Elona Wiki

Shield is a constitution based skill that gives a bonus to PV when the character is equipped with a shield. This bonus is percentile, so the higher your base PV, the higher the bonus will be. The bonus only applies once and is based on your total PV, not just from the shield. Thus, wearing extra shields won't net as much PV as the first, assuming they are the same. Wearing a shield while melee attacking trains shield.

This skill will also increase the damage done when you shield bash; however, it does not appear to increase the frequency of shield bashing.

Wearing a shield will lower the casting chance of spells by 5%.

Shield bash[]

When equipped with a shield, your character will occasionally bash the target with their shield. This will inflict damage and may dim the target. This is not affected by the type or number of shields equipped.

Shield Bash chance is: 1% at less than 25 Shield skill, 2% at 25, 3% at 36, 4% at 49, 5% at 64 or more. Shield Bash feat adds a flat 5% bonus, so maximum bash chance is 10%.

PV Effect[]

(Data applies to Elona+ 1.62)

The formula for the PV effect from the Shield skill is: PV = PV * (120 + int(sqrt(ShieldSkill)) * 2) / 100

In short, this means that you gain a 20% bonus to your PV by default, and then for each time your shield skill reaches a value with a whole square root (e.g. 4, 9, 16, 25, 36), you gain 2% additional modifier to your PV score.
