Shield ( Mastery )
In order to equip a shield, you must wear it like armor and use a one handed weapon from the action bar; the character automatically brings up a shield upon doing so. Putting a shield in the action bar renders the shield useless as the player just hold's the shield like it would with any regular item.
To block with a shield, hold down the left shift key. Blocked attacks will be mitigated and the damage splash screen numbers are green while blocking. You may also bash with a left mouse click while holding down the shift button.
Each block with a shield will give experience.
