Game mode: Online official
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvE
The shields that are not from any of the DLCs add between 5 and 15 armour to your armour value. The shields from all 4 DLC’s Aquilonian, Khitan, Pictish and Yamatai do not add any amount to your armour value.
It seems the amount of armour added depends on the quality of the shield;
Flawless = +15 armour
Exceptional = +10 armour (I’m assuming this is the case, I have not made an exceptional shield).
Normal = +5 armour.
I’ve created the following shields and checked how much armour they added.
Flawless Star metal shield: +15 armour
Flawless Shell shield: +15 armour (I found the shells and did not murder a shaleback hatchling)
Flawless Serpent man shield: +15 armour
Flawless Carapace shield: +15 armour
Flawless Hardened steel shield: +15 armour
Flawless Steel heater shield: +15 armour
Hardened Steel shield: +5 armour
Setite shield: +5 armour
Dragon bone shield: +5 armour
Epic Flawless Aquilonian shield: +0 armour.
Flawless Aquilonian shield: +0 armour.
Flawless Khitan shield: +0 armour.
Flawless Pictish shield: +0 armour.
Flawless Yamatai shield: +0 armour.
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
- Create any shield that is not from a DLC.
- Check your armour value.
- Equip the shield you created and check your armour value, it will have increased by between 5 and 15.
- Repeat the above with the shields from any of the 4 DLC’s, the armour value will not increase on equipping a DLC shield.
