Shields are absolutely silly

I don’t understand how a steel 2handed weapon cant absolutely destroy a wooden shield…

I really hope shields are fixed in the future so they’re more realistic…instead of being an immovable mountain of blockspam.

Certain weapons annihilate shields.

They gave different weapons different utility (imagine that).
Axes and maces have the shieldsmash ability, which can, and do, wreak shields.

oh i didn’t know that! where in the tooltips or descriptions did it say that? i must have missed it

Yeah, it shows right below the weapon grade and above the durability.
Just keep in mind that you have to use heavy attacks to get the listed effects.

Weapons have more effects than what they say, though. Axes will also apply a minor bleed.
