Cavalry Shields are a type of shield that offers high resistance.
Cavalry Shields are sturdy shields with higher relative resistance than other types of shields. They are comparable to Round Shields, but are smaller and sacrifice durability for resistance.
Despite their names, Cavalry Shields are generally better suited to infantry than mounted units due to their small size. Nevertheless, high resistance is a good thing to riders too, as the heavy impacts from high-speed weapons can inflict significant damage to shields. The small size makes these shields ill-suited for projectile defense, a key factor in Sieges.
There are three different types of Cavalry Shields, which may also receive Modifiers.
|Plain Cavalry Shield||160||2.0||8||79||105||96|
|Round Cavalry Shield||200||2.5||14||79||103||195|
|Elite Cavalry Shield||250||3.0||22||79||100||370|
