Round Shields are a type of shield that offer high durability.
Round Shields are best suited to infantry that intend to engage in close-quarters combat. Since they are not as tall as other kinds of shields, they are not as effective at protecting the lower body against projectiles, such as would be encountered in large numbers during Sieges. The lack of height may also be a concern to mounted units that frequently take hits to their lower body. Round shields are also mounted higher on the arm, blocking more of their wielder's sight in first person view than some other shields.
There are seven different types of Round Shields, which may also receive Modifiers.
