Unique shields in Skyrim are shields that are acquired for specific means that provide additional and special effects to the player when being used. Shields allow players to block effectively as well as provide additional armor to reduce physical damage taken further. Unique shields are supported by the Block skill and are available in both heavy and light variants, benefitting from the respective armor skill and benefits. When allocated with the right perks, shields are able to block not only direct melee attacks, but also incoming arrows, power attacks, and even fire, frost, and shock damage. Their bash ability can be used to stagger and even knock down opponents.
