Shield in World of Warcraft is an item that can be used to prevent damage as armor, block attacks, and be equipped in off-hand slot. A shield cannot be used with weapons that require 2 hands as it fills the Off Hand slot. A shield contributes to the Armor more than any other items of armour. Warriors, Paladins, and Shamen are the only classes that may use shields.

The following example is a level 45 required epic shield:


Wall of the Dead
Binds when equipped
Off Hand Shield
1937 Armor 34 Block
+10 Strength
+15 Stamina
Durability 120 / 120
Equip: When struck in combat has a 3% chance to encase the caster in bone, increasing armor by 150 for 20 sec.
Requires Level 45
