Shield refers to a type of armor worn in the off hand equipment slot. Shields are also called aegis, buckler and other references.

A shield contributes to the Armor and can prevent damage by blocking attacks. Warriors, Paladins, and Shaman are the only classes that may use shields. A shield cannot be used with weapons that require 2 hands as it fills the Off Hand slot. Template:AlsoSee 2
