A Shield spike refers to an item crafted by blacksmiths to a shield that deals damage every time a hit is blocked. Shield spikes occupy the enchantment slot and will overwrite any existing enchantment. They can also be attached to a shield of any level and used by a shield-wielding character of any level.
