This shield is rather unique in the sense that it's the second item in Nilly's Realm that can daze enemies (the first being the Quiver of Thunder, which is also available in the Realm of the Mad God Production servers). It boasts much lower shot damage than that of a top-tier shield or Shield of Ogmur, but it applies two albeit weaker effects for a longer time (than the T6) instead. This shield may see some use for Knights that wish to increase their speed without sacrificing too much in terms of stats or damage with the Snake Skin Shield, but it's really not as effective due to it lacking the ability to stun targets. While it's unique, it's definitely recommended to grab a different shield to use on your Knight.
This shield got some slight buffs, but still nothing to write home about recently. Its defense bonus is now higher than the likes of the T6 shield and the Dexterity penalty has been halved from -4 to -2, but its effects are still relatively weak and are not justified in the slightest by the shield's higher stat bonuses.
This item is part of a set: The Ent Man
