"The Heater Shield is a medium-sized metal shield that offers solid protection

without weighing down the wielder too much." - description.

Compared to the Buckler Shield, the Heater Shield sacrifices the quickness of

lifting the shield for better coverage and less stamina use. It is slightly wider

than the Kite Shield, but not as long.

The solid coverage of this shield combined with the Man-at-Arms ' high run

speed makes this the preferred special weapon when dealing with Archers.

When playing as a knight , it's neccessary for the flail (heavy and original). It

allows the knight to be more agile than when wielding the Kite Shield  and Tower Shield .

This shield's unique shape makes it an ideal choice for people playing in first

person persepective, as the blocking animation doesn't cover much of the screen.

Both Heater Shields are shown in the Team Selection screen.
