How do the Shields work?
Shields can take a lot of punishment – and they can be specialized to defend against specific weapons. Use them to optimally modify your castle to withstand enemy attacks.
Ah, you want to protect against certain attacks?
To specialize a shield, select it and then use the shield symbol from the menu. Choose between rock, fire or magic and you have one less worry. No specialization, hmm? Then choose Balanced.
