  • When crafting, players can customize the shield with a few different pre-set designs and colours by clicking the button beneath the item name in the crafting window.
  • Despite being an upgrade of the Bronze buckler, the Banded shield has a lower parry bonus which makes it have less block power when parrying (up to 7.5 - 11.25 when fully upgraded depending on the blocking skill).
