Effect: +Shield Usage skill, Conjures a shield
Example Messaging: Cast without a shield:

In a fiery blaze, a shimmering tower shield appears in your left hand.

Wearing the shield:
Your shield dissolves into a pinpoint of light and quickly reconstructs itself as a flickering oval shield on your left arm.

Shaping the shield:
Your shield suddenly fluctuates, changing shape and reforming into a luminous target shield.

Effect ends:
Your tower shield fades away into nothingness.

Cast while left hand is occupied:
A fiery blaze covers your shield arm like a vambrace of solid sunlight.

  • If Shield of Light does not summon a shield due your left hand being occupied, a Shield of Light will not appear once your left hand is emptied.
  • Dropping a Shield of Light will temporarily free your left hand but the shield will reappear after a moment.
  • Shield of Light will summon a shield if you are already wearing or holding one, as long as your left hand is free.
  • The summoned oval (medium sized) shield of light can be arm-worn despite being larger than what a cleric could normally wear.
  • Unbend sigils can destroy a shield of light when dropped in the same room.




Valid options

  • target (small)
  • oval (medium)
  • tower (large)
  • spiked (adds puncture damage)
  • blank (without spikes)
  • the name of any Immortal (alters appearance)
  • custom (alters appearance, requires custom scroll)

Target (small) and oval (medium) options can be worn on the arm. Tower (large) shields will automatically shape to oval when worn.

Custom designs

Custom scrolls have been sold at various festival shops (e.g. See The Light) or are available as part of quest loot (e.g. the salt-stained vellum scroll). When you SHAPE SHIELD TO CUSTOM, your shield will take on the appearance set in the last scroll you studied.

These custom scrolls bind to the user when you STUDY them. Once a scroll has been studied by one cleric, another cleric cannot study them to learn the pattern. The scroll is not destroyed, however, allowing you to collect multiple scrolls with different designs.
