The Hylian Shield is a common, versatile shield. It can be found or crafted in two primary variants: a heavy, steel-based version and a light, quicksilver-based version. A third variant, the Hylian Heavy Shield, is larger and stronger than its smaller steel-based counterpart. Both versions of the shield have a wooden back and a distinctive strap and handle arrangement.

The steel-based shield is slightly stronger than a Dwarven Shield and weighs one unit more than a Daedric Shield.

The quicksilver-based shield is equal in strength to an Elven Shield and weighs the same as a Chitin Shield.

The Hylian Shield can be improved into a stronger shield or corrupted, granting a different appearance. This can be done at an Ancient Enchanter or Terminan Forge.

Awakening Edit

All versions of the Hylian Shield and Dark Shield can be improved into stronger forms.

Awakening a steel Hylian Shield or heavy armor Dark Shield will make it equal in strength to a Dragonplate Shield, while awakening a quicksilver Hylian Shield or light armor Dark Shield will make it one point stronger than a Dragonscale Shield. An Awakened Hylian Heavy Shield or Dark Heavy Shield will be one point stronger than their smaller counterparts.

Awakened Hylian Shields apply a 10% resistance to magic at all times when equipped*. When blocking, they apply 25% resistance to all magic, shock, frost, poison, and disease, with an extra 40% resistance to fire, and 40% fortification of Block.

*As of 6.3. Prior to 6.3, this was 10% fortify Block.

Awakened Dark Shields carry the same enchantment, but with a 40% resistance to frost instead of fire.

Awakened shields can be found wielded by the same enemies as un-awakened shields.

Background and Inspiration Edit

The model for the Hylian Shield was made by chief-01 and converted to Skyrim by CaptainRC. Its appearance is based on the version of the shield from Twilight Princess.

The Hylian Shield was originally included in a standalone mod, and was later integrated into the first version of Relics of Hyrule. The corruption system was left intact when the mod was merged. Prior to version 4.475, the crafting of a Hylian Shield required a schematic located in Yngvild. The schematic was a holdover from the standalone mod and was replaced with an actual Hylian Shield. This was done to avoid bugs with the schematic, including its image not appearing or it vanishing altogether.

The Dark Shield is based on the appearance of Dark Link's shield in Super Smash Bros. Brawl (seen here on the far right), while the Awakened Dark Shield is based on the shield wielded by Link when dressed in blue in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, as well as the shield wielded by Dark Link in Super Smash Bros. 4 (seen here, third from the right).

The Hylian Heavy Shield was originally an optional file that increased the size of the Hylian Shield. This was created in response to many comments during the tenure of both the standalone mod and Relics of Hyrule requesting that the shield be enlarged, despite JKalenad's opinion that the Hylian Shield was already properly sized. In Version 6.0, the optional file was merged into the mod as an alternative Hylian Shield.

In Version 6.3, the Hylian Heavy Shield will be retextured, giving it a metal backing instead of a wooden backing. Its recipe will also change to reflect its new texture.
