The Skyloft Banded Shield is a round, wooden shield and the upgraded form of the Skyloft Wooden Shield. It offers more protection than a Hide Shield, and weighs as much as a Chitin Shield.
All three Wooden Shields can often be found on Staltroops.

Background and Inspiration Edit
The Skyloft Banded, Wooden, and Braced Shields were added in Relics of Hyrule version 5.6.
The shield's design is heavily based on its appearance in Skyward Sword.
The resistance to shock damage, as with the other two wooden shields, is referencing the original shield's benefit of protection against electricity or lightning-based attacks in Skyward Sword.
The recipe to craft the Banded Shield is a reference to the original recipe needed to upgrade the Wooden Shield into the Banded Shield in Skyward Sword, using ingredients from Skyrim that reference the ingredients in the original game. The Bear Claw is in place of the Monster Claw, the Ectoplasm is in place of the Jelly Blob, and the Pearls are in place of the Amber Relics.
JKalenad is very proud of the texture he made for the Banded Shield, and is particularly happy with the paint effect of the twin birds.
