Shield blocking is akin to parry when holding a shield in the off hand. Shield block is primarily effective against axes, maces, spears, and staffs, and to a lesser extent, polearms. Daggers, flails and whips can be blocked as well, with significantly reduced effectiveness.

Shield block is a staple defense of fighters and lawful templars. It is also very useful for characters that wield offensive weapons such as an axe, mace or dagger, as it helps to offset the penalty incurred to parry with these types of weapons.
