Baldur's Gate Wiki

Medium Shield +1 is a magical shield which offers a 2 point bonus to Armor Class, versus the 1 AC bonus for a standard Medium Shield. It has no penalties or bonuses to AC from specific types of attacks, and weighs 6 lbs. In Baldur's Gate II, like all shields, its appearance has been drastically altered from its counterpart in the original game.


A medium shield is carried in the same manner as a small shield. Unlike the small shield, however, its weight prevents the character from using his shield hand for anything other than carrying the medium shield. Medium shields are usually made of metal, range from 3'-4' in diameter, and can be of any shape, from round to square to a spread dragon's wings. A typical medieval shield resembles a triangle with one point facing downward.
