Description This small wooden shield is worn strapped to your forearm.


In PnP, you can use a bow or crossbow without penalty while carrying a buckler. You can also use your shield arm to wield a weapon and you take a –1 penalty on attack rolls while doing so. In DDO, none of these are possible, thus bucklers have no advantages over light and heavy Shields.

There is an advantage for casters as bucklers have no associated arcane spell failure.
