Description With his group of eleven other Purple Dragon knights, the former owner of this shield raided the Haunted Halls and was never seen again. Hopefully the same fate shall not befall you.

It should be noted that the Upgraded version of this shield receives an Orb bonus which provides a +8 bonus to Saves and Elemental Resistances while actively blocking, which is not new to Orb users. However, Shield Bashes (both manually activated AND auto-procced from Bashing items, Improved Shield Bash feat, or the Bashing X included upon the shield itself) also will provide the character with the +8 Orb bonus to saves and elemental resistances for the duration of the bash, approximately 1 second.
