Item:Swashbuckler

From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Swashbuckler[edit]

An indispensable tool for many a pirate when dueling with a single blade. It can parry an enemy's blows effectively and even leave them open to counterattack.

Note: Update 12 corrected it to being a Buckler instead of a Small Shield with stats of a Large Shield, so it now has 5% ASF (instead of 15% ASF) and no Armor Check Penalty (instead of -1 ACP).
Note: Update 14 then changed Bucklers to have 0% ASF.
Update 39 version (non-tiered)
Older version (tiered)
