    Also shields used by mobs will no longer break instantly when touched. Like what's the point of having a shield when touching it once instantly breaks it? Mobs should use shields better too. They could block every projectile, but cannot attack and block at the same time, so they're vulnerable when doing melee attacks.

    Would there be a new shield spot in your interface?

    Perhaps you give up the bow for one of the shields? Dunno how this would fit with quiver artifacts, though...

    Yeah I would love that. Really felt that Shields are missing when my character is holding a one handed weapon.

    Also Protection enchantment for shields too! or some passive Regenation enchantment or life steal would be nice.

    I think Shields should replace bows/crossbows, so they use the same slot as bows/crossbows and you have to make a choice, do I want a shield to protect me more or do I want a bow to do some ranged firing? :D

    like my own post about adding more armor slots, i feel like shields should be added too, and they should be able to give a good block chance and maybe even good chunk of Thorns.

    Maybe a sheild could even be an artifact if they don't want to add it as an item type.

    As for more armor slots, they should have had as many armor slots as vanilla minecraft has, would made sense too.

    With only 1 armor slot they made the game so simple...

    Maybe that would be too much work for them, they would have to change every armor to a chest plate and then add gauntlets, helmets, leggins, boots. But it would be worth it I think, would make the game much better.

    This would add for more options when playing for sure.

    Add a shield slot so that way it is part of your set up, and you don't have to lose using any items that you want to use.

    Maybe add different types of shields.

    Maybe they could replace the bow/projectile slot, and you have to choose what play style you'd prefer? Do you play as a beefy dude that gets in the thick of it, or do you hang back and do your pew pew action with the bow.

    I got a big ass suggestion in the works, but I'm glad other people want to see shields in the game. If any of you want to see the Doc let me know I'd love for more opinions.

    The best way to implement it would be a 1h/shield like the dual wield weapons. So there would be no new slot, kind of like a new weapon type

    Maybe it could be an artifact?

    so it would take 1 hit, cooldown, then the player could use it again?

    or maybe the sheild has its own hitpoints

    Maybe also multiple variants then?

    ya it would be cool to have shields, but more then one type. There would be the normal minecraft shield as a common. Then a unique one would be the skeleton's shields from the desert temple. Shields would be dropped in highblock halls, desert temple. Also highblock hall's should drop a unique shield from those armored vindacators.
