    Could you think of a more terrible idea?

    SOME mob needs to use the shields, it would make the game more fun. also, it would be enough for me if they used shields then they can get them rather than naturally spawning with them. Also, skeletons are one of the few mobs stated to have the intelligence to use them and the ability to use them.

    I agree that there should be shielded mobs in the future! This'll make cleaving axes, piercing crossbows, and harmful splash pots more useful in survival.

    A skeleton with a bow and a shield would be super frustrating - But I don't think it's a bad idea. Maybe an alternate version of the skeleton could spawn occasionally, with a sword and shield instead of a bow. It would keep the skeleton aloof as an armed, semi-skilled combatant, while other mobs simply charge at you.

    Thanks, Cap! This was already implied.
