Behind the scenesEdit
The shield is also supposed to be very powerful, allowing the player to take on a god-like character. This would make it similar to the Shield of Achille possibly even more powerful than that legendary shield (which served as no defense against the dark winds of the cataclysm). It certainly does help shield against magic fire, and likely would have defended against dragon fire had he found it earlier in his adventure. Along with the other pieces of armor, it likely grants Connor near invincibility against average foes, and generally speaking even the powerful foes he encounters in the Realm of the Sun.
