The dwarvish roundshield is a kind of shield. When unidentified, it appears as a large round shield.


Dwarvish roundshields are commonly found on well-equipped dwarves, especially in the Gnomish Mines.


When worn, it provides 2 AC. It is one of two shields to provide 2 AC, with the other being the shield of reflection.


Main article: Shield#Strategy

The dwarvish roundshield is likely to be the first 2 AC shield the player finds; despite this, it is very heavy compared to most shields and provides no special properties, so it should be swapped for a shield of reflection, small shield or elven shield as soon as possible.
