The dwarvish roundshield is a type of shield that appears in NetHack. It grants 2 AC when worn, and appears as a large round shield when unidentified.


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


Main article: Shield#Strategy

The dwarvish roundshield is likely to be the first 2 AC shield the player finds. It is very heavy compared to most shields and provides no special properties, so it is typically swapped for a lighter shield (such as a small shield, shield of reflection, or elven shield) as soon as possible.


The dwarvish roundshield first appears in NetHack 3.0.0.
