Tower shields are one of the basic types of shields in ADOM. They offer the best defensive capabilities of all basic shields, whilst causing slight penalties to accuracy.


DesirabilityEdit

Tower shields offer better DV bonuses than other types of basic shields. Tower crystal shields stats are on par with eternium, except for being far heavier but having a considerably lower DL (meaning that they can be found significantly earlier and boost the PC's chances of survival).
