Shields are wearable items that replaced capes in the Public Beta 20 update. Shields are not craftable, but can be obtained by achieving certain goals in Middle-earth, be it from mini-quests, achievements, alignment, or something else.

The shields will not provide any more protection than the player's armour already provides and are purely decorative. They will also not be visible to anyone who does not have the Lord of the Rings mod installed. Shields will usually be worn on the back like a backpack, but will appear in the player's left hand when they wield an item dealing melee attack damage in their right hand.

The panel for selecting your shields can be accessed by opening the Middle-earth menu (default press "L") and clicking on the button for shields.

Certain NPCs will also spawn wearing shields.

All shields as of Update 35 are listed below, sorted into the categories and the order that they are found in on the Middle-earth menu.
