[Turtle Shield Variants]

Turtle Shields are a common shield type manufactured by Pangolin. The Turtle Shield is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Usage & Description

A Turtle Shield has high capacity for its level, but also reduces the user's maximum health. The shield recharge rate is lower than other shield types. Turtle Shields may offer resistance or immunity to elemental damage.

At higher rarity levels, Turtle Shields offer faster recharge rates and lower penalties to maximum health.


  • Most Overpowered variants of the unique Turtle shields will be effectively unusable past Overpowered level 1 or 2 (level 73 or 74). The maximum health reduction on these shields increases as the OP level does while the wearer's maximum health does not, to the point where equipping one will reduce the wearer's maximum health to one. However, most OP8 Turtle Shields will still function perfectly.
