Long Description

This extremely weighty shield has been made from the finest Klatchian steel. Strong, durable, and weighty, it would be capable of protecting someone from even the most determined of attacks - at least if you were able to carry it. An ornate representation of a phoenix in flight has been inlaid upon the central boss of the shield in gold.

Appraises As

The Klatchian steel tower shield is about four and a half feet long and about three and a half feet wide. It is made of klatchian steel and looks like it could be held as a shield.

Acquisition

Ephebe smuggler caves as random/rare chest loot in certain chests. Some player shops.

Notes

Effectively the same as the bronze tower shields available from the Smithy and the citadel guards in Ephebe in weight terms for EFF, but being klatchian steel does not need repairing every 60 minutes so is much more desirable.
