Shields are the fourth type of weapon in Jacksmith. Each one requires 16 ore to build. Shields are wielded by sheep (or rams, since they are males). Shields are used as offense rather than defense in Jacksmith, so they do not protect your other soldiers.
Types of Shields
The three kinds of shields are:
- Pointed Shield
- Round Shield
- Box Shield
Acquiring the Shields
The Shields, like all other weapons, have to be acquired as the player travels. They can acquire the shields at the following places:
- Cinder Springs, for the Pointed Shield
- Boneyard Dunes, for the Round Shield
- Wormwood Hollow, for the Box Shield
Upon acquiring all the shields, the award Shield Builder is earned.
