Paladin's Might is a shield in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse.[2]

This small buckler imbued with a lost paladin's soul can, with a simple command, grow into a tower shield, which will deflect any attacks that hit it.[2]

One of our designers was playing a match and he had a drop on someone and attacked them with two hits from a Halberd; and they managed just to take out their Paladin's Might and survive; and he was like "That is so OP!"[3]Steven Sharif

Cleric active blocking with a Shield in Alpha-2.[4]

One thing that we're kind of toying around with the idea of, is giving everybody a universal active block mechanic, in which case the shield version would probably be better but you'd still be able to parry or whatnot with a two-handed weapon, or even maybe a dual wield.[5]Tradd Thompson

Active blocking is present in Alpha-2.[4] Shields are better for active blocking, but any melee weapon may be able to be used to parry.[5]

  • The developers are considering the inclusion of active blocking in a subset of universal skills that apply to all classes.[5][6]
    • The developers will be testing the use of separate energy mechanics for universal skills in Alpha-2.[7][4]
  • Previously the developers had not finalized designs for active blocking and were previously leaning toward using more traditional buff-oriented universal damage mitigation for the MMO, and were also considering interaction between action-based blocking and a passive block stat.[8][9][9]
  • The Paladin's Might shield in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse had its own hit box and hit points (HP); that could actively block projectiles.[10]
