Shields are a type of weapon in Ashes of Creation.[1]

  • Shields in the MMORPG grant a static defense/damage mitigation value.[2]
  • Shields may also offer additional value/block chances on a directional basis.[2]

Active blocking

The Paladin's Might shield in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse has its own hit box with hit points (HP). It can actively block projectiles.[1]


The user interface will allow emblems, logos and symbols to be designed in-game.[4][5][6]

The developers are now considering including image import functionality.[8] This was previously not under consideration.[4]

I know previously we had spoken about not allowing custom user images in the game, however I think we're leaning more now in the direction of allowing for custom user images. Absolutely well what it will be is the fact that we're a subscription game and if you want to jeopardize your account by doing the wrong thing with regards to custom users [images] then by all means you may do so and we'll have stringent practices in place to prevent that from actually being an issue.[8]Steven Sharif

Emblem editor functionality is tentatively planned for Alpha-2.[6]
