Square shield[edit | edit source]
Square shields (or sq shield) are actually rectangular in shape, and may be smithed in all metals and also found in black. It is weaker in all areas than the kiteshield, but has lower magic penalties. The Smithing level required is 8 above the base level for any metal, and the highest shield available in free-to-play region stores is the mithril square shield.
The anti-dragon shield also has the same shape as a "square" and is an excellent shield for the pure mage, since it has no penalty to magic attack and a small amount of magic defence, otherwise comparable to an iron sq shield.
Kiteshield[edit | edit source]
Kiteshields are better in all areas than a square shield, other than the magic penalty. Getting hold of a good kiteshield in free-to-play requires a high Smithing level, or trading with other players who are either members or accomplished smiths of high level. The Smithing level required is 12 above the base level for any metal, and at 62 for a mithril kiteshield, the gap between levels is already becoming large.
