1.14 shield bonus +X not taken into AC?

Postby LordSith » Wed Jun 02, 2021 3:51 pm

Hi,

This shield has a +3 bonus... which is counted not in AC?

Is that normal? that makes shield really poor defensive options compared to two weapon defenses..

Hiya :)

Okay, it may not be super obvious when looking at the modifiers, but everything is counted correctly here.

On the third line you see: Shield (+3 Frostward), bonus +5

Then, two lines below, you see: Left hand item (+3 Frostward), bonus +1

So you're getting a +6 bonus to Armour Class from holding this artifact light shield.

The +5 bonus includes +1 from the fact that it's a light shield, +1 from your feat Shield Expertise, and +3 from the shield's magic enhancement value.

The final +1 is a special bonus from this artifact item. In the item's description, you'll see the last line << Give bonus Armour Class, Generic, +1 >>.

Cheers 8-)

Ah okay. You are right. i started reading from bottom, found the "left hand" line and stopped reading.
