General Edit

The Shield Specialist skill increases the chance that a Shield will block an attack. This is only useful for designated tank characters, who sacrifice the damage of a Two-handed weapon or a Dual Wielding option for the added defenses that a shield offers. Unfortunately, the increased chance does not scale very well, so investing only one or two points is recommended, as spending 3 or more skill points for another 5% is not very efficient.
