Light Shields. Do you use them?

  • November 16, 2013 5:14 PM EST

    In my 2 years of playing Skyrim I never really used Light Shields, I normally just run with Heavy Shields even on Light Armoured characters. If you use Light Shields, please tell me why you use them. :)

    Hide Shield is my all-time favorite. It looks awesome! :)

    I use light shield on light armoured characters just because I have the smithing perks to improve them more. I usually have mixed light and heavy armour so I just choose a shield that looks good with the rest of the armour.

    I don't pay attention to what type of shield it is, I choose my equipment based on aesthetics :P

    I use them if I'm going up the light side of the tree or for roleplay reasons.
