Shield screenshot

A champion with a shield that blocks any type of damage.

Shields are not to be confused with similar effects like Spell Shield Spell shield and visual shielding effects like Eclipse Eclipse.

Hybrid resistances icon Shields are an addition of hit-points that absorb damage in place of actual Health icon health, this distinction separates the amount from calculation by health based effects like Primordial Burst Primordial Burst, Blade of the Ruined King item Blade of the Ruined King or Death from Below Death from Below. It may persist on the recipient to absorb a set amount of damage (shield strength) and/or until the duration runs out (shield duration). An active shield is indicated on the champion's overhead health bar in a distinct color.

The unit's resistances (Armor icon armor and Magic resistance icon magic resistance) will still mitigate the damage before being absorbed by shielding. The shield's strength can be increased by Heal powerHybrid resistances icon heal and shield power.

Shield types

  • Normal shields: They absorb all types of damage (physical, magic and true), and appear greyish-white.
  • Magic shields: They only absorb magic damage, and appear purple.
  • Physical shields: They only absorb physical damage, and appear orange.
