Diplomat: Increases your experience gain with the One Hand and Shield skill line by 15%. Increases your gold gained by 1%

Diplomat gives Imperials a natural affinity for Shields, allowing them to gain experience more quickly in that skill line. It also increases their gold earnings by a small amount. All Imperials have this ability for free from the start.


  • Prior to Update 11, this skill was called "Shield Affinity", and did not increase your gold earned. This helped distinguish it from the Redguard skill of the same name, which itself was also renamed to Wayfarer
