  • Myrwatch's galleryCC contains a special holder for this item that displays it alongside Wuuthrad.
  • Blocking while having this shield equipped in the first person view can blot out over a third of the screen, potentially making combat difficult, as you can't quite see what the enemy is doing.
  • This shield can only be obtained by finishing the Companions' questline during Glory of the Dead, whereupon it will be in the boss chest near the end of the tomb, before the hallways leading back up to the entrance. If you enter the ruin before the quest (or even being unaffiliated with the Companions at all) by entering the room with Ysgramor's statue and using a wooden plate to glitch through the sealed doorway in front of you, the shield will not be in the chest by the time you fight your way to the end of the tomb.
