The Blades Shield is a piece of heavy armor and part of the Blades Armor set found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


This piece of armor cannot be created at a blacksmith's forge, however it can be found in the following locations:


It can be upgraded with a Steel Ingot at a workbench, however it does not benefit from any Smithing perks.

This means the armor cannot be improved past flawless quality without boosting the Smithing skill over 100. This can be achieved by using enchanted items and/or blacksmithing potions to Fortify Smithing.

  •  PC   360   PS3   For vampire characters, the shield will not be shown when equipped, nor will it provide any protection. The bug persists through region transitions, reloads, upgrades, and enchantments. The Blades Shield and Ebony Shield are the only two confirmed shields to be affected by this bug. Removing vampirism solves the problem, but a proper fix still hasn't been discovered.
  • If the Dragonborn is disarmed when wielding the Blades Shield, it may turn into a Blades Sword.
