Use in HistoryEdit

They were used as bodyguards for the nobility of Black Marsh, and as the ace in the hole for the Argonian military during the Akaviri Invasion, when a trio of Argonian battlemages, leading a phalanx of Shellback warriors, interveined in the ongoing battle, aiding in the expulsion of the Akaviri[1].

Battle formationsEdit

Shellbacks usually liked to fight in a close knit shield and pike phalanx.
