The Shield of Solitude is a unique, leveled Solitude Guard's Shield found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It grants magic resistance that scale from 10% (level 1-17) to 30% (level 40+). It also increases the blocked damage from  15% (level 1-17)  to 35% (level 40+)

AcquisitionEdit

The Shield of Solitude is given as a reward by Falk Firebeard upon completion of the quest "The Wolf Queen Awakened".

EnchantingEdit

Equipping this shield grants the following skill bonuses, however the magnitude is based on level:

This shield is one of the few unique shields that can be disenchanted to learn a more powerful version of "Resist Magic" on the enchantment list. At level 100 enchanting, it can provide a 25% resistance that can also be stacked with the original Resist Magic enchantment of 20%, if the Extra Effect perk has been unlocked (The original fortify block effect is separate, however and won't be with the 45% magic resistance).

SmithingEdit

The shield cannot be improved at a workbench, regardless of perks chosen.

LevelsEdit

The armor, weight, value, and magnitude of the enchantment are based on the Dragonborn's level. The best possible version is available at level 40.

BugsEdit

This section contains bugs related to Shield of Solitude. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , and  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  • When wielding it in first person view, when moving forward, the shield will "turn around" 180 degrees, making the front visible.
  • It can be worn with a bow, but this will lead to a terrible error where removing the shield will cause the Dragonborn to stand as though using bare hands, even though the bow is still equipped. This makes it impossible to attack, and if the bow is removed, the Dragonborn will stand forever in the punch fighting stance without being able to attack or change weapons.
    • It can be fixed by loading a previous save.
  • It can be worn simultaneously with another shield, but it may result in the same error as the bug listed above.
