Shimmer Scale is a Shield in Pillars of Eternity 2.


This small shield is made from the scale of long-dead dragon, inlaid with mother of pearl and polished to a shine. It once belonged to xaurip warrior, who inherited it on the death of his clutch mother, who in turn inherited it from her tribe's shaman, who was gifted it by the dragon their tribe worshipped in recognition of his devotion... It's yours now.

Shimmer Scale Quality

Players can only upgrade a Unique Shield's Quality to a higher tier level. Upgrading the Quality only affects its Deflection by 2 points.










Shimmer Scale Unique Enchantment Upgrades

Enchantments play a vital role in a player's equipment, these Enchantments provide different special effects that can be used as an advantage in battle. Some Unique Shields carry multiple Enchantments that players may equip and some Unique Shields only has one Enchantment. These Enchantments can only be found in Unique Items and can be upgraded if needed.

Players can unlock all of the upgrades listed for a Unique Shield's Enchantment, however, some upgrades replace the current enchantment, and some can be stacked as bonus effects. By doing this, players must have the required ingredients and sufficient Copper Pands (CP) to be able to craft their preferred upgrade.
