Wood Tower Shield

The Wood Tower Shield is the first Tower Shield you can craft in Valheim. It has high block armor but cannot be used to parry. All tower shields also inflict a significant movement speed penalty.

Most players will prefer the mobility of Round Shields and their ability to parry. Parrying in Valheim is a powerful technique that gives you room to counter-attack. However, the tower shields have an exceptional blocking ability and are capable of soaking up tons of damage.
