    The fight between Achilles and Hector, in the movie Troy, was one of the best choreographed duel I have witnessed, and in part mainly due to the shield. So in a way, it's a big disappointment when I discovered I couldn't use one in this game.

    So how hard would it have been to add something similar to Dark Souls where you can switch between one-handed weapon & shield, or one-handed weapon & leonidas spear?

    What bugging me the most about the shields is, that every normal enemy can use them and got some fancy animations, espacially with spears. It is so sad, that you as player arent able to use them, too

    And the stupid spear-length or let me beter say, that in cutscenes NPCs got the ordinary standard(-length) dory at this time and then in gameplay use these telescope-like spears. Urgh.
    Why can´t we have at least a normal dory that that does not extend when drawn?

    Hey everyone, noted your concerns and appreciate this discussion. Opening the next questions to everyone in the thread. How do you feel about using parry to block attacks? Are your concerns based on gameplay mechanics or overall lack of shield option?

    Parry is fine, but I find myself dodging more. Then again, I dodge more in Origins too. Shield use was on occasion, but not all that necessary.

    The dodge animations are a huge improvement over Origins.

    Was very very very disappointed with the lack of shields

    Very very much disappointed. It was almost a deal breaker to me. Can't you fix that, Ubisoft. It would mean a lot to me, an old AC fan.

    the parry is ok the doge too ! but miss shield hardly speacialy in this moment of history is look like you play in rome and you dont have your gladius or you scutum (shield) !

    but can you let people mod your game ! like the witcher or other because people can do this ! if you cant. let us appreciate 100% the ancient greece you make beautifull world !

    nice armor and sword ect ect nice job on this !


    But you faill whithout the shield give us a small shield or true hoplon i can be happy without any skill just shield ! i dont understand your mind when you said no shield for this game !
    give them a broken spear the will deal with thats !

    in your game some action or cinematic said about the shield is verry important in this time !



    Ubisoft give us shield or let people can mod this game !!!! for have the Hoplite styles

    The gameplay is fine, it is just getting hard to parry when you are crowded by enemies.
    A shield could cover one of your side while you are fighting the other one. Just like in Origins.
    So concern about overall lack of shield as option. Moreover when you see your enemies using them with all animations and dynamics.

    But thanks for your reply!

    PS: maybe we can also get these nice shorter spears like in the cutscenes. They would fit these era better. But shields should get priority
