Another week and another short video from Iron Gate to give a quick look into some changes. This week it's all about shields and how different they will be.
We've already seen the food changes and the blocking / staggering changes, which paired up with the newly tweaked shield mechanics definitely will make combat feel totally different. Tower shields will see a big buff with a lot more knock-back, making it a tanks best friend. The Buckler will let you parry oncoming strikes, while the regular round shields will be a "balanced" choice for a regular fighter.
That's all that was explained this time with more food recipes to be detailed next time. The Hearth & Home update will launch during Q3 2021, so presumably all these short videos will lead up to the release before the end of September.
