Overall good champion

Passive: I like the passive. This makes him buildably ad.

Ability 1: I like this ability. Is the shield throw drop location random or does it have a specific landing location? If it does have a formula you could make it travel half the distance it was cast from and have the angle random.

Ability 2: I like this ability
Throw: I like the throw but you called it heater shields. Slows and stuns are usually cold/frost based.

Ability 3: The name Bulwark is already taken by singed. It is still a good ability.
It is an impassible terrain shield move which is different. It makes his other shield look weak.

Ult: The cool down is high. An attack speed based hero could easily drop your ult. The ability defense is also low. With 30% reduction, you would still take 70% of the damage. It could be more useful if you tweaked it.

He is a good champion. You could use health and ad scaling on his abilities. He has one ability with health and ad but only one ability. The scaling would make him more interesting.

My review wasn't that good. You can review one of mine if you want to.

It would work similar to how Draven’s Spinning Axes work.

Heater Shields are a type of shield. Not having anything to do with actually being heated or being hot.

Bulwark is also taken by Galio. I need to change the name.

Also remember, he can’t auto attack while he’s running the impassible terrain shield.

- I respectfully disagree. By lasting four seconds and blocking 4 of each enemy champions attacks, Aegis can (for example if the enemy AD carry has ~300 AD, 1.5 AS, 50% crit and he targets your AD carry who only has 73 armor [average value] Aegis effectively blocks ~1300 physical damage that your AD carry would have taken)

- I let the AP portion of Final Stand be lower because once an AP uses their spells they might be out of the fight for awhile or a bit, while and an autoattacking champion can keep going indefinitely until they're killed

- Aegis is supposed to be a tank primary, with the option of potentially building tanky dps. While ulting you take 70% of the damage, but can be further reduced by MR and armor.

His passive gives him AD, last thing I want is to give him free AD AND abilities that scale off AD heavily.

I've not read all the comments so this may have already been said, but I think there could be something gained out of having a passive buff based on his different shields, kind of like Udyr's stances. I say this because you said:

so with the fact that he "equips" different shields, it would make sense to me.

if you get the chance it would be appreciated.

I do like the concept of this champion, especially with him being the "Aegis" of his team. (Nice name to go with the title).

His abilities are good and the Q ability to throw different types of shields based on the abilities you've recently used is creative as you can decide which shield to throw in a various situations. His ultimate is where I might have a bit of confusion on, but it is a good counter-initiating ability as far as I can see for teamfights.

Overall, this champion is nicely done and I would like to see a shield-oriented champion in the LoL Roster (not shield & blade, but the shield itself).

I like this tanky support that uses shields.
There is not much I think I can say about it that I can really criticize much. I do think a 2 second snare is a bit long and should be reduced a bit to maybe 1.5 seconds.

I am a bit unclear on a few things, such as the counter on United Defense, so when they attack, you receive damage and deal damage back to them with an attack? Or does it kind of reflect damage based on the % of your attack damage? Also since you said there is a duration of 4 seconds, why did you decide to make the counter duration 8 seconds? I think it should be a consistent 4 seconds. Though I do think 4 seconds for damage reduction could be made to be 5 seconds instead.

And for the reduction of skill-shots from Bulwark, being head on means if the skill-shot hits you as you are running away, it does full damage right? (meaning it hits your back)

Finally with Final stand, there is something I would like to know, redirecting basic attacks, does that mean attacking one of Aegis's allies will make you attack Aegis? So something like a taunt that occurs if you attack?

I am mostly unclear on these things.
I can not really claim this as a review rather than me questioning what you mean sometimes, but maybe it would help others who read this to clarify a few things.

I like this concept of using shields.
Although I did not provide much of a review, will you consider taking a look at my concept?
