We have some characters with shields but I don't think we've really sold what it means to have a shield--like, using the shield to protect yourself and others. Pantheon does it with the Aegis. Leona and Taric have shields to tell us they're defenders, and Leona does a bash with it--but nobody is like GET BEHIND THIS SHIELD OKAY I BLOCKED EVERYTHING.

Isn't that the fantasy of the shield? Or am I alone in that?

I just think it's time for a new tank champion. Shields fit really well on them, so why not a tank with a shield?

dual shield knight in full armour with a full mask and real night armour, kinda like dark souls style. with 2 shield he should be able to charge forward, deflect, and have some kind of discombobulate with those shields

I'd love a champion like that. You know what would be really awesome?

DUAL-WIELDING SHIELDS. Think about it.

Exactly! There are so many ways you could take this idea, I'm surprised you guys at Riot haven't done it yet.

Also - Warmachine. Nice.

I think the traditional knight troph would do wonders in this game. And while using a shield as a form of protectoin is awesome, I REALLY want to see a FIGHTER and not a tank wield the sword and shield. Someone who uses both the sword and their shield in the tradtional sense to smite their enemies and protect against the strongest of foes.

Think about this, lux, ash or Ez (or all of them at once ) ult at a specific area, and this badass knight uses his shield and with his dexterity and a prayer to his gods, he either blocks, mitigates, deflect or reflect any of those spells ( or all of them if its based on a timer and not just 1 spell )

He also uses his shield as a weapon, throwing it and or bashing people with it

Or using the reflection of the sun on his shield to blind his enemies

Or being more creative, his shield has different passives depending on what type of damage he is constanly recieving, causing him to gain magic resist , armor, or retaliation if mixed, or health gain if true damage
