I wonder if riot thinks its possible to do it such that a shield wielder has a chance to block autoattacks in a about a 140 degree arc in front of him and if its possible to make animations of the character moving his shield arm roughly towards where the actual blow from a monster or enemy champions is coming from. The animations could be so cool looking, especially with a buckler using character whod have to fling his arm around.

To be honest, if anyones gonna be rocking dual shields its gotta be a yordle. Anything else would just be lame by comparison.

Isn't that the fantasy of the shield? Or am I alone in that?
How about a shield placed like Anivia's wall that reduces damage of all enemy skillshots (and possible projectiles) that pass through it? Essentially the anti Jayce. Or perhaps making it a 1 way skillshot stopper?

If I grabbed Teemo, impaled him on the end of my harpoon, and used that as a meat shield would that count?
