Examples of 10 complete soul shields

Soul Shields are sets of 8 fragments which serve as the main source of attributes to a character. Additional attributes can be gained from Soul Shields when equipping multiple fragments of a same set. These bonus attributes are gained when a set of 3, 5 or 8 fragments is equipped. One can gain bonus attributes from different sets in this way. Soul Shield fragments can be upgraded by using Soul Shield Primers.

Soul Shields, like items, range in quality from Normal to Legendary.


In addition to their active Soul Shield, players can carry an alternate Soul Shield to switch to for different occasions (such as one for PvP, one for PvE). Soul Shields can be switched at any time outside of combat either directly through the Inventory window by clicking the cycling arrows button in the top corner, or through the Soul Shield tab at the right of the Inventory window by clicking Equip.

For certain Soul Shields (particularly high-level ones), multiple instances of the same fragment may have different attributes. In these cases, a fragment's attributes are decided randomly when it is unsealed. Most of the time a fragment will have the same type of attributes but the values will change each time a fragment is unsealed.

Soul Shield fragments are numbered clockwise, with the first fragment being at the top.


Each Soul Shield fragment belongs to a set. Collecting and equipping fragments from a same set will unlock additional bonus attributes.

Collect and equip three fragments in a set to unlock the first bonus, collect five to unlock the second, and collect all eight to unlock the final one. This leaves room to mix and match sets if the player feels the second or third bonuses are not helpful. For instance, you may collect five fragments of one set and three of another.

SS example stats.png

When you adquire a soulshield it will be sometimes sealed.

You will require an Unsealing charm to unseal it. At the moment when it is unsealed, the base statistics/attribute would be calculated for the soul shield, there is a base stat/attribute and a chance to obtain certain sub stats/sub attribute for the shield. For Heroic soul shields, it typically rolls between 1-3 primary stat values, and 1-3 values from a selection of secondary stats. For Legendary PvP soul shields it rolls between 1-2 primary stat values, and 1-3 values from a selection of secondary stats.[1]

Example: Yehoran Soul Shield 1

Base Stat: HP Posible Substats: Critical, Defense, Evasion, Block

So in this picture we can see that the shield got Evasion and Defense as substats/subattribute. You can unseal different soul shields until you obtain the roll with the stats/attribute that you need/wish.

Also the base stats can be increased a its full potential or maximum value, as can be seen in this picture.

Base soulshield stats can be increased by reinforcing it.

Reinforcin or fusing your soul shield


Reinforce a soulshield fragment using another soul shield fragment of the same name and also with the same number. Reinforcing raises the base stat or attributes that both soulshields share in common, sometimes even if you have the same soulshield fragment no increase can be obtained.

Reinforcing raises the soulshield base stats or attributes up to his maximum stat number. Up to 100%.

Reinforcing also works only (at this moment) in the higher levels of the soulshields, at this time (April 2018) only on legendary soul shields.

Other materials are needed usually Fusion Powder and Soulstone Crystals.


Unlike weapon or accessory upgrades, Soul Shield fusing does not level up the item. The sacrificed Soul Shield Primer will increase a single attribute of the Soul Shield being fused to. You can only use one Primers per Soul Shield. Attributes gained from fusion appear in green next to the base attributes.

All soul shield Primers are represented by a soul shield fragment 8, so it can be applied to any fragment. There's no need to match the fragment number.


  • Soul Shield Primers
