Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Ankh Shield can be obtained before defeating any Hardmode bosses, and can be a very useful accessory when one does decide to fight them.
  • The Paladin's Shield, while obtainable considerably later than the Ankh Shield, outclasses it in situations where common debuffs will not be inflicted (such as most boss battles), offering an extra 2 defense.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ankh was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that meant "life", this character is depicted in the shield.
  • Of all accessories, the Ankh Shield and the Celestial Stone offer the third most base defense, being bested only by the Paladin's Shield which has 6 base defense, and the Flesh Knuckles which has 7 base defense.
  • While the Ankh Shield protects against the eleven arguably most common debuffs, this immunity accounts for only a small selection of the potential negative effects a player can suffer.
  • The only crafted item in the build path not crafted at the Tinkerer's Workshop is the Obsidian skull, which is crafted at a furnace instead.
  • Its components sell for more than the shield does.

History[edit | edit source]
