Badgradr's Barricade is a unique medium shield in Pillars of Eternity, added in The White March - Part I expansion.

Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
This heater shield bears the black wolf of the Badgradr line, as well as the personal sigil of the shield's last bearer, Mecgrun Badgradr.

A renowned fighter, Mecgrun had a reputation for practicality and ingenuity, and in his hands his shield was as much a weapon as his blade. Mecgrun had a particular fondness for taking on spellcasters, for his shield could reflect his foes' own arrows or spells against them, and a blow to the face from the Barricade was usually enough to put an end to further casting.

While their Ungradr cousins went on to rule the Coldwater region, the Badgradrs did not survive the War of Defiance. Mecgrun himself perished in the Battle of Defiance Bay, and his shield passed into the hands of a series of noble masters before slipping from common recollection.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike other items with similar enchantments the Badgradr's Barricade has no per encounter activation limit which makes it a great choice for characters capable of reliably scoring critical hits.
  • The Thrust Of Tattered Veils triggers only on critical hits delivered with the shield (either through a bash or a full attack).
