Standard shields block physical damage and aren't as effective against Magic attacks. The defense amount is subtracted in full from incoming Melee and Ranged damage. Only half of a regular shield's defense amount applies to incoming Magic damage (rounded down).

If a shield triggers while a previous saved defense amount exists, the previous amount is lost.

“It would hurt less if you didn’t get hit! Maybe you should stand behind a wall. But since you can’t do that, use this shield instead. Hide behind it!” - Legion Trainer
