Auriel's Shield

Description: Auriel's Shield, an Ebony shield said to have once belonged to the quasi-mythical Elvish deity Auriel, can make its wielder nigh invulnerable. In its resistance to fire and magick, Auriel's Shield is unsurpassed. Like many artifacts of Tamriel, the Shield has life and personality of its own, and does not feel bound to its user. A popular fable tells the tale of it abandoning one wielder in her greatest hour of need, but this is perhaps apocryphal.

Powers: Resist Fire, Shield, Spell Reflection

Comments: The Shield and Spell Reflection are very handy, especially at higher levels when melee becomes much more difficult. Resist Fire can be handy if you find a Fire Daedra at long range, but that doesn't happen too often. All in all it's a decent artifact if you can latch onto it.
