Throughout Shadows of Valentia, you’ll find a wealth of held items beyond mere weapons and food. You’ll need to strategize whether or not holding such items is worth it, as each unit in your army has just a single held item slot. If you do decide on a shield, ring, or accessory item from your inventory, though, it can yield great benefits. In particular, shields can unlock new Combat Arts, just like weapons can.
Shields: Like weapons, they yield Combat Arts with use. Shields also offer a boost to your defense stat, and sometimes have an associated effect on the unit wielding them.
Rings: Rings grant a wide variety of effects to the wearer, and occasionally grant skills as well. For example, a Blessed Ring offers HP recovery each turn, while a Coral Ring yields Coral Cover.
Accessories: Accessories have more of a plot and story importance, and will be encountered throughout your journey.
