Soul Shield in Blade&Soul is one of the most important factor to improve your strength in PvP/PvE. It effectively replaces armor in most other games by giving you an HP boost as well as other bonuses in accuracy,evasion,critical and so on. Your Soul Shield is made up of eight individual pieces, each angled in a specific direction around it. Throughout your adventures you’ll collect the pieces that can be used in your Soul Shield, which then increase your performance. Each piece is also a part of a set, and additional bonuses can be gained by using 3, 5, or all 8 pieces of a set—which also allows 3 and 5 piece choices of different sets to be mixed and matched.
