The Shielder is one of the most basic upgrades. It may not have a high attack and speed, but it is armored and well protected against archers. It has the modifier Full Counter, which means that it deals full damage on counter attack. It is also affected by Blacksmith Upgrades, which can lift its pierce armor above that of a Spartan Hoplite. It can always be upgraded to become a Defender in order to keep pace with other units.
