- — In-game description
The Reinforced Shield is a shield from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. It is an upgrade for the Iron Shield with increased durability, but is still vulnerable to electricity-based attacks, and will break instantly if a Thunder Keese hits it. It is obtained at the Scrap Shop in the Bazaar by using two Eldin Ores, two Monster Claws and two Ornamental Skulls to upgrade the Iron Shield. It can be further upgraded into the Fortified Shield using three Eldin Ores, three Monster Claws, three Tumbleweeds and a Blue Bird Feather.
