Get a shield nub! ok but wich one ?

I'm planning to loom a shield but i cant choose between all of them.
As ex archer i always had in mind than circle shape shields are the best, because to me they have better cover to block projectile from sides but i'm maybe wrong.
So for you what is the best shield ?

Try out few first, heavy round shield, elite cav shield are a good choice. Maybe new pavise shields, but I didn't try them myself. Kite shields will get you shot from sides very often.

Don't get the buckler. It's awful, even with 10 shield skill. You'll barely catch any arrows with it.

You're correct about the round shields, they're usually best for soaking up arrows. Elite cav shield and (heavy) round shield are top picks.
I voted Gurnisson cause of his fucking bendy pike, I swear noone can roflcopter stab like he can.

if you're planning to do cav: since I got myself some shield skill, elite cavalry shield has paid off so well

I like this one. Been using it a little while now and got it +3'd.

No difficulty requirement so doesn't affect my build. Not a great shield tbh but just having it acts as a deterrent for ranged.

I went for one shield skill and my shield was 100% useless against any ranged :) They just shoot over it. U play on EU strat battles james. U should know that.

Try the rondache. It's nice.

thx for all answers guys
I'm surpised nobody told me huscarl shield
I forgot to mention i already have a plain cavalry shield wich is nice but i found it a bit weak against too many hits, i want something a bit more solid.
Because i change very often of build i want something polyvalent, i generaly go for 4 to 6 shield skill on my builds, i feel like with lower shield skill it let projectile go through or hit legs.
for my next build i'm planing to make an hybrid 1h/hoplite build

@Dalhi : i found elite cavalry shield a bit weak but havent tried yet the  heavy round shield and about pavise their red color make you spoted from far by ranged... but i will maybe try them too

@austrian : clearly no ! =p

@Gurnisson: yeah i'm tempted by elite cav shield even if i found him a bit weak, but have to try the heavy round shield

@blackbird: around 4 and 6 shield skill

@ikarus : for cav i already have my plain cav shield wich is enough to me, so i want something for on foot class

@njames89 : yeah like i said i have one already but i want something more solid, and with 0 shield skill i still get shot a lot but with 5 skill in shield its fine but not solid enough to my taste

@Bob_Ross : thx for proposing the rondache i completly forgot about this one i will test it

atm i hesitate between heavy round shield, elite cav shield, rondache, huscarl round shield

so one more question guys what you think about huscarl shield? why u dont choose it ? too slow too heavy i guess ?

I haven't played with huscarl's since the speed buff, but it felt too slow before. Maybe the 3 speed is enough to make it great, but I'm not sure. If you like playing in the front lines and target switch, I'd use a faster shield, but for a defensive setup in mass melee it could be pretty beastly.

well atm i'm doing well with the rondache but im afraid to loom it because of his size dont reflect reality in game and i'm scary than devs nerf it in futur...

@man of steel : yeah already tried it but the side cover is shit imo
@ gurni : yeah same havent tried huscarl with new speed but i doubt it change something... well i still need to try
