Diverse Collection Of Ancient Shields

Spartan Shields introduces a whole new arsenal of shields made for Minecraft. It is best used with the mod, Spartan Weaponry, a weapon mod from the same author. Most of these shields can be made from vanilla materials.

Get Ready For War With Spartan Shields

using shields

Each type of shield from this mod has a different protection level that helps with combat in certain situations. You can also attack with the shield, using it to bash your foes. To do this, block by holding right-click, then follow by pressing a left-click. Use this as an alternative way to attack using the shield to fend off enemies!

How To Enchant Your Shields

enchantment table

To add an enchantment to your Spartan shields, you can use the same method for enchanting vanilla items. You can do this by placing the item on an enchantment table and then choosing the enchantment to be added.

How To Enchant Items

You Can Also Use Anvils


Also, you can enchant your Spartan shields by using an anvil. Do this by interacting with an anvil first then combine your shield and an enchantment book.

Enchantments Available

Vanilla Enchantments:

UnbreakingGives a chance for an item to avoid durability reduction when used.
KnockbackIncreases the pushback distance when using the Shield.

New Enchantments

Enchantment (Max Level)Description
(Level 3)
Blocking now has a chance to inflict damage to any mob that attacks you.
(Level 2)
Shield bashing causes the hit target to catch fire. The higher the level, the longer the duration of the fire.
(Level 4)
Blocking absorbs 50% of the damage to the shield. This enchantment boosts the damage of the Shield Bash. It also increases the max damage that the Shield can absorb by 2 points per level.

Updates & Compatibility

Update History & Changelogs

April 29, 2021

Compatibility Fixes:

  • Changed the version required for Botania from "409" to "1.16.3-409". This should fix any compatibility issues people are having with newer versions of Minecraft Forge.

Misc Tweaks:

  • Re-coloured the Bronze Shields slightly to use a new palette that I think looks better in my opinion. This will be more obvious when in the next major Spartan Weaponry release.
  • Updated Forge version to 36.1.2 on Minecraft 1.16.5


  • Fixed the attribute values for Obsidian Shields. They were supposed to give a 30% decrease in speed, rather than a 70% increase. Oops.
  • Removed the Lexica Botania extension data from this mod, at least temporarily. This is due to the Patchouli mod (that the Lexica Botania uses to make the book work) being in more widespread use amongst other mods. If Botania isn't installed but Patchouli is, then it causes serious issues including lag and crashing. If you want this back, I'll consider making a data pack that will restore this. Just keep in mind that this requires both Spartan Shields and Botania to be installed to use it correctly.


  • Reduced the console spam when attempting to stitching textures (which is used for adding the Tower Shield textures). It should only come up once when the Tower Shield textures has been added now.


  • Netherite Strengthened Shield - Can be upgraded from a Diamond Reinforced Shield in a Smithing Table by using a Netherite Ingot
  • Netherite Tower Shield - Same as above but using a Diamond Tower Shield instead
  • JEI Integration - Hang on a sec, what would we need JEI integration for? Simple. It adds a recipe category that shows how to apply banners to shields.
