Lore[edit | edit source]

Bearing ancient shields probably sounds like a boring job, but Ancient Shieldbearer picked it up quick and hasn’t put it down since. Though, in fairness, she probably can’t put it down. Ever. Having an eyeball shield permanently fused into your flesh is sure to make finding a comfy sleeping position difficult, but it’s a small price to pay for such eye-catching protection! C’Thun has an eye for safety equipment. And style.[6]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The shield used in the artwork likely inspired the shield Precipice of Oblivion, which was featured in the World of Warcraft expansion Battle for Azeroth.
