  • Axe's high natural health regeneration combined with Stout Shield makes him much tougher in lane, especially after picking up another health regeneration item.
Spirit Breaker icon.png
Spirit Breaker
  • Stout Shield's damage block keeps Spirit Breaker alive when charging into enemy lines, where he often takes damage from multiple sources.
Timbersaw icon.png
Timbersaw
  • Reactive Armor icon.png Reactive Armor still triggers after Stout Shield's damage block, making Timbersaw extremely resilient in lane.

Tips[edit]

  • Useful for tanking creep attacks as a melee hero, and more effective than a Ring of Protection icon.png Ring of Protection against enemy physical attacks in the early game.

Trivia[edit]

  • In The Lab, a VR game by Valve, there are some Bendie soldiers who wield Stout Shields in the minigame Longshot, along with other Dota 2 weapons like Axe's war axe, Huskar's spear and Legion Commander's sword.
