The Shackle is an accessory that grants 1 point of defense. It is dropped by most kinds of Zombies with a 2*1/50 (2%) chance. Shackles are most useful early in the game, when defense is at a premium.

Notes[]

  • Later in the game, the player can swap in the Obsidian Skull or Cobalt Shield as a replacement, which grants a defense bonus but also Burning or knockback immunity respectively.
    • The Obsidian Shield (when both are combined) provides 2 defense and grants immunity to both Burning and knockback.

Tips[]

  • Due to Zombies spawning in large quantities during a Blood Moon, Shackles are relatively easy to acquire during the event.
  • Due to its low reforging cost, this item is useful for getting better modifiers like Arcane, Violent, Lucky, and Warding.
    • With the "Warding" modifier, 4 defense is added for a total of 5, which is nearly equivalent to Copper Armor (6 defense with set bonus).

Trivia[]

  • In real life, a Shackle is either a metal link used for linking devices together or chains used to restrain prisoners.
  • The Zombie Arm appears to have a shackle on its wrist.
