D1 Unique Shields

From Diablo 2 Wiki

Unique Shields found in Diablo and Hellfire. There were no unique shields added in Hellfire. All of the following are found in both games.

Diablo Unique Shields

The unique shields are almost all quite worthless. It's enough to make you wonder if the D1 team intended shields not to have much in the way of magical modifiers during the development process, and then upgraded their potential magical properties late in the game design process. Too late to go back in and fix up the uniques.
