Shield Charge is an active skill in the One Hand and Shield skill line in The Elder Scrolls Online.


Player charges to target and attacks, dealing 7 Physical Damage and stunning target for 2 seconds.


  • Unlocked at One Hand and Shield rank 20.
  • Requires 1 Skill Point.


Shielded AssaultEdit

  • Gain a damage shield after the attack.
  • Update 5: Increased the damage shield duration to 6 seconds from 4 seconds. We also fixed an issue where this ability was not refreshing the value of the damage shield when the ability was recast.[1]


  • Stuns longer based on the distance traveled.


  • Update 2: As of Update 2, all One Hand and Shield abilities now require you to have a one-handed weapon and a shield equipped in order to activate them.[2]
  • Update 7: The Shadow Cloak ability will no longer be removed by a number of abilities, including this one, when you successfully avoid their damage, though note that taking damage from this ability will still remove you from stealth.[3]
  • Update 9: Adjusted the snare applied to the enemy target at the beginning of all charge/teleport abilities (such as Shield Charge, Critical Charge, or Teleport Strike) to be a 60% snare for 750 milliseconds from a 100% snare for 500 milliseconds.[4]
