Anniversary Shield "Curtain" is an inscribable gold rarity Shield obtained from Ancient Anniversary Weaponsmith in Embark Beach during the Anniversary Celebration in exchange for 5 Proofs of Legend.


Armor: 16 (Requires 9 Fast Casting)
Reduced armor in PvP.
Inscription: None
Crafted in tribute to an enduring legend.


This shield uses the same skin as an Embossed Aegis.


This item cannot be replicated, as no other shield has a Fast Casting requirement.


  • The effect "Reduced armor in PvP." is a hidden -8 AR modifier while in PvP.
Bug Bug.The -8 AR modifier belongs to the group "Bonus armor" described at Armor calculation and suffers the same bug as Cracked Armor and several armor penalty skills: The penalty has no effect when the total "Bonus armor" (penalties and bonuses combined) is +26 or more.


  • Introduced in the April 22, 2020 update.
  • This shield is likely a nod to the Chronomancer, a profession originally intended for Guild Wars as part of the Utopia canceled campaign. Though the campaign was scrapped, the Chronomancer has been introduced instead as a mesmer's elite specialization in Guild Wars 2, and allows mesmers to use shields.
