*After having a deep sip of his ale and reading the fabulous and highly recommended book "Shields for Dummies", Dummy finally wields his shield ... and nobody is laughing at him. For the first time. Dummy exhales and is happy!*
Seems like you nailed it. I hadn't too much time until now to test thought. Let's see if finally my wieldable torch is working. Will let you know...
... and thank you so much for your effort, hope you won't get haunted by weird wielded shields in your dreams anymore.
