Ice Shield Hilichurl Guards are Hilichurls equipped with an ice club and a Cryo shield. When not attacking, they raise their shield to block incoming frontal attacks regardless of whether the attack is physical or elemental. They can still be struck by arrows from afar if caught off guard, and cannot block attacks from behind. However, if its shield is already raised, it will rotate to face the player, making a sneak attack from behind quite challenging in single-player mode.
Pyro attacks, Blunt Attacks such as using Claymores, or Pyro Swirls can damage the shields effectively. As the shield is Cryo based, Anemo attacks can Swirl the Cryo status onto them and nearby enemies.
The following table describes the level scaling. Note that values may change in Co-Op, some Quests, and certain Domains (such as the Spiral Abyss). The change usually involves multiplying some of the values by a constant scale factor.
