Shield Me Bruh! by Vapok

This is a lightweight Quality of Life module for auto-equipping a shield when a one-handed weapon is equipped.

To set the desired shield, open the Player Inventory and middle-click the desired shield to auto-equip. Press the middle-mouse button again to deselect the shield.

This will place the Shield Me Bruh! icon on the shield to let you know that it's the shield configured. The shield will remain selected, even after log out, unless you deselect it.

From there, simply equip a one-handed weapon. Need a shield? Shield Me Bruh! will take care of it!
