I leveling my THM right now and i thought i will buy a shield to help improve my stats. No stats was rising except magic accuracy+3.I tried to check my stats when i was using my shield but it remains the same.Why is it so? Shouldnt my stats like Def. etc raise?

This would have been more of a question for the gladiator forum, but...

Shield stats only accumulate to your regular stats, while "Guard" is active.

shield stats are only active during abilities like guard, aegis boon, and outmanuever, but also the stats for shields work differently than stats for other armor. The defense stat isn't the same as defense on armor. so if you have a defense of 250 and a shield defense of 30 with guard up you still only have a defense of 250 but you now also can mitigate up to 30 points of damage when you block.
