Shields matter. Great shields cannot parry. Medium shields can parry and light shields can parry. Light shields have a slightly larger window for the parry as opposed to the medium shield meaning you are more likely to parry with a light shield as a medium shield. Light shields don't do 100 percent damage reduction though. So if you know you are going to parry it's best to use a light shield. If you need to block then use a medium shield with 100 percent damage reduction. If you don't want to parry at all use a great shield.
