Just what it says, how much can I block with shields, only melee weapons outside of spellstrikes, Bullets?, without skills what is blockable merely through skill?

There are three levels of things that a shield will need to deal with.
Level 1
Melee attacks, Thrown weapons, Arrows. All these are able to be blocked with any shield and no skills
Level 2
Bullets. There are two ways to block these, either with a ballistic shield, in which case there is no skill needed, but that shield type will break after two days of use. The other option is a normal Riot shield and use the bullet block skill, this will stop one bullet per use
Level 3
Spells and Spellstrikes the only way to block these is with the spell block skill, which will block one spell or Spellstrike per use.

If you wanted to make a buckler that was attached to your am and did not require your hand to hold it, would you still need ambidextrous to wield it and a sword?
