A couple questions:
1. If you enchant a shield as a weapon and add the parrying ability, do you get the bonus even if you don't use it as a weapon?
2. Can you use an animated shield as a weapon?
3. Would an animated shield then be able to have the parrting quality for 8,000 GP?
Parrying does not require attacking with the weapon - only to hold it.
In order to enchant it as a weapon it first needs to be enchanted with the bashing quality. If it had the bashing quality you could then follow up with parrying.
I don't think you could use an animated shield as bashing since you don't actually hold it. Likewise - since you aren't holding the animated shield - I don't think you can benefit from parrying (the same would go for a dancing parrying weapon).
I thought you could just enchant it as +1 as a weapon...
Regarldess, couldn't I just add MW shield spikes and enchant those with parrying?
so would you be able to get up plus 2 shield and defending armor spike on the same shield?
Good point. You could enchant the magic spikes or the base shield as a weapon (but it enchants separately as a weapon and a shield)
