      It does NOT increases all shield damage reductions to 100%. Just fought Fume Knight using this sorcery + Havel's greatshield + Baneful bird ring (to block all his attack without draining stamina), and he STILL deals some damage to me when i'm blocking, even with this sorcery up (actually, i havent even noticed the difference in damage taken, only stability boost).

        Oddly enough it gives more info on the sorceries page.

        If you search for list of all sorceries on here it tells how much it adds in damage reduction in the table
