  • The protection against knockback is particularly valuable when the player is likely to come into frequent contact with enemies and environmental hazards, including but not limited to: boss fights which spawn several enemies or projectiles, Bats in the Underground, exposed lava pools, and map-generated traps in the Cavern and Dungeon.
  • The knockback immunity is also of particular use when the player is on the move. For instance, farming for Fallen Stars while equipping the Hermes Boots will allow no speed interruptions caused by damage, and traversing through a Corruption chasm will prevent deadly fall damage from possible knockback caused by contact from the commonly encountered Eater of Souls.
  • The Cobalt Shield can synergize with the Brand of the Inferno to block attacks, granting the Striking Moment buff.
  • Players should upgrade it quickly with Obsidian Skull to make the Obsidian Shield as it's relatively cheap, combines the defense of both, and grants immunity to the Burning debuff.
