Kiteshields are shields worn in the shield slot. They are normally used as a melee protection and provide a good defence against all melee attack types. They can be smithed from all types of metals except for black. Kiteshields are more powerful than square shields but also more expensive. Players using Magic prefer them over square shields. Some kiteshields can be bought in Cassie's Shield Shop in Falador.
