Hits to carried left slot aren't redistributed if there's no shield equipped
Is this still an issue for OpenMW?
Shield hit location fix. If no shield is equipped, but an otherwise full set of armor, damage to the shield location would count as unarmored and progress the unarmored skill. This option redistributes hits from the shield location if no shield is equipping; it will randomly select the left pauldron or cuirass location instead.
Do not allow shield slot to take hits if there is no shield equipped
