I was wondering if you can increase your shielding if creatures hit you from a distance or only if they hit you up close?

That is a deceptively interesting question. Shield stop melee weapons but I cant find anything saying you must be attacked by melee attackers to increase shielding. Hopefully someone can do better than me

All kind of hits are counted for shielding skill (blood, spark or smoke puffs).

So, don't care if the hit was from close combat or distance.
