The dynasty shields packs are probably the least popular crusader kings DLCs. However, they do lend both a bit of culture and functionality. First, if you know a bit of coat of arms iconography, the extra bit of information can sometimes tell you from which region or cultural group a character originates saving you a little bit of trouble. But even if not, there are tons of feudal holdings and since the game recycles shield designs, every little bit helps cut down on redundancies.

Crusader Kings II's DLC model is considerably built around various cosmetic additions, and this one is perhaps one of the most pointlessly random for any players that aren't either trained historians or have spent time researching specific dynasties throughout history. What you get are dozens of images that you can use to differentiate your dynasty from the other kingdoms on the map that are based around historical families. This offers nothing to the gameplay and does nothing to really improve upon the game. Only try this pack out if you absolutely must have the emblem of any given family and are willing to pay two dollars for that right.
