Notes
This unconventional shield is tied with the T0 Wooden Shield for having the 2nd lowest MP cost of a shield (only behind Champion’s Bastion), but unlike any other shield it slows its targets instead of stunning them. While this makes it less practical in situations that call specifically for Stuns, this shield has value against foes that are immune to Stuns, allowing Knights to continue inflicting status effects onto them. Since Knight is rather slow to begin with, this shield can help tackle faster enemies by slowing them down.

Because of the situational nature of this shield, it should never be used as a primary ability.

Note that while this shield deals extremely low damage compared to other top-tier shields, its DEF bonus is the largest of any shield in the game. This can prove excellent in situations where defense is key.
