Final Fantasy XEdit

X Kimahri Ronso, Lulu, Tidus, and Yuna's equipment acquire the Aegis moniker when customized with all four Elemental-proof abilities.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

XI The Aegis is the Relic Shield of the Paladin job, available only to level 75 Paladins after having completed an immensely lengthy and expensive quest (often taking months of time, hundreds of millions of gil, and the full assistance of an entire Linkshell community to obtain difficult Dynamis drop items). The Aegis is by-and-large the greatest shield available, and as such is also, by a great margin, the most frequently upgraded Relic Weapon as well.

The main appeal being that it reduces all Magic Damage incurred by the user by 25%, adds 200 base Damage to the Shield Bash job Ability, and has a 75% chance of blocking a physical attack, which mitigates that damage by 75%. The Aegis is one of the less-expensive Relic Weapons to upgrade, and as such, due to its profound functionality, is often an upgrade sponsored by a Linkshell group to an elected, deserved member, and not a private job as most of the offensive weapons are.

So many exist now that it has become unusual to see competitive endgame Linkshells performing without at least one member wielding an Aegis. Almost all legitimate attempts made on both the Pandemonium Warden and Absolute Virtue are generally not considered serious unless an item like this plays a role somehow in magical damage mitigation.

XII Aegis Shield is a high-ranking shield that can be equipped after obtaining the Shields 5 license. It provides +13 Evasion and +50 Magick Evasion and can be purchased from Balfonheim Port for 9,600 gil.

EtymologyEdit

The Aegis is the shield wielded by Athena in Greek mythology. It is often interpreted as a shield made of animal hide, often featuring the head of Medusa or another Gorgon. In some depictions the Aegis actually belongs to Zeus, in which it may be his breastplate rather than a shield, and Zeus would lend it to various gods in deeds they need his aid in. However in popular culture the Aegis is more commonly associated with Athena.
