Final Fantasy Brave ExviusEdit

FFBE

One of the lighter shields. It is more efficient than the small shield, though it is used in the same manner. The buckler is most effective against single enemies in hand-to-hand combat. Due to its thin exterior, this shield is best used to push enemies until they drop their blades instead of guarding against their attacks. However, they aren't readily able to withstand the long range attacks of bows, the broad swings of large blades, or most magical attacks.
