Heavy shield that defends against elemental attacks.
Force Shield (フォースシールド, Fōsu Shīrudo?), also known as Mythical Bangle, is a recurring shield in the Final Fantasy series. It is often one of the more powerful shields. While it usually has mediocre Defense, it usually makes up for it with its abilities, which usually deal with halving elemental damage. Oftentimes, it is an universal shield that anyone can equip.
Appearing only in the Advance remake, the Force Shield is the reward for defeating Omega Mk.II in the Sealed Temple. It grants +5 Weight, -5 Speed, and a mere +15 Defense and +10 Evasion, but halves the damage of all elemental attacks.
Shield that defends only against magic.
Force Shield is a universal shield that can be equipped by everyone except Umaro. While it provides no boost to physical stats, it provides +70 Magic Defense and +50% Magic Evasion. Additionally, it halves damage from Fire, Ice, Lightning, Earth, Wind, and Water-elemental attacks, grants Auto-Shell to the user, and teaches Shell at a x5 rate. It can be found in Kefka's Tower, stolen from Glutturn, winning it from Ice Dragon, or won in the Dragon's Neck Coliseum by betting the Paladin Shield.
Force Shield provides 10 points to Defense and 30 points to Evade, as well as 2 points to Speed, 1 point to Wisdom, 2 points to Intelligence, and reduces all elemental damage.
Shields usually protect their wielder from physical attacks, but the Force Shield shows its power in shielding its wielder from magic attacks. This shield is particularly useful for units weak to long range magic attacks, since it has the unique ability to weaken magic. However, they are unable to be reproduced, having been seemingly made using Farplane technology, so one can only hope to find one laying around.
