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 and later remakes, 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, won from Ice Dragon, and won in the Dragon's Neck Coliseum by betting the Paladin Shield.
It is affected by the immunity bug. If the wearer enters battle in KO or Petrify, and are revived, rather than having Auto-Shell they become immune to Shell. Having the Force Shield equipped at the beginning of the battle, and leaving it on the character for a turn before de-equipping it, gives the Shell immunity and the status won't come off.
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.
Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008) Edit
Force Shield is a level 43 shield that provides +32 Defense. It can be traded for in the shop for 13,100 gil.
Force Shield is a level 30 shield that provides +29 Defense. It can be traded for 33,870 gil in the shop.
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.
