A gold bracer with a beautiful shine that resembles the light of the sun. Equipping it automatically cast Protect on the wearer, protecting him or her against physical attacks. The manufacturing process of this ancient accessory had been a mystery for quite some time until a certain book uncovered recently revealed the process required for its development. Rumor has it that the same text had many entries concerning equipment made for fighting formidable opponents.
Shining Bracer (光の腕輪, Hikari no Udewa?), also known as Lustrous Armlet, is a recurring accessory in the series that has also been an armor. It usually deals with the Protect status, contrary to the Moon Bracer, which deals with Shell, although the two tend to interchange their abilities.
Shining Bracer provides a constant MBarrier effect that cannot be removed by Dispel and gives Spirit +10. When used in Materia Fusion it adds to the Spirit stat. It can be bought for 10,000 gil at Mythril Mine Trading, found during missions 7-5-6, 7-6-5, 9-3-5, and 9-4-6, and as a mission reward for mission 6-4-5.
Shining Bracer is an accessory that provides Auto-Protect. It can be bribed from Armet (Oversoul), Gemini (Oversoul), or Heavy Sallet, stolen from Chocobo Eater (Oversoul), or found in a treasure chest in Mushroom Rock Road (Chapter 2), and after defeating Black Elemental in Via Infinito.
