Three players have it on Garuda... so yeah if any of them is Japanese and since you got it in 2006... They probably had it first~
(I said -probably- <.<)(and that is unless if you meant 'first to get it in 06' :P)

k guys everyones retarded and i have an aegis ill share some info on it =p

pros:

1- someone said "its not all that", but it breaks the game really, really hard

2- its about on par with tatami with reduction ranging from 75~85%, and is a buckler so proc rate is also 50-90% (with 323shield skill)

3- magic reduction is the most blatant part about it. you can survive a mijin meteor from ksnm99 quite easily... good luck doing that without aegis

4- shield bash does 224-232 as long as mob has no +/- physical or blunt mods, also has a decent stun rate on shield bash though not 100%

cons:

1- NO ENMITY.. SE is *** should have +3~+5

2- SE fails not once, but twice. this shield makes defending ring and jelly ring obsolete(someone said your god if you have the ring with shield). they are obsolete due to the fact the rings and other -physical dont stack the shield

example(aegis with defending ring): 200dmg hit gets blocked to 50, now the defending reduces that 10%, so you take 45.. yay -.-



LOL wall of text but there ya go

-Archimond, 75PLD, Garuda, obtained Aegis on 6/24/06- first on server

Sorry this is a little late but to reply to the whole D. Ring thing...
You said that aegis would reduce damage by about 75%~85%, but in your example you used 75%
You continued to say that if you got hit for 200 damage, and reduced 75% from the shield block, that brings it down to 50 dmg, minus 10% from D. Ring andyou have 45 damage.
Now should D. Ring kick in before the shield block, it reduces the 200 damage to 180 damage. From there, a shield block reduces that by 75%, thus bringing us to 45 damage again.
Honestly, I don't think there is much of a difference over which one kicks in first (if there even is a difference)
Thats just my opinion though.

Well, about them emnity issue, yeah it should have some, but concider this: everytime you take damage, you loose a little hate. This shield vastly reduces damage taken, so hate lose is minimal. Whether slower hate lose is better/worse than stronger hate gain, I'll let the people with the shiny shield decide that.

And about this obsoleting the defending ring, it should. New stuff should outperform old stuff. Yes it sucks to spend years to get one piece of gear only to see it weeks later become not as great as a new piece of gear is released that is better, esp if it's easier to get. Still, D. ring will help those few times you don't block.

OK...I read most of the post and did not see anything about the currency of the last upgrade to Aegis. Anyone know the price? I see the other prices on mysterytour.com but it does not list the final ugprade price. Those of you that have this shield please let it be known. Thanks.

The reason this is such a good sheild is because its a lvl 4 shield in damage taken with shield block but its a lvl 1 with speed, soo you get the most blcoks possible and the most damage reduction possible 80% or so per hit so on 200 u get hit 40. Other then that its not all that.

The magic reduction is superb. You can actually survive when things like Kirin cast Quake. Not to mention the shield bash's damage hitting for 200.

Well, somepage lists it as a type 5 shield, but that's almost another story. What I heard from Killing Ifrit (I'll try to find the thread) was that the shield, fully upgraded, had very high damage reduction, and fired off more times then a Master Shield. They claimed it to have ~~80% damage reduction when it went off, and went off commonly. He said that not only was the Magic Damage-% good, but that, with full shield skill and boosts (like AF1), it had about a 60% damage reduction considering how many times he blocked. He said that straight tanking with a sword and shield seems somewhat viable. Any PLD's dream. =D Noted that the shield bash effect going off was ~~200 and he could normally stun exp mobs for 10-15 secs. O_o;

However, remember that nothing posted online is necessarily 100% fact. And I'd hate to feed the rumor mill. You prolly shouldn't use this post as a refrence, but merely as probable info. The post from KI did make me have Relic Shield priorities over Sword. XD


ure info is absolutly correct. someone on Odin has Aegis,and used it against Aspidochelone, and he was blocking like ****, and didnt get too much dmg. + he did like 200dmg shield bash on Aspid......so this shield is really awesome~ but since the price for bills went up to 70-80k for a single bill its just too f****** hard to get it.

Although I read many different stories on how Aegis came about, this is one of which I liked most:

"Perseus was the son of Jupiter and Danae. His granfather Acrisius, alarmed by an oracle which hadtold him that his daughter's child would be the intstrument of his death, caused the mother and the child to be shut up in a chest and set adrift on the sea. The chest floated towards Seriphus, where it was found by a fisherman who conveyed the mother and infant to Polydectes, the king of the country, by whom they were treated with kindness. When Perseus was grown up, Polydectes sent him to attemppt the conquest of Medusa, a terrible monster who had laid waste the country. She was once a beautiful maiden whose hair was her chief glory, but as she dared to vie the beauty of Minerva, the goddess deprived her of her charms and changed her beautiful ringlets into hissing serpents. She became a cruel monster of so frightful an aspect that no living thing could behold her without being turned into stone. All around the cavern where she dwelt might be seen the stony figures of men and animals which had chanced to catch a glimpse of her and had been petrified with the sight. Perseus, favoured by Minerva and Mercury, the former of whom lent him her shield and the latter his winged shoes, approached Medusa while she slept, and taking care not to look directly at her, but guided by her image reflected in the bright shield which he bore, he cut off her head and gave it to Minerva, who fixed it in the middle of her Aegis.

I just wondered so much why is there a head in the middle of the Aegis, I guess that explains it.

In Homer's Iliad Ægis was Zeus's buckler (which I assume he got from Perseus as it did have Medusa's head in the center).

"Ægis" is also the possesive form of the Norse word "ægir" which means "terror," as in Fafnir's helm Ægisjalmr (terror's helm?).

Read the whole thing on Wiki.

Close, the Aegis is not a 'buckler' is a golden sheepskin that will shield it's bearer from all harm (that kinda explains this items proc rate lol). Zeus (Jove, Jupiter) gave it to his his favorite daughter Athena (Minerva). It can be seen in any portrayal of Athena draped around her neck, it is NOT the shield she carries.
