not a hard fight thou he's kind of a pansy

took him down with a smn, rdm, whm, and nin.
just kited him around with smn doing bllod packs and rdm nuking when possible
and just takin the single target magic, running away from the -ag's. In 30
min ish he'll run outa MP then its just fair game.

gotta take him down to the house by the tav zone on the south end to avoid links.

I bought one of these for 1.7 mil and thought it would make a huge difference combined with arcana earring against undead, but I didn't really notice that much of a difference as opposed to just using arcana earring, think I'll stick with my ice shield.

Arcana Killer is for against things like Demon's, Bomb's etc. you'll want "Undead Killer" for things like skele's ghosts, etc. maybe this is why it wasn't showing much of a difference.

Um he said Arcana Earring, which is an earring that weakens arcana killer effect and strengthens undead killer effect.

anything that says "enhances trait" or "enhances effect of" will give you that trait, except for dual wield. although the ability wont be in your trait section this shield will intimidate everything in the game including other players but only has a small chance to activate...it also makes the killer traits you already have better...if you pop NM with picaroon shield this drops 100%

The intimidation on this shield is 1% and it can be raised by getting more chr.

No, it's clearly for: Beastmaster, Dark Knight, Paladin, Samurai, Thief, Warrior

I understand it's use for Bst and Pls, but the other jobs that can use it benefit quite well from +5 str ... (aside from the 2 handed weapon weilders which wouldn't use this anyways)

Shield Block Damage Reduction
# Sep 20 2005 at 3:43 PM Rating: Good
I was using this leveling in Lufaise Meadows on Greater Birds and Rams there. Normally they'd hit me for 100 or so, but when the shield block kicked in, the damage was more like 10-20. To make things even better, i was typically getting an intimidation every fight and 3-4 shield blocks a fight with capped skill. This is my new shield of choice with sword/shield,

Edit: To really see this shield shine, get the earring that enhances the 'killer' trait of the particular mob you're fighitng. I have the Dragon Earring and the one that enhances Undead Killer. With the Undead Killer one, I own KRT bones.

Just food for thought, doesn't everybody "technically" have every enhancement in the game... your enhancement in that area is just "0". That's the impression I was under, and if you think about it.. it kinda makes sense.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.

well no u dont have every killer trait. Cause when u Bst gets lol i dont know "beast killer". Bst doesnt have that ability until a certain level is reached and then at certain levels it says "beast killer" is enhanced. So no all jobs do not have all the "killer" abilities at 0 to start.

You do NOT need to have ability to enhance something.
I use General's shield which has "Enhance Beast Killer effect". And when I fight Dhalmel in Bibiki Bay (Oh yeah, I'm a PLD) I get this "Catoblepas is intimidated by Arina's presence"... so NO, you do not need to have abilities to get this "Enhances killer effect"
It gives you ALL killer effect... with very slim chance of happening though... like 1% or so.

This shield is supposed to intimidate everything. Not just monsters that fall under the "killer" categories, and this includes other players. Case in point, a White Mage tried casting Protect on me while I was wearing this shield and was intimidated.

for all those saying you can enhance an effect you dont have, well your wrong. and a PLD will notice it the most. any killer trait is aided by charisma. Several of the PLD shield "enhance effects" although you dont naturally have that effect. I ve see aquans and beast initmidated while using the "enhances trait" shields. I've personally tested this with other shields and on diffent mobs. "ennhance killer effects" gear DOES give you the trait.

Somebody said they intimidated a Gigas and a Elemental??

There is no such thing as "Beastmen Killer" or "Elemental Killer," so... unless I'm forgetting something, I dont see how that is possible.

It cant enhance an effect that just doesnt exist o.0;;

It says it enhances it, but I think the fact that multiple non-bst people who have used it have had the effect work for them suggests that the wording is either off or that they just aren't interpreting it correctly.

mkay lets clear up the ???s
killer:
If it ENHANCES, then it will not add the effect. There is no way to enhance an effect that is not there.

sorry you are mistaken it gives you all killer traits (this has been tested) lizards pots,hares,birds,beetles u name it, all will get intimidated.
this shield sux for everyone who can wear crimson armor though , as it lowers your resistance to one of the traits, a pld using this shield will intimidate himself as much as he intimidates mobs , and so far most rmds i know who uses crimson has been intimidated by me war75 when curing or enchancing me , a godly shield for war and bst !

I can vouch for that....I tried to wake up one of our pld's and got "Altron is intimidated by PLD's presence." I was wearing Crimson hands and feet at the time. So yeah, it does add the effect to mobs and to other pc's as well.

It ADDS ALL KILLER EFFECTS.

I'm the one in the picture there. I can intimidate Weapons. I can intimidate bats. I can intimidate Gigas.

I'm a Paladin.

It adds AND enhances killer effects. (Note: It's about 1/50 hits intimidation on monsters that you have no extra killer bonuses on.)

It also enhances killer effects that you have. I'm about 1/10 intimidation on undead with the shield on, since it adds to my natural Paladin attribute.

It sells for 4,000,000 - 5,000,000 on Fairy. Main problem with using this as Paladin is the Enmity you miss from Koenig.

*EDIT* Interesting tidbit: Good friend of mine has one, and he intimidated a Fire Elemental with his. :P

Incorrect. I'm a PLD, got an Admiral's shield (enhances Aquan Killer effect) and I've intimidated Aquans. So, at least as far as the Admiral's shield goes, "enhances killer effects" adds the killer effect to you.

Well, last time I checked, a Tatami was a type of mat that covers the floor in traditional Japanese housing.. And as far as the shield itself, take into account that since it is a large type shield; that it will block more than others, and that the STR+ is nice for things as THF/WAR or WAR when using a shield for... some reason.

Actually it looks more like a washboard than a shutter to me.

This could be helpful to a PLD tank though. The killer effects would reduce dmg through intimidation and the extra str would help keep hate a bit more. With all the def and vit gear you'd have by this level I don't think this would hurt.
