If no signa pick this baby up

If you are a poor brd (like me) and cant get a signa or you are a taru this is a must have for BCNM 40 (Steamed Sprouts) if you go into the battle with whm subbed you will have the sheild skill and sense you do not have to be engaged to shield block. Ever mandy has 2 hits, and you will block about 2 hits per a wake up(if you are lucky) but that is still 20 points of damage you are not taking because of a slot that would normaly go emputy. Also this combos great with a shellbuster.

On diabolos if you check the sandy AH you'll see one was sold for 1,000gil. Maybe a glitch?

If it's the only one sold that way, it was likely set to a low price for fast selling and the buyer caught the seller red handed. I've done that a couple times myself (hello 3k PoisonII!). If ALL of them are that price, though, then man are they underpriced on Diabolos! Send some of those folks over to Asura, maybe we can convince them to lower the price on some of those Ancient magic scrolls....
Price on Slyph

I saw this shield in 2 seperate bazaars on Sunday for two radically different prices.

One person was selling it for 40,000gil, the other 150,000gil.

Dang, should have picked it up for 40k and put it in my safe.

as a 45brd i would like to have ANY shield in that otherwise useless spot, but neither this one or any of the lvl30 subjob shields ever seem to sell on quetz ;_; (actually, there's usually 1 of the war subjob shields, but it goes for around 200k which is out of my budget as a poor wandering bard.) im still debating on this tho.. which would actually be more helpful: Elegant Shield vs. Genin Shield (lvl30, all jobs, LE: ninja subjob) im not looking at it for LE, just the DEF: 6

This item is obtained via the BCNM40 called "Undying Promise" which is in Qu'Bia Arena.
This BCNM is a 3-member level 40 cap BCNM with a time limit of 15 minutes, for which you will need a Sky Orb.
which BCNM?

Cost me 55k on Caitsith, and I'm so proud of it ; ;

It seems to cost a lot more on other servers...

If you are a Bard, I advise you get this as it gives Chr+ in an otherwise useless slot.

just get a monster signa.. its a staff so you don't need a shield... and its +8 chr

Surely you don't farm with your signa, and if you do... why? Every Bard I know, with or without signa has this shield. It goes nicely with the Paper Knife and at least makes me feel more secure about my songs when soloing while I shelf the signa. Keep in mind though, Bard alone has no Shield skill, so you have to have a sub with shield skill for this to really be effective in blocking attacks.
btw Usually 40-45k on Alexander server.

I agree with Auronius, although my opinion is more so against Signa XD Being a Taru Bard myself, I naturally can't fare so well on my own, or to farm...so the high price of the staff is out of the question (where the shield used to be like 80k in Lakshmi, but dropped to a much cheaper 30k ^^). And with the Shield Skill point, sicne most GOOD Parties only let the Bard get hit once in a blue moon, that leaves a small window for the Bard to block damage with the shield (with or without your skills capped). If something weaker gives you aggro, you'll have a better chance to kill it with a Knife (or sword) and shield.

PLus, if you like to roleplay (even though this relates to a minimum group, so it seems -_-) get the Sword/Shield combo; how often do you read about a Bard that carries a staff? =P

It's Obtained In One Of The New BCNM 40 Battles In Palborough Mines, One Of My LS members was telling me about it
How do you get one?
# Jul 29 2004 at 6:06 AM Rating: Decent
Anyone know how this is obtained? There's about 15 in stock at the Jeuno AH, and about 4 or 5 are bought every day, so they don't seem all that rare. However, they're currently selling for 200k on Carbuncle.
Got it!

Just bought mine for 90k (Pandemonium). I would much prefer to use this and the Paper Knife in BCNM40, Signa is highly over-rated on a Taru.

I did my first 8 BCNM runs in one sitting on the weekend, and used Signa in 4, and Paper Knife (without this shield) in the other 4. There was no difference in resist rate, if anything, it was lower using the Paper Knife (just an anomaly of luck I am sure, but the point remains.) I got no full resists with either at any stage.
Where? How? I don't know . . .

OK ^^ I am a BLM40/WHM20 and well, looking for a good shield is hard because we are limited. Now, I hear about this hidden INT effect and I think wow that would go good with the rest of my gear. I always look for the best way to increase INT. NOw, thing is. I don't know where this is found, what may drop it, who may sell it. So how can I get this with out the AH?

this shield is also for blm and adds +1 int

unless +int is a hidden effect, this shield does not have it.

Smiley: yippee i bought it for 100k; right now, on Ramuh, theyre going for 150k. now i just need a Military Harp... but only one has sold, and it went for 200k. Smiley: cry ramuh, go do garrison some more so i can buy a military harp! ; ;
RE: i have this...
# Jul 19 2004 at 7:27 AM Rating: Good
Where does this come from? Crafting? Quest? BCNM? For those of you reading this in the future, no, that information was not listed at the top of the screen when I posted this. ;P

Don't worry too much about the military harp. I'm a level 50 bard, and finale has never failed so far (knocks on wood). I have read about NMs that resist finale and dispel pretty well though.

Bards get a lot of shield at lvl 30 wich all have latent effects on it.

Actually those are ALL JOBs shields from the new BCNM30 fights, their latent effects are triggered by subjob just like the earrings, belts, and capes.
