I was wondering if this is worth buying for my pld or if I should wait for something better later on?

so did we ever confirm what happens to this after you run out of charges? someone says nothing, someone says it reverts to a numinous shield, does anyone know for sure?

Jun 2005: [white]O.K. I'm here to change my opinion of the Dominus Shield. IT IS WORTH THE EXPENSE! What I thought was a rip-off has saved my bacon several times now. Either restoring enough MP for Refresh, Warp, Escape... even the all saving Cure IV when down to 20 HP!

So yeah! Worth the money! Crystan is absolutely right... equivalent to 15 Hi-Ethers; one inventory slot versus 15 plus the added +10 versus all elements! Definitely a good deal!

Wish i could edit the title of this post but alas, I cannot.[/gold]


Hi everyone!
- Per the crafting recipe, the Dominus Shield is made from by using a Numinous Shield
- The +10 versus elements for both shields is superb
- The difference between the two shields is the "Recover MP" enhancement.

I bought a Dominus Shield for 95K on Leviathan thinking "this would be great for my RDM versus Maat fight."

- I tried it out with an XP party in Ro'Maeve at lvl70 to see how it would perform.
- I thought the enhancement would restore me to full MP. To my disappointment, it did not.

1. 30 seconds initial equip time required
2. approx. 10 seconds use/cast time
3. upon use... 60 MP restored... ONLY 60 MP!
What a load of s@#$!!

I've used it twice already (very disappointed). It has 13 charges remaining. Now I have to use it 13 more times to see if this damn thing will reset to a full 15 charges... or, if it will not reset at all. >.<

[li] Save your gil and buy a Nominous Shield instead. Selling for 40-50K in Jueno AH on Leviathan (Mar 2005)
[li] Use juices/potions to restore MP instead.

SUGGESTION to SCEA & Square/Enix: For gameplay accuracy, please change the enhancement description to read "Recover Some MP"

Apr 05: Great replies folks... thanks!

Seedling: It's not a complaint, more of an expression of disappointment. 60MP restored is so low! Either full or even half MP restored would be so much better. Wouldn't you agree? { I spent 95K gil expecting more, but got less. (/sigh) oh well ;( }

P.S. I made no mention of... 15 inventory slots? As for my character update... I went from RDM63 to RDM70 in less than 2 weeks time. Sorry, didn't update. Also, at the time of my initial post... not all equipment was available to post in our online profiles. Updated now though. Thanks again for your input. Much appreciated!

P.S.2 Oh yeah! I love your quote! "Why can RDM throw the first Stone, but not the first pebble?" Full agreement here... ytf not? lmao

A little math for you...

15 x 3,000 = 45,000

Thats the average cost of 15 Hi-Ethers. This shield grants you 15 uses of 60mp restoration, making it the equivalent of a HQ Hi-Ether with the same use time. And somehow this is a bad thing? Regular Hi-Ethers only restore 50mp!

It takes up a single inventory slot, meaning you won't waste 15 slots for Hi-Ethers. Not exactly a rip off when you think about it that way, is it? Probably not ideal for Maat fights purely because of the number of times you'd need to use it to make it worthwhile. But the same goes for Hi-Ethers. How can you complain about a shield with great elemental boosts and MP restoration to boot!?

this is an excellent shield for beastmaster.

perfect for fighting NM's such as aquarius, 60 mp recovered is excellent.

send pet at aquarius, run off in the distance, recover 60 mp, blink/stoneskin or cure III, you're good to keep going.

When you use up all the charges, it will revert to a numinous shield.

Yes, 60 isn't THAT great. However, I still think this shield has its uses.

I'm trying so hard not to flame right now ...

Please try to confirm facts before posting them ...

Items that have all thir charges used so NOT change in any way ... they simply say 0/XX and are either usable for their other stats, or you can sell them to an NPC to recover some money ...

The only items in the game that change when you use them are Crystal and Memory Clusters ... which change from 1 unstackable item to 12 stacked items. ...

What are you complaining about?
60 MP is a lot, and with the stats this shield provides, it's probably equiped all the time.

Also, this thing doesn't take up 15 slots in your inventory. And it will not reset to 15 charges when used... none of the enchanted equipment will. You'll need a woodworker to do that job.

Oh, and update your equipment and job levels...
