Vlor beat Szabo to an announcement!

If the shield is cool enough, I just might have to pick this one up despite ignoring all the other stylish shields....

I would so love to see this in XI, even if it was just a level 1 shield with no stats.

Thank you SE for once again forgetting the world is larger than just America and Canada.


I recall there being an L in the english alphabet. Btw, Square Enix is a Japanese company, so I'm pretty sure they know the world is bigger than America and Canada.

Not asking for anyone to put their designs up yet or anything, but just wondering how everyone's doing so far with their shields.

I submitted my design already. It was an idea I've had in mind for a while now, so it didn't really take that long to paint in Photoshop. I'm happy to share my design with the community once I find out i didn't win^^

I gave up on mine so I'll just describe what I wanted to do:

Gilded edges, that gilding would then be laid in three paths to split the shield's face into a left, right and bottom panels. In each panel would be a national flag, upper left Sandy, upper right Windy, bottom Bastok (representative of their placement on the map). In the center would be a large prismatic crystal at the center, itself wrapped in gilding.

Shield would either be called Nations United, or Hero Renowned. Rewarded after completion of all three nations, RotZ and CoP.

Same here. I wanted to do a shield version of the old Rabbit wand, which would both increase resistance again and provide a power boost to the element of each day. I wanted it to look like it was made out of black opal. I couldn't get the effect I wanted in paint shop pro... oh well.

I guess since the entry period is over, it can't hurt to post my design. I've already seen someone on AH site post almost the exact same design in silver and blue, lol, so I guess it's a pretty obvious idea:
