    Aegis Shield

    Yesterday I got my relic shield and upon gettin it my friend told me it only takes about 30,000,000 gil to full upgrade the shield but he wasnt entirly sure about it... So I ask the question is it true that it only takes 30mil to upgrade the shield and if so which currency/key items/items would i need for it? And would it really cost 30m?

    it costs 16,000 currency+, about the same as everything else.

    I really want confirmation on what shield bash does with this and if you really do petrify the enemy after a shield block.

    From what Iv read and heard.
    Shield block: 60-80%
    Shield Bash: 200-280 dmg
    Dmg null when blocked: 90%

    Thats about all iv heard about the shield.... and thats hawt enough for me

    30 mill is actually pretty cheap. I would have to assume that currency is much cheaper on your server, (5mill for 100 pieces on Kujata) or that he meant it would take sponsorship of 30 dynamis runs to obtain the amount needed.

    If it takes 16,000 pieces you would need to get about 534 coins per run. I can honestly say that you would need to cut that number in half unless your ls just has much better luck than any of my shells have had. I think the most I have ever been in was around 500 but I am not that sure but I know that I have been on runs with less than 100.

    Plan on 50-60 runs assuming that 16k is the correct figure.

    It would make sense. The Ageis was armor (sometimes a shield, sometimes a brestplate) made for Athena and featured Medeusa's severed head on it.

    So it blocks 60-80% and of that percentage of blocks 90% of them do 0 damage? That is insane.

    no, supposedly it blocks 60-80% of the time, when it does block you'll take 10% damage. when it doesn't block you take full damage.

    which is still insane.

    +enmity in every slot, and that shield...it'd be tough to find a better tank, I would think (disclaimer: I'm not a tank).

    Too bad Feather doesn't deign to camp normal stuff anymore, I'd like to see it in action.

    in my honest opinion, BG should have done the shield and not the sword.

    In hindsight I'm sure they would agree, but you can't really guess how useful a relic would be before trying it out for yourself.

    Aegis Shield definitely sounds like a PLD's wet dream, as long as that extra 200+ damage on shield bash actually adds to your hate, which It should. Roughly how much gil would it cost to fully upgrade it on Bahamut?

    no, the shield is a waste on PLD/NIN.

    60-80% when shadows are down does not justify a 500M investment.

    if we would've know Excalibur's added effect wasn't full hate, we probably would've done Relic Horn. regardless, any of the 3 would've went to someone who's currently playing WoW, so it doesn't matter.

    Not really, with shield bash merits, the PLD can do 200-300+ damage with one bash every 4 minutes, which would give hate too, unlike excalibur's additional damage, which gives none.

    Personally, with aegish shield and shadow mantle, I would ditch /nin but when it works so well for you I guess there is no point.

    if we ditch /nin we would have to restructure the support group we use. and at the same time maintain that same support group for whenever that specific PLD is not online.
