The magic shield is a recurring shield in the Dragon Quest series. It is designed to guard against harmful magic and elemental damage, hence the whimsical design.
Appearing only in the remakes, the magic shield can be equipped by all vocations save for the martial artist. It boosts defence by +25, and cuts all magical damage by 25%.
The magic shield has a defence bonus of +18 and a style bonus of +21. It can be equipped by the Hero, Maribel, Sir Mervyn, and Aishe. It can be purchased in many shops for 5,000 gold and sold for 2,500. Magic shields can also be won as prizes from the Lucky Panel at the Casino.
