Effect Reduces elemental damage

The Metal slime shield is a nigh-impenetrable buckler based on the infamous globs. Though much like how its namesake is the least impressive of its family, the shield is nevertheless a tremendous boon to any player and will make the equipping character impervious to all but the strongest attacks.
