Effect Sometimes protects against breath attacks.

The Ogre shield is a recurring shield in the Dragon Quest series, which debuted in Dragon Quest V. It is typically a mid to high-level shield and occasionally offers protection to the wearer against fire and ice breath. Due to its massive size and weight, its usage is usually limited to physically powerful characters.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest III[edit]

The ogre shield has a defence bonus of +60 and can be purchased in Rimuldar for 25,000 gold and sold for 18,750 gold. It can only be equipped by the Hero and Warriors and is the second strongest shield in the game. Unfortunately, the shield offers no breath protection in this installment.

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

Appearing exclusively in smartphone versions of the game, the ogre shield has a defence bonus of +50, cuts breath damage by 10, and can only be equipped by the Hero, Ragnar, and Psaro. It was a limited-time item that could be obtained by redeeming points from the Dragon Quest Portal app that was exclusive for Japanese players and could only be acquired from the start of Chapter 5.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The ogre shield has a defence bonus of +48 and cuts breath damage by 10. It can be found in Mt. Zugzwang, can be dropped by the Bilhaw at a rate of 132, and can be sold for 9,900 gold (14,850 gold in the original Super Famicom version). The shield can be equipped by the Hero, Sancho, and various monster companions.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

The ogre shield has a base defence bonus of +48 and cuts breath damage by 10, but also reduces style by 10. It can be purchased in Despairia for 20000, and can be equipped by Carver, Amos, Lizzie, Terry, and Goowain. It features the same parameters as in V, but can be upgraded to +60 defence and +50 style at the Fashion Forge for 16,000 gold. If equipped with the Gigant armour when being ranked for the Best-Dressed Contest, they gain a +15 bonus to style.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

The ogre shield has a defence bonus of +45, cuts breath damage by 20, but also reduces style by 10. It can be equipped by Kiefer and Ruff, can only be dropped from Testudogres, and can be sold for 14,000 gold. It loses its coordination bonus with the gigant armour as Ruff is not capable of equipping both pieces of equipment.

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

The ogre shield has a defence bonus of +45, cuts breath damage by 10, and can only be equipped by Hero and Yangus. It can be found in a treasure chest in the desert region near Arcadia, which can only be accessed by flying.
