Effect Increases defense, and typically (but not always) offers protection against fire and ice attacks.

A massive shield that reduces the damage from fire- and ice-based attacks by 10 points. (Description when selecting the Ogre shield in PS2 Dragon Quest VIII.)

The Ogre Shield is a common shield equipment item in the Dragon Quest series which debuted in Dragon Quest V. It is typically a mid-level strength shield.


Dragon Quest III[edit]

Found only in the remade versions, the Ogre shield is buyable in Rimuldar for 25000 and can be equipped by the Hero and Warriors for +60 defence. Unfortunately the shield offers no breath protection in this installment.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The shield can be found in Mt. Zugzwang, and is dropped by the Bilhaw. When equipped it will increase defence by +48, and cut breath damage by 10. It can be equipped by the Hero and Sancho

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

The shield 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 at the fashion forge.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

Found the desert region near Arcadia, the shield can be equipped by the Hero and Yangus and bolsters defence by +45 while cutting breath damage by 10.

Dragon Quest IX[edit]

The Ogre shield increases defence by +33, cuts fire and ice damage by 7%, has a block chance of 5.5%, and can be equipped by Warriors, Priests, Magi, Minstrels, Armamentalists, Sages, Paladins, and Luminaries. It cannot be purchased, and must be forge through alchemy by combining a Dark shield with four lumps of Densinium and five magical beast horns.
