The platinum shield is a recurring shield in the Dragon Quest series which first appeared in Dragon Quest VI. It is typically a mid-level strength shield.


Dragon Quest VI[edit]

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

The platinum shield has a defence bonus of +25, a style bonus of +40, and reduces damage taken from Frizz, Sizz, Bang spells and fire breath by 10 points. It can be equipped by Hero, Kiefer, and Aishe. The shield can be purchased from El Ciclo in the present, Wetlock, and Providence for 3,500 gold and sold for 1,750 gold. One can be found in Estard castle's treasury, which requires the Ultimate key. If the platinum shield is equipped along with the platinum sword, platinum mail, and platinum headgear when being graded for the Best Dressed Content of the Excellence Grading Organisation, they provide an additional +30 bonus to style.

  • In the Nintendo 3DS version, the shield lost its protection against fire breath.
