The Tempest shield (formerly Wind God Shield & Aeolus' shield) is a recurring shield in the Dragon Quest series. Engraved with the face of a furious god, it blows away whole swaths of enemies with the strength of Zephyrus himself.
While several guides state that the shield casts Poof on all enemies, the effect actually uses Whack's instant death element to check enemy resistance. The confusion comes from the fact that enemies blown away do not give experience or gold.
Grants +35 defence and +18 Style (with a bonus of +35 when equipped with the Sunderbolt sword), but has lost its elemental resistance from V. Can be equipped by the Hero, Carver, and Terry, and is found in the treasury of Castle Graceskull.
