Final Fantasy Brave Exvius[edit | edit source]

One of the heavier shields. This shield is much broader than its lighter counterparts and made of bronze, a combination that makes it heavy. It can be used to cover the entire body against enemy attacks, but really slows down movement, making it hard to gauge the right timing to guard. The building of a warrior's defense requires not only swords and lances, but also the power to move while sporting armor, a helmet, and a shield.

Description

Bronze Shield is a Heavy Shield obtained by buying it for 300 gil at Royal Capital Grandshelt, by crafting it with 60 gil, x1 Thickened Hide, and x5 Copper Ores, and by finding it during the exploration of Fulan Pass. It provides 16 DEF.
