"Light Shield" in FFX is a bit... problematic. While in the English release "Light Shield" provides status defence against Slow, the real "Light Shield" as in ライトシールド (Raito Shīrudo?) has Lightning Eater.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 20:38, April 2, 2015 (UTC)
FFX is problematic in terms of all equipment, mostly because Square changed so many things around in the English version (see Lulu's and Yuna's armor. THAT'S a pain to deal with). My suggestion is to note both on here, and note that one of them is called as such only in the Japanese version, much like what I did with Barrier Ring.
No, FFX "Light Shield" should not be placed here. First, it has different kanji than "Lustrous Shield". Second, true Light Shield's elemental affinity is with lightning which is one of three standard elements in black magic and the Lustrous Shield has affinity for either holy or dark. And three, 'fake' Light Shield provides status defence against only one status ailment while Lustrous Shield for multiple (4 at least).—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 21:05, April 2, 2015 (UTC)
Well then, I suppose it can be removed then. What should we do about other articles for FFX that are in the same boat, such as Barrier Ring?
"Barrier Ring" looks fine to me. I expanded its intro a bit, but we should add information about Record Keeper and Explorers to it to be certain. Our priority are Japanese names so we should try to stick with it whenever possible.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 21:35, April 2, 2015 (UTC)
Aye, I have nothing on either of those games outside of the kanji (which I already checked, and since RK's is just FFVI's Barrier Ring, it's fine. Explorers uses the same kanji as Barrier Ring as well, but I don't know anything about the game to add any information about it.
