Gameplay Notes

Shields

This section is about the Paladin gear. For the status effect, see Shield.

The Paladin class uses a shield in battle. Shields grant a minor stat boost to the Main Character depending on the shield equipped.

  • You can equip a shield by tapping on the Shield button on the Party screen while in the Paladin class.
  • Only one type of shield can be equipped at a time.
  • If more than one of the same type of shield is obtained as loot, the excess shield will be automatically sold for rupies.
  • Shields can still be obtained as loot even if Paladin has not yet been unlocked.

Best Offense Is A Good Defense

  • The cap to damage taken is applied after all other forms of damage reduction. For example, consider a special attack which deals 9,999,999 Dark damage to all allies:
    • If Status Dmg Cut 95.png95% DMG CutTaking 95% less DMG
      Damage Cut reducing damage taken for all elements.
      Warning! Does not work for Plain Damage!
      is in effect, the damage is reduced to 49,999 before being reduced to 10,000 by this support skill.
    • If Status Shield.pngShieldNext ATK received will be ineffective for a fixed amount
      is in effect, the special attack first subtracts the damage absorbed by the shield, before being reduced to 10,000.
    • Additionally, if a form of Status Substitute.pngSubstitute (All-Ally)Receives all attacks in place of allies
      (Includes all-ally attacks)
      is in effect, the damage is first reduced to 10,000, then the character takes all four attacks for a total of 40000.
  • Boost to attack specs based on number of shields obtained.[1]
    • 5% ATKNormal modifier Up (Max: 80%Current confirmed maximum)
    • 10% DA Up (Max: 100%Current confirmed maximum)
    • 5% TA Up (Max: 80%Current confirmed maximum)
  • The current maximum number of shields is 16.

Assessment

Elemental Phalanx grants the party the equivalent of 80% DMG Cut, except it ignores the Status DMG Cut Nullified.pngDMG Cut NullifiedNullifies 'all elemental DMG cut' (Can't be removed)
effect common in many high-level raids while also being slightly more effective against off-element damage sources.

Notable Main Weapons

As Paladin is the successor class to Class 110301 sw square.jpg Spartan, the same weapons Spartan finds useful will also be useful for Paladin - with some modification and additions.

With enough shields acquired, multiattacks become guaranteed for Paladin. Weapons that trigger effects on multiattacks will activate every turn.
