The shield Aegis in Final Fantasy XI.

The Aegis Shield, also known as the Aegis Armlet, Aegis Glove, or Aegis, is a recurring equipment piece in the Final Fantasy series. It usually protects the user from the Petrify status, or has a great bonus of Magic Defense.




Final Fantasy

The Aegis Shield protects against Stone and Poison. It is tied for the second strongest shield in the game, in terms of Defense, but is only the fourth strongest shield overall, boosting a defense of 16. It is found in the Mirage Tower.

Final Fantasy II

The Aegis Shield is the best shield in the game. It grants the user 20% Evasion and resistance to special attacks.

Final Fantasy IV

The Aegis Shield grants protection against petrification and can be purchased at the Feymarch for 20,000 gil. It grants +4 Defense, +5 Magic Defense, +34 Evasion, +4 Magic Evasion, and +3 Intelligence. It can also be found in the Lunar Ruins, as well as dropped by Catoblepas.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

The Aegis Shield returns as a non-buyable shield that provides the exact same bonuses as in Final Fantasy IV. It is also strong against attacks from Mages.

Final Fantasy VI

The Aegis Shield gives the wearer a great bonus of MBlock and Magic Defense, surpassed only by the Force Shield. It is one of the few pieces of equipment that comes in a limited quantity, as they cannot be acquired from any common enemy and cannot be won in the Colosseum.

Final Fantasy VII

Final Fantasy IX

The Aegis Glove are the second best Gauntlets in the game, in terms of Evasion. It grants a bonus of 1 to Defense, neutralizes Fire damage, and teaches Steiner the "Charge!" ability.

Final Fantasy X

Kimahri Ronso, Lulu, Tidus, and Yuna's equipment acquire the Aegis moniker when customized with all four Elemental-proof abilities.

Final Fantasy XI

The Aegis is the Relic Shield of the Paladin Job, available only to Level 75 Paladins after having completed an immensely lengthy and expensive quest (often taking months of time, hundreds of millions of Gil, and the full assistance of an entire Linkshell community to obtain difficult Dynamis drop items). The Aegis is by-and-large the greatest shield available in all of Final Fantasy XI, and as such is also, by a great margin, the most frequently upgraded Relic Weapon in the game as well. The main appeal being that it reduces all Magic Damage incurred by the user by 25%, adds 200 base Damage to the Shield Bash Job Ability, and has a 75% chance of blocking a physical attack, which mitigates that damage by 75%. The Aegis is one of the less-expensive Relic Weapons to upgrade, and as such, due to its profound functionality, is often an upgrade sponsored by a Linkshell group to an elected, deserved member, and not a private job as most of the offensive weapons are. So many exist now that it has become unusual to see competitive endgame Linkshells performing without at least one member wielding an Aegis. Almost all legitimate attempts made on both the Pandemonium Warden and Absolute Virtue are generally not considered serious unless an item like this plays a role somehow in magical damage mitigation.
