Price/Power (2/5)
9 icons is not terrible- I mean there are worse. The price isn't too bad either... The problem is in this world of icon inflation and there being many items that are just simply- better- there is little point to look at this.

Countermeasures (0/5)
It can only really touch on a few items in a major way-

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Kiko Skull Pirate Hat.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
If it was not for the Kiko Skull Pirate Hat then this item may have been more worth it... But even then this is not a very common icon combo to see in battle.

Price/power (3/5): Not too expensive for what it does, given how expensive defense can be these days.

Tactical (2/5): The real question is whether this shield blocks the right combination of icons. Few weapons attack with this particular icon combination, Scarab Ring being one of them. All in all, this shield is much more likely to block an attack partially than anything else. Physical is commonly blocked, but that's about it.

Bonus (0/1): We seem to be seeing the opposite of icon inflation when it comes to low-level shields.

Closing remarks: Save up for a Leaf Shield, Shiny Shoal Shell Shield, or Studded Leather Cuirass instead.
