Price/Power (2/5)
Very similar to the Lair Beast Tooth Shield which beats this in price and value hands down. Slightly too expensive for me to give it a better mark.

Countermeasures (3/5)
Unlike the Lair Beast Tooth Shield this item can only be used by a Lutari, so if stolen it should not be bad news. It blocks multiple different common icons, but most importantly it kills the Golden Compass.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
The Lair Beast Tooth Shield is the non-species alternative to this weapon and should be considered when you are deciding whether you wish to spend the extra np.

Other Points (No Bonus)

Final Thoughts
Interesting, a species item that isn't off the walls repulsive.

Price/power (3/5): Not atrociously expensive, given how much shields tend to cost these days.

Tactical (3/5): Blocks some common icons. Notably, it reduces the Golden Compass to a single icon of fire. However, the question is why this shield doesn't block the full 9 icons. Well, looks like you just might be able to do without a shield for now...

Bonus (1/1): At least this is remotely worthwhile. Lutaris, like most species, don't get many good weapons.

Closing remarks: If you choose not to pick this up, you can get a Leaf Shield, Studded Leather Cuirass, or Shiny Shoal Shell Shield one day. The Royal Blue Cape is the only direct upgrade to this shield, due to the near-unique combination of icons.
