Price/Power (0/5)
With shields it is basically a matter of go high or go home. Offering only six icons is not high enough no matter the price... you might as well just use a offensive item instead of trying to block a tiny array of icons.

Countermeasures (0/5)
If this spread through more then three icon types it may be worth using- if it was a 2 across the board then it would be certainly worth using. As it stands it is super weak and of little consequence.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Solar Flare Shield is likely your best option for these icon types- but even then shields are very hard to use these days due to the variety of icons you can face in the battledome.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Needs to be a cut above- is a cut below. If it actually increased your pets defense boost or something then maybe it would be worth having a look at for unqiueness reasons butttt no.

Price/power (2/5): At least it's not too expensive for what it does...

Tactical (0/5): You can block some common icons with this shield, but it's pointless because you won't be able to fully block your opponent's attack, which is probably around 9 icons.

Bonus (0/1): It's shocking to see that good defense is hard to come by, while powerful offensive weapons are dirt cheap.

Closing remarks: Get a Scamander Shield if you're a beginner. A Parasol of Unfortunate Demise is also worth looking at, though eventually you'll want to upgrade to a Shiny Shoal Shell Shield, Leaf Shield, or Studded Leather Cuirass.
