Ratings - Illusens Silver Shield
Price/Power (5/5)
The price has only continued to drop and given that there are no real great alternatives for earth domination that don't cost millions - that is a pretty good deal.

Countermeasures (4/5)
Earth is commonly used in most high-end battledome weapons - meaning it is fairly predictable to bring something like this along. Problem is, as high end weapons continue to diversify as JS releases more randomly OP items there are many more options than there once was. This'll still crush the best of the best though.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
I mean, you could go for a cheap Pretty Negg Shield - it doesn't block quite as much, but has the addition of an attack and additional blocking type. Alternatively you could buy the Pirate Captains Hat - which you may find fairly pricey - but has its own positives.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
For once an item made of a precious resource that isn't worth more being melted down into ingots than used in your set.

This weapon will only be rated for Regular 1P/2P use, since it doesn't have any niche or league use.

Price (3/3): At around 500k this is the cheapest option for full earth blocking.
Power (5/5): It does as it says, blocking all earth icons. Now, this might not be that good on 2P due to the lack of blocking icons along with earth, but what this excels at is blocking weapons from 1P enemies and bosses that might use mass dark (like the attack pea family).
Uniqueness (1/2): There's a few full earth blockers, but this one deserves its spot for being the easiest to get.

Overall It's a solid choice if you need to block mass earth, and the cost makes anyone able to get it as a backup. Because of that its final rating is 9/10.

Illusens Silver Shield is one of the better items that stocks in Defense Magic, but that does not exactly mean much. This shield is a full Earth blocker, a real rarity. However, Illusens Silver Shield does not have much more exciting going for it.

First of all, let's discuss Illusens Silver Shield's price. This shield typically sells for below the price of fellow Earth-blockers Pirate Captains Hat and Shield of Pion Troect. Illusens Silver Shield is a fairly rare R99, and the first-glance appeal of full Earth defense still mean that it sells for a few million. Thanks to the rarity, Illusens Silver Shield can be a pain to buy and sell.

As far as the actual effect of Illusens Silver Shield goes, it is awfully vanilla. Besides the full Earth block, the only thing this weapon offers is 3 icons of Dark defense. Illusens Silver Shield can block heavy Earth icon weapons like Sword of Thare, Attack Pea, Grapes of Wrath, Illusens Staff, Seasonal Attack Pea, and Super Attack Pea, but it will only fully block Attack Pea. This is bad news for Illusens Silver Shield; in order for Illusens Silver Shield to be a real power play, it will need to block two weapons' Earth icons. The likelihood of an opponent using two Earth weapons is low considering the fear of running into Ultra Dual Shovel or Kings Lens.

When it comes to shields with such bland defenses as Illusens Silver Shield, reflectors would be more sensible since the main benefit shields have over reflectors is the additional defensive coverage of other icon types, which Illusens Silver Shield sorely lacks.

As for other full Earth bloc...
