Price/Power (0/5)
I don't feel 9 icons is enough in this modern battledome; while it isn't horrible it does mean that many defensive weapons like this one have lost a little luster.

Countermeasures (2/5)
I mean, it could entirely counter a Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer - but fewer people would be using this given the larger number of items out there tipping upwards of 12 icons.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Unfortunately, the hidden tower level defensive weapons are likely the best option with things like the Hubrid Nox Memorial Shield offering percentage blocks. Besides that, there is a whole level of 12 icon blockers like the Solar Flare Shield which offer a lot more reason to use them.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Please look up the meaning of "ornate" before deciding if you would like to use this weapon- this weapon is not made for fighting anymore.

Price/power (2/5): At this price you should be getting around 12 icons of defense, not 9. Shiny Shoal Shell Shield, Leaf Shield, and Studded Leather Cuirass are good examples.

Tactical (3/5): Shiny Shoal Shell Shield covers what this does, and more. However, this does kill Stone Club, Makeshift Ships Hammer, and Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer.

Bonus (0/1): This is a relic from another age.

Closing remarks: This is really an overpriced beginner's item. Don't bother.

Final score: 5/10
