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

Price(0/3): Completely worthless. Any neopoint spent on this item would be a waste, so it doesn't matter if it were dirt-cheap.
Power(0/5): The amount of icons this shield defends against is way too low, wasting a slot in today's battledome when you could attack more instead.
Uniqueness(0/2): Most shields tend to defend icons in such low amounts that it's not worth it to use them over any weapon. This isn't the exception.

Overall it's just your average underpowered, useless item. Nothing worth checking out here. Because of that its final rating is 0/10. I can't give a rating of 0 however, so it gets a shameful 1 instead.

Price/Power (2/5)
Very cheap, though this does little to help the power. That being said, it does provide the largest number of icons for bulk air blockers right now.

Countermeasures (1/5)
Air is uncommon to block, but it is also very easy to avoid this shield by simply changing weapon.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
There are many other "better" options out there but they all involve sacrificing some of the air. The closest item is the Shield of the North Wind, but honestly it is likely best just to get a more far reaching item such as the Studded Leather Cuirass instead.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Part one of my latest attempt to fly.

I really want to give this weapon a 1/10, but I can't bring myself to do so. It holds a small amount of situational value.

This weapon can be found for one Neopoint. It blocks 5 Air icons. What other weapons provide 5 icons of Air defense, and cost less than a million Neopoints?

Parchment Cloak is the only one, but it comes with a 150 Intel requirement.

Then there is Earthen Scorchstone, which comes close with 4.5 icons of Air defense.

There is also Shield of the North Wind, which is another runner up with 4 icons of Air Defense.

Yooyuball Goal Net Shield can potentially block all Air icons, but it is even more horribly situational.

Air defenders are hard to find at this level; none of the options above are particularly lucrative.

In general, just overpower the opponent with cheap-but-powerful weapons like Scroll of Ultranova.
