Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age Shields and Armor Locations Guide – Find All Shields, Armor, and Accessories

Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age Shields and Armor Locations

Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age Shields and Armor Locations Guide to help you find all available shields, armor, and other accessories in the game. I highly suggest equipping a shield with one-handed weapon to benefit from increased defense and other bonuses e.g. immunity against certain elements, increased evasion, status effects, etc. However, it’s important to note that equipping a shield restricts your ability to two-hand a weapon that should deal increased damage.
