Making its debut, it is learned with 6 skill points allocated into the Shield skill tree. Damage dealt is half that of a normal attack, and requires 4 MP to use. Leery louts can also use this skill against enemies in battle, as well as Gadrongo.
Acting the same as in IX, it is learned when 40 skill points are invested into the Shield skill. It cost 3 MP to use in battle.
Hendrik will learn the skill for 9 points in his shield path. It cost 3 MP to perform, just like in X, and works as it did in its previous appearances.
