Dragon Quest Wiki

The goddess shield is a shield item featured in the Dragon Quest series. It is a silver and gold shield depicting the image of the Goddess. It is capable of cutting elemental damage by half.


Dragon Quest VII 3DS[]

Appearing in the 3DS remake, the shield increases defense by +55, style by +17, and cuts all elemental damage (save zap) by 30. Maribel and Aishe can equip it, giving them an excellent -60 elemental combo when used with the Princess Robe.

Dragon Quest VIII[]

The Goddess shield offers a defense bonus of +55, and cuts elemental damage in half. It can be equipped by Jessica and Angelo, as well as Red in the 3DS version.

The only way to find a Goddess shield, is to purify a cursed Thanatos' shield thanks to Alchemy:

Recipe: Thanatos' shield + Saint's ashes

It can be sold for 47500 Gold, but this is not advisable as, originally, only one Thanatos' shield could be found, and therefore, only one Goddess shield was available; however in the 3DS version, it has become more available, as the Thanatos' shield can now not only be found in a second chest at Memories Lane, but it can now also be dropped by Hell's gatekeepers.

Furthermore, the Goddesss shield can now be used as an ingredient for creating the Big bad boss shield, an upgraded version of the original Big boss shield.
