The Earth Shield increases the wearer's defense by 31 and Venus resistance by 20. Unlike most Artifacts, the Earth Shield has an extra effect that is Usable like an item. When used, the Earth Shield emulates the Cure Well Psynergy, restoring approximately 150 HP to one Adept.
The Earth Shield is the strongest armwear that can be won at the Tolbi Springs, and is a valuable piece of equipment even if its healing effect is never used. This effect is perhaps best used as a last-ditch effort when close to defeat, or as an alternative to healing when the player's PP and healing items have been used up. However, it does not effectively replace other healing methods, as it has a chance of breaking each time it is used and then must be repaired before it can be used again.
