Job Trait Overview

  • Game Description: Grants bonus TP when blocking an attack with a shield.
  • TP bonus is granted when shield blocking physical attacks; no TP bonus if not shield blocked.
  • TP bonus is not granted if the wielder receives no damage from the attack.
  • Prevents spell interruption from attacks that are blocked with the shield during spell casting. Any attacks that are not blocked by the shield still have a chance to interrupt.
  • This Job Trait is always active.
  • Further Notes:
    • There are three levels of Shield Mastery, obtained at: Level 25, Level 50, and Level 75.
    • It's speculated that on shield block, one would gain 1 extra TP with Shield Mastery I, 2 TP with Shield Mastery II, and 3 TP with Shield Mastery III.
      • Another theory holds that Store TP enhances the TP bonus.
