The Soul Shield is a medallion of immense power that increases a character's offense and defensive abilities in the world of Blade and Soul.
System[edit | edit source]
The Soul Shield makes up a significant part of a character's total stat enhancements. It consists of eight interchangeable stat item slots. The slots can be found in a pie like structure located in the center of your characters inventory tab.
Players also have the option to create a reserve Soul Shield configuration, using Soul Shield pieces that they;ve collected to build an alternate set of stats and bonuses—especially helpful when switching between PvE and PvP gameplay.
Equipping the reserve set of Soul Shields is easy and can be performed at any time outside of combat.
Sets[edit | edit source]
Each Soul Shield piece belongs in a set.
Collecting and equipping every piece in a set will unlock further stats and even cause a physical appearance change on your character, making him or her glow. Glowing effects vary depending on the rarity of the Bo-Pae set. Each set contains roughly three stat bonuses.
Collect and equip three pieces in a set to unlock the first, collect five to unlock the second, and collect all eight to unlock the final bonus. This leaves room to mismatch sets if you feel the eight piece bonus isn't worth it. For instance, you can collect five pieces of one set and three of another.
Item grades[edit | edit source]
Refining[edit | edit source]
It is possible to increase each Soul Shield piece's stats by refining.
- main Soul Shield piece
- additional stats Soul Shield pieces (may disappear)
- Soul Shield essence (can get when breakdown items).
Of note, refining may fail: once failed, the stats will not be added but the main Soul Shield piece will not disappear. When it succeeds, the improved stats will be noted by blue color.
