A Dragon Shield (ドラゴンシールド, Dragon Shield?) is a Shield-class piece of armor found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It visually resembles the same type of scaly shield as Golden Sun's Dragon Shield, colored green and known as (りゅうのたて, Dragon Shield?) in Japanese, written using Japanese words instead of phonetically written English ones.
The Dragon Shield increases the wearer's Defense by 42 points, and increases the wearer's Mars and Mercury resistance by 15 points each. It is bought for 7400 coins and sold for 5550.
The Dragon Shield is acquired by giving a Dragon Skin to Sunshine the Blacksmith in Yallam, where he will randomly forge it into either that or four other items. As a shield-class item, it can be equipped by Isaac, Garet, Felix, and Piers.
This Dragon Shield is effectively available the moment the player gains entrance into the Great Western Sea, because a Dragon Skin can be found in a chest in SW Atteka Islet, which can be forged into this shield at Yallam. At that point, it is a strong and practical shield for a warrior Adept to hold because of a high defense rating and some resistances, but being a forgeable item it is often missed by players because they would get one of the other items that can be forged from Dragon Skin. By the end of The Lost Age, this Dragon Shield is ultimately inferior to what should be considered the best shield in the game, the Cosmos Shield which can be forged from an Orihalcon, because it has a defense rating of 49 and increases all of an Adept's resistances by 20.
