Notes

Introduced in the November 2015 Version Update, the Kupo Shield adds three levels to all crafts. This item is currently only available from Mog Bonanza special events as a rank one (via redeeming a Mog Kupon AW-Kupo) or two prize. This unique item is so sought after because it allows the bearer to reach synthesis skill level 125 in a craft. Cooking was able to do this before with a Hocho, but with the shield the maximum level for cooking is now 128.

Level 125 will result in Tier Level 2 on a number of very valuable synths. These synths include high priced items such as Jinxed Gages, Jinxed Coif and Jinxed Slops. With rumors of a crafting cap limit obliteration, one could potentially have all crafts at level 125. The gil potential is unbelievable. Yet again, Square has dashed our hopes and dreams by redacting the previous statement. Characters will no longer be able to level all crafts on a single character. Regardless, the Kupo Shield will be tough to pass up for any hardcore crafter who wins the rank two mog bonanza.

With the introduction of Escutcheons, the Kupo Shield has lost its shine. It is still a very good (possibly best) choice for mules who win Rank 1 or Rank 2 in the Bonanza though.
