  • Additional TP from this trait will be added to the normal TP you gain from taking damage
    • ~20 base TP depending on monster delay. This base is affected by Store TP, but the TP from Shield Mastery itself is not.
  • This trait prevents spells from being interrupted by a blocked attack.
    • If a monster attacks multiple times in one round, all attacks must be blocked.
  • This trait was recently changed on the test server and no longer requires damage be taken by the unblocked attack (minus Phalanx), but you still gain the ~20 TP for the "hit" that did 0 damage.
  • Shield Mastery does not prevent or reduce the damage taken by Additional Effects that an attacking monster may have, nor does it prevent their Status Effects.
  • Equipment that gives Shield Mastery +N increases the TP gained when blocking by N*10
