The Sacred Shield is a shield in Skyward Sword.
Locations and Uses
The Sacred Shield can be bought from the Gear Shop in the Skyloft Bazaar for 500 Rupees after Link has defeated The Imprisoned for the first time. It is immune to fire, electric and curse attacks. Although its durability bar is shorter than the other shields, the Sacred Shield has a special ability to recover itself over a period of time. By upgrading it, Link can get the Divine Shield and later, the Goddess Shield. Cursed enemies like the Cursed Bokoblin are especially averse to the Sacred Shield, and brandishing it at them will cause them to retreat without attacking. The Hylian Shield does not contain this attribute but otherwise outclasses the Goddess Shield, and it is obtained after Link would need to face these enemies, anyway.
