I totes stole the title of this review from someone, I forgot who though.. whoopsy :D
The Hubrid Nox Memorial Shield. This is the most powerful shield in neopia that is available to the public and is buyable from the Hidden Tower. Fully blocking light, and defending 20 other icons is pretty nifty, this shield here can take down most intermediate weapons with letting a few get power through equivalent to a Sword of Domar. The holes in this shield, are obviously dark and fire. The first of which can be supplemented by obvious weapons such as the Hanso Charisma Charm, Ring of the Lost and this guys cousin: Ghostkershield. (Both from the same neighborhood ;) ) The fire however is a little harder to block, quench isn't 100% reliable so I suggest morphing to a scorchio or shoyru, or just get your hands on a fire reflector like a Clawed Shield. Otherwise, the defese of this shield is pretty much self explanatory. Its raw power is slightly greater than the other Hidden Tower shields, and strategically great.
Power to Price (6/6): You truly get what you pay for. It blocks some widely used icons and it's a full blocker. The only way this could've been more perfect is if it reflected, froze, or attacked as well. But hey, it's great the way it is. The best part is that it's readily available in the Hidden Tower.
Tactical (3/3): Blocking a full icon is always a plus, and it cripples most of the weapons you'll be seeing at this level.
Miscellaneous (1/1): It looks really cool and would make a great collector's item. :) If/when it retires from the Hidden Tower the price will SKYROCKET.
Alternatives: Faerie Tabard and Ghostkershield are the only two great shields that you'll see on this level, but I wouldn't bother with those unless you're looking for the specific protection they provide.
Upgrades: N/A. If this isn't good enough for you, I don't know what is!
Countermeasures: Fire and Darkness are the only holes in this shield. Sword of Reif would be your best option, while I would say that Portable Kiln would be your next option. A Sword of Skardsen also gets a lot of icons through this but with darkness being so easy to block nowadays, I wouldn't recommend it for general use.
