One can see this as an alternate with different icon to Parasol of Unfortunate Demise or a weaker hidden tower shield.

Fire is extremely hard to block in the battledome, the best someone can come up with is having a scorchio, buying a fire reflector, or Faerie Tabard which blocks 5 fire.

For this shields price, being a cove item, this shield isn't worth it. If you are having trouble fighting fire, you probably should be looking at Clawed Shield. Compared to other full blockers however, this isn't horrible.

If this were a hidden tower shield, and had 8 more icons to block, this would definitely be up there among the best shields in the game, unfortunately, it does not have this luxury. Thus, you will most likely not run into this shield, it simply isn't worth it for its price.

Counters: Dark, earth, and water. One should have at least one of the anagram swords of this element on hand. If however you are low on budget, grab a Rusty Pitchfork. If you are on an even lower budget, resort to Geraptiku Attack Leaf.

Lastly, and interestingly enough, if you use this with Dr. Sloths Personal Body Armour, you cover all icons at an alright amount.
