"This shield was made using ancient Sheikah technology. Its surface glows blue when raised in defense. Enhanced functionality allows it to deflect Guardian beams."
The Ancient Shield is a shield found in Breath of the Wild. It has a base defense of 70, and can be obtained by visiting the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab.This shield can only be obtained after Link has activated the Ancient Furnace, at which point he should speak with Cherry, the robot, to trade 1,000 Rupees, 10 Ancient Gears, 15 Ancient Springs, and 1 Giant Ancient Core for the shield. When Link is carrying this shield, only the centerpiece shows; the blue parts only show up once it is held in the hand.
