"This extravagant shield is presented to Gerudo warriors who rise to the rank of captain. Its apparent opulence is rivaled only by its combat capabilities."
The Radiant Shield is a shield found in Breath of the Wild. It has a base Shield Guard of 35, and can be found in some Shrine of Trials in the Gerudo Desert. Its aesthetic is somewhat similar to the Gerudo Shield, however much of the shield is purple, and many more gems are affixed to the shield face.
The Radiant Shield has the lowest friction of all the shields in the game for shield surfing, with a friction reduction of 90%, meaning one can even surf on high-friction terrain like rocks while using it and making it the fastest shield in the game. However, it takes relatively high sledding damage while doing it, taking 7/10 durability points per second while surfing (the game's average for shields is 1/4 durability points/sec), making it the second most damageable shield available for surfing.
