    Shell Talismans

    Are Shell Talismans worth keeping? The description on the equip screen simply states that the wearer receives a 'damage reduction shield for 1 turn at the start of battle'. The in-battle screen shows it's a reduction of all damage by 50% for one turn. Is this worth using?

    I have limited space for talismans and I'm also a minimalist when it comes to talismans. That's to say I'd rather wait to find the higher tier talismans than have ordinary, run-of-the-mill, common talismans. Are Shell Talismans considered rare or useful in any way to anyone? 50% of all damage seems ok but are there specific characters that benefit more from this? Other shields seem better on paper.

    Thanks in advance for any info!

    I personally think they are. For some characters a little damage reduction for only 2 talisman slots is enough to keep the character alive through the first turn if you don't win the coin toss.

    They're also sometimes a good pair with Destiny talismans. Allows the Destiny talis to build up effects without taking quite so much damage at the start.

    I tend to use them quite a bit - maybe not in PvP but in guantlet. For a 2 slot talisman I feel it helps quite a bit. See them as medium rare (BNW mid to high levels).

    I use them mostly with 4 set talismans. I like the HP boost and if I can survive a round that is usually all I need to make my attack and gain the upper hand.

    Generally speaking, I prefer Guard talismans over Shell talismans when it comes to the green ones. However, being a 2-set, they fit in sometimes when Guard doesn't. A pair of Immunity, a pair of Shell, and a pair of something else is a reasonable package.
