Hylian Shield vs. Mirror Shield

#1KatanaSoulPosted 1/20/2010 11:52:54 PM
Which do you prefer? Personally, I like the Hylian Shield. There doesn't seem to be much benefit to the use of the Mirror Shield unless it's needed for a puzzle or the Spirit Temple boss since it just destroys enemy projectiles instead of reflecting them like the Hylian Shield. Unless it has some other use that I'm not aware of?

The mirror shield looks neat? 8D

Thats pretty much it, Mirror shield is required once or twice but after that its just which one looks better XD
Got it memorized?

I always use biggoron sword and do not use shield much. i have mirror shield equipped because it looks awesome.

I love the combination of the goron tunic, mirror shield, and the golden gauntlets as it makes Link look really heroic and cool.

I usually leave mirror shield equipped simply because like-likes can't eat it. I don't encounter them very often, but neither do I encounter projectiles that need to be deflected so I just leave it on the option that is least likely to require me to switch my shield later.

Mirror Shield.

It is bigger and can't be eaten by Like-Likes. Also, once you get the Hookshot/Longshot or the bow, you really don't need to bounce projectiles back, anyway. Plus, it looks cooler and goes great with the Goron tunic and golden gauntlets as was stated earlier.

IMO silver gauntlets looks FAR more badass then golden. and IMO Hylian >>> mirror shield im a fan of link with his basic stuff on. either way i prefer the design of the Hylian shield to anyways. although i think the heros shield in MM looked the best :p

I prefer the Hylian one, after finishing the spirit temple. I think it looks better, more "legendary" in a way. And it bounces stuff off.
