Brilliance is a DLC weapon available in Dragon's Dogma.


"A magick shield in the form of an all-seeing eye. Its wielder loses all Magick Defenses but gains that amount in regular Defenses."

A shield that swaps Defense for Magick Defense. This shield can be most effective in combination with the spells Holy Grace or Demonswrath as they heal or charge faster with low defense, but only when facing physical attacks.

Magic Shield - Brilliance

The in-game description. is incorrect

ERROR!!! The in game description is backwards - the Arisen loses all their physical defence and gains the same in magick defence.

In the original Dragon's Dogma the shield can be purchased as a part of Weapon Pack: The Debilitator DLC. Received for free, and can then be re-purchased at The Black Cat. In Dark Arisen the weapon is also available for sale from the Black Cat.

Enhancement Item Locations


  • Equipping this item is not the same as removing all armor, as the Slashing and Bludgeoning resistances of any armor worn will still be effective, and reduce damage.
  • See also Brutish Wall - fighter shield that trades Magick Defense for Defense.
