I’d pick owlite, it’s important later on like in Firestorm Citadel, and plate doesn’t protect against anything besides normal (and it has no status resistances), which usually you’ll only be taking from mecha knights and trojans. Wolver wasn’t part of the question either :P

I would say plate. Volcanic plate is actually very useful in FSC. And it is much cooler, the graphics. You should really consider this.

This. From plate, you either have a choice of a Normal, or Normal/Piercing shield. In the end-game, you won’t encounter many tough enemies that deal piercing damage, but there will be plenty that deal elemental damage (Take Vanaduke, for example) I’d get both shields if you can, but go for Owlite first.

Owlite first and forget plate i say get skolver instead it offers the same protection + the dmg bonus ;D

Responding to the irrelevant “wolver shield”
1. There is no such thing as a wolver shield, it’s the Bristling Buckler alchemy line.
2. All low increase variants increase said value by 7% per level (low, medium, high, very high, “ultra”, maximum)

Go for your own preference of specialized damage shield to normal damage shield because it doesn’t matter that much.

There is quite a difference between using a shadow shield or piercing shield in elemental stratums, but people bring Barbarous Thorn Shield or Swiftstrike Buckler regardless of level due to medium increased Sword Damage and ASI (attack speed increase) high respectively.

The Volcanic plate shield is actually rather amazing, I own one without any uvs and can take two direct overhead smashes from Vana and still won’t break.

the grey owlite shield can do the same……

^ yes, the grey owlite shield can do the same. No need volcanic plate shield.

Owlite is the most common, so i guess its the best to start with.
