According to eqitems this is clickable from inventory by all classes, which was tested to be NOT true on live servers. This is NOT clickable from inventory by a monk on live servers as of 2021.

This spell unlocks an AA as of TLPs.

Confirmed under the Special tab in your AA window.

Can recast for junk buff slot. But its a perma increase of 2regen and 10atk.

Is this AA given to you during when Velious is in era on TLP servers?

IM looking at the SS of the sheild above, and it says secondary, i dont see anything about it being a back item also :/ did SOE revamp the item?

Plus whats all this talk about a PoA Haste item, this is a page on a SHEILD item, maybe i just missed all the talk, but should yall put this on PoA page?

Does this stack with Torrent , Bi'h (shaman group sow) and the BST ATK buff?

Sorry for your lost Zoloph

Innuruuk doesnt want me, and Cazic Thule is Afraid ill take over

This Aura of Battle gives only 10atk? With worn effects its always 17atk for me /shrug
# Jun 27 2006 at 5:47 PM Rating: Default
its similar as how your AC goes up more than the AC value on an item dictates...
# Oct 07 2003 at 10:51 AM Rating: Decent
You more than likley get the extra 7atk from the plus 15 str that is on the sheild.

can you click it then unequip it? keeping the effect going?

RE: Effect
# Jun 06 2002 at 11:20 AM Rating: Decent
Aye you can. Effect lasts around an hour(RL) and stays up if you unequip.

Was surprised to get this last night when we went up for Golems. Draco has HUGE hp so take a lot of damage per second with you. Nukers have to be in melee range to land anything. Fun fight tho.
Does anyone know what the effect of this shield is?
# Nov 08 2001 at 1:41 PM Rating: Decent
Our sk just won the roll for one of these shields last night (dropped of Dracho). We are very curious what the actual effect "aura of battle" really is?

It's no drop you n00b
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 07 2001 at 9:56 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The sk belt Pegasus Hide belt is 41% haste with some stats...what u talking about?
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 05 2001 at 10:40 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Actually, haste wise, the PoA belts suck. Take belt of the pine for rangers, it has only 14% haste added to it with a minimum number of stats on it, i would even wear a fbss over any PoA haste belt.
#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 07 2001 at 2:06 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) There are two versions of haste belt in PoA, a dropped variant which has the same haste as a hangmans noose and a quest one which has somewhere between 40 and 41 percent haste. At least for Sk's, I assume it's the same for other hybrids and melees
Mana Dot

Not sure if it can be worn on back. But...the effect will overwrite the mana dot spells of some of the Uber Dragons which makes it a very nice thing to have for Clerics.

The effect is right clickable and seems to last about an hour.

When it was first introduced, it could be worn on the back. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case.

RE: Mana Dot
# Nov 02 2001 at 1:54 PM Rating: Decent
Yup, being able to be worn on the back was a mistake. See Absor's comment about it at:
Can this be worn on Back ?
# May 23 2001 at 11:46 PM Rating: Decent
Can it be worn on the back the pic does not say it can. So I would say no however too many people are comparing it to Lodizal's shield.
# Mar 16 2001 at 4:12 PM Rating: Decent
wow i want one of these things bad. but now what to wear CoF or this?
Belt of dwarf skulls or PoA belt
# Mar 16 2001 at 10:59 AM Rating: Default
From what I have read the belt of dwarf skulls or the PoA haste belts beat out the pretty much any cloak out there, including the CoF. If you are part of an ubber guild who can get this item, then you can certainly get one of those other 2 things as well. This item is the best back item BAR NONE. I guess my point is, that if you can't even get a PoA belt, there is no way you would ever be allowed to loot this item

Not true. There's a big difference between PoA and PoF. Besides, the belts in PoA (the good ones) aren't dropped, they're quested for and some of the quests up there involves some very bad mobs.
RE: um
# Apr 28 2002 at 10:27 AM Rating: Decent
A pickup raid prolly wont be able to handle draco anyway, and in a Guild capable of doing so, wouldnt be rolling, it's either going to be awarded or a RPP system may be used. Rolls dont help the guild out much...

don't have to CLICK on it persay,just make a hotkey for it...ask any druid with ES vambracers...they'll show ya how 8)
RE: hotkey
# Mar 16 2001 at 5:34 AM Rating: Decent
You don't have to click OR hotkey. The effect is permenant when the shield is equipped. Lucky me ;)

Just my opinion, but isnt that the best back item that the classes who can use could ever find... at least AC wise.
RE: hm..
# Mar 16 2001 at 2:23 AM Rating: Default
I'd be willing to say, YES!
Good lord...I hate it when they come up with all these new uber items. I keep having to change my underwear. This is definately sweet...and NO-DROP to keep farmers away :)
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 17 2001 at 6:07 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Actually, I have farmed it.
RE: hm..
# Nov 17 2001 at 6:02 PM Rating: Default
Depends on the race/class combo. Shield of the Stalwart seas is better for Erudite Paladin.
RE: hm..
# Oct 15 2001 at 9:29 PM Rating: Decent
Umm... Kind of hard to farm something with a spawn time of several days..
RE: hm..
# Jun 05 2001 at 7:54 PM Rating: Default
Even it wasn't no drop the Plane of Fear is hardly farmable.

Another idiotic post from Erobate.
my GOD
# Mar 15 2001 at 6:45 PM Rating: Default
i can not believe this!!!!!! btw the effect is a HP regen (8) and an atk boost of about 20 or 30 it might also have a haste component lower then fbss
# Mar 15 2001 at 6:34 PM Rating: Default
what is aura of battle?
RE: effect?
# Mar 15 2001 at 10:57 PM Rating: Default
Its a bard song. Nice effect but you have to click on it every few seconds. *shrugs* I would take this any day.
RE: effect?
# Mar 16 2001 at 5:37 AM Rating: Excellent
It isn't a bard song. Aura of Battle is 2hp/tick regen and +10ATK ;)

# Mar 30 2001 at 5:10 PM Rating: Default
You might be thinking of "Chant of Battle," Tancred.
RE: effect?
# Mar 16 2001 at 4:13 PM Rating: Decent
does this stack with Grim Aura?
RE: effect?
# Jan 04 2002 at 11:22 AM Rating: Decent
It stacks
Back too
# Mar 15 2001 at 6:08 PM Rating: Default
Looks as if it can be worn as a back item as well according to the screen shot, similar to Lozidals pimpmaster shield...just thought i'd point that out, i am sure you all noticed though =)
# Mar 29 2001 at 5:11 PM Rating: Default
As of 27th March 2001 the shield is no longer back-slot usable.


Now I own one of the best bank-slot fillers in the game :(
