Baldur Shell protects The Knight from taking any incoming enemy attacks while using FOCUS. It can only take up to four attacks before it breaks and temporarily becomes unusable.
This charm is useful against enemies and bosses that have attacks that are difficult to dodge, and it is also a life-saver in the event of being in a critical condition, however, it has a limit that a player must be mindful of when receiving more than four attacks before it completely breaks - in order to repair this charm, players must locate and rest at a bench for its effect to reactivate.
