So I finally got to the point of respecing my Lands, and I'm wondering if I should put any points in Weapon Parry, or just keep my shield. WP actually sounds pretty good...just a single point gives you 10% damage reduction, which seems like it might even be better than some extra defense from a shield.

Also, I subbed Bushi, so dual-wielding would also allow me to use Defiance.

I just don't want to be too squishy.

Thanks!

Armor means very little in EOIV. Weapon Parry does more for your bulk than a shield. Landshark is plenty bulky even if you skipped a shield and Weapon Parry. Defiance is arguably the biggest reason to take sub Bushi. There is way too much to gain by dual wielding.

This doesn't actually end up being a relevant question in the first place, since you can dual wield and use a shield at the same time. The actual decision to make is if you want a shield or an accessory. A +HP accessory is going to do more for your bulk, so the only reason to even consider a shield is if you want Power/Mind Break. Not to mention that the eventual ATK accessory will do more for you than using that slot for defense.
