It is an advanced and complex shield, but complex shields are not necessary better. I prefer layering different types of shields for my house shield. That way an attacker has to change their method of attack for each layer which makes them waste power and gives me time to prepare my own attack. Have you ever thought if this shield will protect you if someone simply uses a sword of power to cut a doorway into you house?
Anyone can have any form of offensive magic at their disposal, but if they are incapable of producing enough energy and power into the attack to cut through any type of shield, then it doesn’t matter what weapon they use. The point of hex shielding is to provide a more adaptive and reactive shielding base to yourself or a particular location. A single hit doesn’t work on this shield type. As a master of offensive magic, Taalon and I have run through many courses of testing for this energy complex. It takes quite a few slashes to break enough hex plates to get through a singular layer. And these attacks are coming from someone (myself) who is naturally proficient in offensive magic and has been practicing it for a decade.
Because the hex plates can rotate and switch with other plates on the radius of the shield, it provides an active counter and buffer towards incoming attacks. Normal shielding types can be dispersed in their entirety with a singular hit, because they’re much like bubbles. Doesn’t matter how many you have up. Once a basic shield takes enough damage or is hit with the right kind of magic, it will disperse. You can even collapse multiple normal shielding complexes with vibration fields or a charged attack. Hex plates do not do this, and one simply cannot disperse the entire shield no matter what they toss at it.
This is why this shielding theory has been proven in combat and testing against various forms of offensive negative magic.
I’m new to this platform as well. You may know me as Hound in discord :). Worked with many Fae over the years. It’s nice to meet another. Your wording is quite resonate, and perhaps we can converse more in the future.
