Banshee Flares are a type of specialty flare which bestows added target defense (TD) and bolt defensive strength (DS) to the wielder when the flare is activated, usually an amount ranging between 10 and 50. It can be applied to shields.

Added TD & bolt DS can vary depending on the merchant/festival guidelines.
