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.

Restrictions and notes: Banshee flares appeared on pre-made shields at the 2006 Ebon Gate auction. In that instance, the shields flared to add +50 to the bearer's DS and TD when targeted with a warding spell. This bonus lasts for 10 seconds, and has a 1 in 6 chance to activate when targeted with the spell.
