- This ability raises the defense of all party members within the area of effect.
- Magic Shield tests have shown that the amount of damage Rampart absorbs is variable. The currently accepted formula for damage absorbed seems to be VIT*2.
- Can overwrite Defense Down status from some mobs (e.g. Dhalmel's Sonic Wave ability), but conversely can be overwritten itself by Defense Down. Can also overwrite defense bonuses such as Cocoon.
- Amount of enmity generated depends on the number of people that Rampart lands on (similar to Warcry.)
- If Valor Coronet is equipped, duration of this ability increases to 0:45.
