I used the Divine Shield the most. I remember upgrading to the Goddess Shield once... I was horrified. It's no wonder cursed enemies run away from it--it's hideous. In my opinion, I'm not very fond of the way the design of the Goddess turned out, and by adding her visage onto a shield kind of ruined the poor shield's reputation in my eyes. I think the Divine Shield is very pretty, though. I really like the design of it--the emblem on it is elegant and it's a lot more refreshing than the Hylian Shield.
I don't really mind the look. I cared more about the functionalit. I would say the wooden shield is better than the iron shield since it can't be electrocuted but the iron shield is better in the volcano. Each has it's strengthes and weaknesses but th divine and Hylian shield are the best of course.
