I upgraded a Guardian Amulet Lvl 2 (critical: protect) to a Shield Talisman (Auto: Protect) Lvl1.

It now has 600 EXP, and turns to a Lvl 2 at 1500 EPX.

Does it have any beneficial effect to upgrade it to Lvl 2? For example better protection, or longer duration of the effect?

Off the top of my head I can't remember if the accessories have stats, as I played a long time ago. However if they do, I'd expect them to rise with the level. The effect won't change from leveling up the item, however you would get more from dismantling a higher leveled item. (Not setting this as an answer as I'm unsure). –  djsmiley2k Feb 18 '13 at 11:21

According to this http://guides.gamercorner.net/ffxiii/accessories/shield-talisman it doesn't seem to offer any additional benefits other than being able to sell it for more gil (not much more). 1,500 EXP will put it at Master level - not sure if that brings any benefits of it's own...it's been a while since I've played. According to the link above, you should be able to locate another Shield Talisman, so if you have the time and patience (and really want to know), you could carry 2 and upgrade one to Master and see if there is a difference.
