Eagle Shield
Eagle Shield

In-Game Description

Greatshield with an eagle design. Lightest
and easiest greatshield to handle.

Greatshields are very stable, and deflect
attacks. But one cannot parry, and instead
bashes with the shield.

Availability

Blighttown treasure

Can be found on a horizontal stone pillar high up in the large rickety structure above the poisonous swamp in Blighttown

Notes

  • A fully upgraded Eagle Shield boasts 84 stability. It is also substantially lighter than other Greatshields, offering attack deflection at less than half the weight of other shields in its class.
  • This shield is probably the best choice for all classes in combat where physical damage is the primary attack to defend against - unless you want to parry.

Key

Damage: The Damage stat dictates how much damage the shield does when used for bashing.

All shields have Blunt physical damage, apart from the Spiked shield's Slashing damage, but it is also more of a weapon than a shield.
Certain enemies are weak or strong against different damage types.

Damage Reduction %: The Damage Reduction % of the shield. It dictates how much damage the shield mitigates while blocking.
The Damage Reduction % stats for shields are W / X / Y / Z:
  • W is Physical Damage
  • X is Magical Damage
  • Y is Fire Damage
  • Z is Lightning Damage
Stability: Determines the amount of stamina expended to block an incoming attack. A higher stability also allows you to block stronger attacks without breaking guard and reduces the amount of stamina depleted from blocking attacks.
Durability: The durability of the shield. The effectiveness of the shield will severely deteriorate when the durability falls below 30%.
Weight: The weight of the shield. Note that carrying over 50% of your Equip Weight will reduce the speed of your rolls, while going over 100% will reduce your regular speed to walking and attempts to roll or backstep will leave you momentarily stunned.
Requirements: Determines how high various Stats must be in order to wield the shield effectively.
The requirement stats for shields are W / X / Y / Z:
  • W is the Strength required
  • X is the Dexterity required
  • Y is the Intelligence required
  • Z is the Faith required

While it is possible to use a shield with lower-than-required Strength, your character will suffer a severe penalty to stability, thus making it easier to break your character's guard.
