The Dragonrider Greatshield is a greatshield in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Greatshield of the Dragonriders, King Vendrick's royal guard.
The rank of Dragonrider was reserved for honorable warriors who helped found Drangleic. Together with the King, they crushed its former inhabitants and erected a magnificent kingdom upon their graves.


After defeating Dragonrider you'll obtain a Dragonrider Soul. Take this soul to Straid of Olaphis and trade it along with 1,500 souls for one of four weapons: the Dragonrider Greatshield, Dragonrider Twinblade, Dragonrider's Halberd or Dragonrider Bow.


With average elemental defenses and stability, the Dragonrider Greatshield draws a comparison to the Giant Shield from Dark Souls, in that both of them are roughly a "jack-of-all-trades" greatshield; it will work in all situations (save for petrification and Curse protection), but there will always be another shield or greatshield that gets the job done better.
