For the Dark Souls variant, see East-West Shield.

The East-West Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A wooden shield decorated with the ancient symbol of the two-headed eagle. Close to a small shield in size.
Wooden shields are light, manageable, and offer relatively high magic absorption.
Skill: Parry
Repel an attack at the right time to follow up with a critical hit. Works while equipped in either hand.


Found in the Cemetery of Ash. Take the path on the left before entering Firelink Shrine; the shield can be looted from a corpse lying on the branches of a tree found before encountering the Sword Master.





Reinforced with Titanite.
