The Knight Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Orthodox shield of the kind commonly used by low-ranking knights.
Medium shields are the most average of shields, providing a practical balance of damage absorption, stability and weight.
Skill: Parry
Repel an attack at the right time to follow up with a critical hit. Works while equipped in either hand.



Possessing moderate stability and 100% absorption against physical damage, the Knight Shield is a very useful shield for the beginning of the game. It has moderate defenses against most common early-game elemental damage as well.

However, it is eventually outstripped as more and better medium shield options become available.



Reinforced with Titanite.
