A very unusual shield, the Pierce Shield is actually oriented towards use by offensively-minded players.
While it has very low wielding requirements and lacks 100% physical block, it actually possesses very high stability, even rivaling powerhouses like the Lothric Knight Shield when fully upgraded. This alone makes it a noteworthy defensive shield for builds that invest little to nothing in Strength, particularly dedicated casters.
However, this shield is in fact designed to be used offensively by builds that do invest in physical stats. Its skill allows it to take advantage of its high stability to skewer incoming foes with the spike in the middle of the shield. In particular, its Thrust damage allows it to take advantage of the Leo Ring, protecting the wielder while inflicting powerful counter damage against foes that try to attack into the shield.
Reinforced with Titanite.
