For the Dark Souls III variant, see Silver Eagle Kite Shield (Dark Souls III).

The Silver Eagle Kite Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Medium-sized metal shield. A commonly-used, standard shield.
Has a pointed top designed for ease of use while on horseback.


Sold by Maughlin the Armorer for 1,500 souls.


It can be bought in Majula as soon as one escapes Things Betwixt, and is one of the most sturdy and resilient shields that can be easily obtained so early. Most starting classes that can wield it will benefit greatly from buying one for Forest of Fallen Giants and Heide's Tower of Flame, and doing so will unlock Maughlin's expanded selection.

However, it lacks a 100% physical damage reduction, so it tends to quickly become outclassed by Drangleic Shield, Royal Kite Shield, and, in Scholar of the First Sin, the Watchdragon Parma, among others.
