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

In-Game Description

Orthodox metal shield engraved with a crest depicting a silver eagle.
Medium shields are the most average of shields, providing a practical balance of damage absorption, stability and weight.
Skill: Weapon Skill
Equipping this shield in the left hand allows one to perform the Skill of the right hand weapon.


Found in the High Wall of Lothric. Make way to the big room with several Large Hollow Soldiers and Starved Hounds, near the end of the level. Upon entering, follow the catwalk on the right and the shield can be looted from a chest located in a nearby corner.


With the lowest Strength requirement of any shield that can offer 100% physical damage absorption whilst blocking, this shield is useful early game for any character other than the Herald or Knight, who already have similar shields. For those with higher Strength scores, this shield becomes outclassed by other medium shields relatively quickly due to its low stability, but it is still of good use to characters with low physical stats.

Its lack of a parry compounds with its low stability to further hurt the shield's defensive utility. However, the replacement skill, Weapon Skill, can open up tactical options for many weapons while still retaining a decent shield. At the point where it is found the only other available shield with Weapon Skill is the much weaker, but lighter, Warrior's Round Shield.


Reinforced with Titanite.
