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

In-Game Description

Heavy shield carried by the Silver Knights who served the old royal family. A flowing canal is chiseled deeply into its face.
The Silver Knights stayed behind to protect the humble manor and ruined cathedral. Though their goddess has long since left, her blessing upon her knights' shields remains.
Skill: Parry
Repel an attack at the right time to follow up with a critical hit. Works while equipped in either hand.


Dropped by Silver Knights.


A well-balanced medium shield, the Silver Knight Shield provides reliable defense in most situations.

It possesses 100% defense against physical damage, and a respectable array of elemental absorption values. It has good base stability that scales well with upgrades, allowing it to reliably block most attacks with little stamina loss. And to round everything out it possesses the Parry skill, allowing players to turn the tables on enemies and inflict ripostes to quickly defeat them.

Unfortunately, it also loses out in many ways against the Lothric Knight Shield, which on top of being lighter and having higher stability also specializes in defending against Lightning damage. The only true advantage that the Silver Knight Shield has is that it requires less Strength to wield, making it more ideal on builds that attempt to limit their amount of Strength investment in favor of other stats.
