For the Dark Souls III variant, see Stone Greatshield (Dark Souls III).

The Stone Greatshield is a greatshield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Mossy round greatshield used by the guardian of the Darkroot garden, the Stone Knight.
The Stone Knight is a creation of ancient magic, and this shield is imbued with the same power, but is also extremely heavy.

Availability[]

Rare drop from Stone Knights located in Darkroot Garden.

Characteristics[]

The Stone Greatshield has a heavy deflection and a standard bash attack. Its main claim to fame is its very high magic resistance, second only to Havel's Greatshield. In addition, the shield also has among the highest levels of maximum stability; it comes in third place with Havel's Greatshield coming in second and the Greatshield of Artorias in first.

This shield is also one of the heaviest available as well, though it remains competitive due to its relatively-high elemental defenses.

Resistance Defense[]

Along with Physical and Elemental damage reduction, weapons also have hidden stats that reduce the amount of status build-up while blocking.
