For the Dark Souls variant, see Stone Greatshield.

The Stone Greatshield is a greatshield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A mossy stone disc. Though terribly heavy, it can serve as a shield.
The disc is a relic of ancient magic, and one can practically feel the power flowing through it.
Skill: Shield Bash
Without lowering your guard, strike the enemy with the shield to knock them back or stagger them. Works while equipped in either hand.


Dropped by Elder Ghrus in Farron Keep.


Boasting relatively high and balanced defensive stats across the board, the Stone Greatshield is a very handy defensive tool for Strength builds.

Like the Curse Ward Greatshield, the Stone Greatshield is a well-balanced greatshield that does not suffer any real weaknesses in terms of its defenses. While it does not have extreme resistances like the Cathedral Knight Greatshield against Dark or the Lothric Knight Greatshield against Magic, its lowest absorption value is still above the 70% mark, making it ideal when facing foes that may be able to deal multiple damage types, or as a jack-of-all-trades answer to varying damage types through multiple engagements. Furthermore, it possesses reasonably high Stability and an average weight among greatshields.

However, the Stone Greatshield can be difficult to acquire as it is only dropped by Elder Ghrus, which can be difficult foes to farm due to their low numbers and high health.


Reinforced with Titanite.
