The Stone Parma is a medium shield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A round, stone shield, once carried by an old knight who turned to stone himself.
It has powerful defensive properties for its size, but is extremely heavy.
Skill: Weapon Skill
Equipping this shield in the left hand allows one to perform the Skill of the right hand weapon.


Found in the Farron Keep. From the first bonfire, follow the general path on the left. The loot containing the shield is visible on the distance, right under a lone Rotten Slug lying beside a tree.


The Stone Parma is a high-stability shield that can be obtained fairly early in the game, if players can handle its high weight and Strength requirement. It boasts respectable all-round elemental defense for a medium shield, but its main strength is that it can reliably block physical damage.

Unfortunately, it is outclassed in almost every regard by the slightly heavier Black Knight Shield. The only advantage it has is that it requires less Strength; this puts the Stone Parma in the unfortunate position of only being a good shield if the wielder has 17 but not 18 Strength.


Reinforced with Titanite.
