The Sunset Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Shield of the Holy Knights of the Sunless Realms.
Engraved with a brilliant flame crest that burns brightly within the order's customary sunset colors. This design symbolizes those who both harbor and oppose the power of flame.
Skill: Parry
Repel an attack at the right time to follow up with a critical hit. Works while equipped in either hand.


Found in the Cemetery of Ash, on a gravestone located near the cliff on the right side of the area between the Iudex Gundyr bonfire and Firelink Shrine.

The shield will only appear after defeating Holy Knight Hodrick together with Sirris of the Sunless Realms in the Pit of Hollows.


A medium shield with relatively good elemental defenses and very good stability, being weak only against Dark damage. The shield's greatest strength is that it a very low Strength requirement to wield while still providing 100% physical damage block and a Parry, making it useful for builds that invest few levels into the stat.


Reinforced with Titanite.
