The Transgressor's Leather Shield is a small shield in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A shield enwreathed in a matte blackness. Found in the heart of the Dark Chasm.
No one knows what lies beyond the dark passages found across Drangleic, but perhaps they are better left undisturbed.


The Transgressor's Leather Shield can be purchased from Chancellor Wellager in Drangleic Castle for 8,000 souls.


The Transgressor's Leather Shield is an improved version of the Small Leather Shield, and is tied with various small shields for the highest base Stability. However, it is one of the heavier small shields, at a weight of 3.0 units, matching the weight of some medium shields.

It has decent elemental and status resistance, although its magic defence is underwhelming. It has below average Physical defence for its weight, while its Dark defence is astonishing.


  • When infused with Dark, it will negate all incoming Dark damage.
  • While the Black Armor version of this shield cannot be dropped by players, the version bought from Chancellor Wellager can be.
