Acquired from Benhart of Jugo by summoning him, and ensuring that he survive three boss encounters. The shield can, then be obtained from him in his final resting place, the Memory of Orro. Alternatively, it can be acquired from Melentia by killing Benhart, at any time, for 5,000 souls, along with the rest of Benhart's gear.
Benhart's Parma has a very high resistance to Magic, second only to the Magic Shield. Its other elemental defenses and resistances are average, as well as its stability and durability. However, the strength requirement is fairly low, making it a suitable choice for players without much strength or vitality.
Overall, it is a relatively-balanced, lightweight shield, but some other small shields will still outperform it in specific scenarios.
- The crest found on the front of the shield resembles the iconic stag found on a variety of gear that hails from Mirrah, notably Benhart's own armor set and Creighton's beloved chainmail.
