The Black Iron Greatshield is a greatshield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Greatshield made of black iron, deeply feared for its association with Knightslayer Tsorig.
Black iron offers high defense, and is particularly effective at warding off fire.
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.


Obtained by defeating Knight Slayer Tsorig by the large lava pool in the Demon Ruins, beneath the Smouldering Lake.


With one hundred percent physical damage resistance, and some very respectable Fire resistance, the Black Iron Greatshield can prove to be ideal in certain areas where fire damage is abundant. Examples of such places include Smouldering Lake and surrounding areas.

While it may be lacking in Lightning resistance, the Black Iron Greatshield shines in terms of fire resistance, making it rather effective against many enemies and bosses that deal fire damage such as the Old Demon King, and the Abyss Watchers.




Reinforced with Titanite.
