Scholar of the First SinEdit
Much like the Grass Crest Shield from Dark Souls, the Blossom Kite Shield raises stamina regeneration by about 5% (similar to the effects of the Slumbering Dragon Shield), and it stacks with the Chloranthy Ring or a Green Blossom. Like the Grass Crest Shield, it is unremarkable in terms of physical defense, but it does boast high elemental and status resistances.
When infused with Poison, this shield will block 100% of all poison damage, making it an attractive addition to any player's arsenal when traversing The Gutter and Black Gulch. Additionally, the innately-high bleed status reduction makes it a suitable choice against the Dark Stalkers found in No-man's Wharf.
- This shield's design was based on one of the winners of the Dark Souls II Shield Design Contest, the Rose Shield.
