The Caduceus Round Shield is a small shield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Round wooden shield crafted in Lordran. Decorated by an ancient blue Caduceus.
The giant trees in Lordran are distant offspring of the great stone archtrees. This shield inherits their properites, and the wood greatly reduces magic damage.

AvailabilityEdit

The Caduceus Round Shield can be found on a corpse in the graveyard near Firelink Shrine.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Caduceus Round Shield shares the same characteristics as the Warrior's Round Shield and the Red & White Round Shield. It has good magic defense and is quite light, however because of its 85 physical defense, it's impractical for any situation that does not call for magic defense. It has light deflection and a fast parry animation. When upgraded to crystal, the durability becomes 18.

Resistance DefenseEdit

Along with Physical and Elemental damage reduction, weapons also have hidden stats that reduce the amount of status build-up while blocking.

Resistance Reduction
Aux Bleed 75%
Aux Poison 65%
Def res toxic 65%
Def res cur 60%
