The Cathedral Knight Greatshield is a greatshield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A heavy iron shield used by the knights of the Cathedral of the Deep. The blessings of the Cathedral have granted it high dark absorption.
The face of the shield is decorated with the emblem of an old king of Lothric: a bold image of a great bird gazing skywards.
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.



The Cathedral Knight Greatshield is similar to many other greatshields, though its main advantage over other shields is the relatively high Dark defense that it has, making it more effective when blocking such attacks and spells.

The Cathedral Knight Greatshield is tied with Havel's Greatshield for the highest Dark defense while having a significantly lower weight and Strength requirement, making it better for players without as much Strength but are looking for some good Dark defense. Because this shield has such high Dark defense, it is particularly more effective against enemies that do Dark damage. Examples of such enemies are the Pontiff Knights and Elder Ghru.




Reinforced with Titanite.
