The Crest Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Shield of a nameless knight, likely a high-ranked knight of Astora.
One of the enchanted blue shields. The Crest Shield greatly reduces magic damage.

AvailabilityEdit

The Crest Shield is dropped by Oscar, Knight of Astora upon revisiting Undead Asylum. He spawns where the player first left him in the beginning of the game.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Crest Shield has medium deflection and a normal parry speed. Its 80% magic damage reduction combined with its 100% physical damage reduction and low 10 Strength requirement makes it a very good beginner shield to use.

Resistance DefenseEdit

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

Aux Poison 78%
Def res toxic 78%
Def res cur 65%
