For the Dark Souls III variant, see Crimson Parma (Dark Souls III).

The Crimson Parma is a small shield in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A standard wooden parma.
The fancy name and nifty paint are surely a merchant's efforts to make this very ordinary shield more attractive.


Found in a metal chest just before the sewer area that leads to Heide's Tower of Flame.

Characteristics Edit

With the same physical defense, lighter weight, early availability and slightly higher durability than most other shields readily available so early on in the game, this can be a rather formidable shield for classes that start without a shield.
