The Curse Ward Greatshield is a greatshield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Greatshield given to those who resisted the curse long ago.
Far too heavy for an ordinary person, perhaps it signifies the foolishness of resisting the curse.
And yet, those who bear the weight of this shield will not find its protections against curses wanting.
Skill: Weapon Skill
Equipped this shield in the left hand allows one to perform the Skill of the right hand weapon.


Found in the Cathedral of the Deep, on a corpse lying in the mausoleum located in front of the cathedral's front doors.


The Curse Ward Greatshield is a fairly standard greatshield when compared to others with rather balanced resistances, although falling short in terms of Lightning resistance. It is also one of the first available greatshields with one hundred percent Physical damage resistance that doesn't need to be farmed from enemies.

The best property of this shield is that it is one of the few greatshields to allow use of the main hand weapon's skill, being one of only two greatshields to have such an effect and also block one hundred percent of Physical damage, the other being the Wolf Knight's Greatshield.



  • This shield is one of the few weapons reinforced with Titanite Scales that is not transposed from a boss soul.


Reinforced with Titanite Scale.


  • This shield is aesthetically identical to the Pursuer's Greatshield from Dark Souls II.
  • The fact that this shield upgrades with Titanite Scales is a reference to the fact that the Pursuer's Greatshield in Dark Souls II is acquired from a boss soul.
