The Dragonslayer Greatshield is a unique greatshield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Melted iron shield that once formed part of the Dragonslayer Armour.
The shield offers high protection to lightning, which the Dragonslayer commanded as his own, and its Skill has faint echoes of the Dragonslayer's own fighting style.
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.


Obtained by transposing the Soul of Dragonslayer Armour with Ludleth of Courland at Firelink Shrine.


The Dragonslayer Greatshield is a sturdy and reliable greatshield with very high stability and strong all-around elemental defenses, being exceptionally good at warding off Lightning damage. However, it is also one of the heaviest greatshields in the game and has a relatively high Strength requirement, so players who wish to wield this greatshield will have to invest heavily in both Strength and Vitality.

At the stage of the game that it's available, this shield can be particularly useful against foes that deal lightning damage, such as the Nameless King; in particular, its high elemental defenses also allow it to reliably block the fire breath attacks of the King of the Storm in the first phase.
