The Eagle Shield is a greatshield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Greatshield with an eagle design. Lightest and easiest greatshield to handle.
Greatshields are very stable, and deflect attacks. But one cannot parry, and instead bashes with the shield.


The Eagle Shield is found on a buttress close to the upper area bonfire in Blighttown.


Both the lightest and least strength reliant greatshield in the game. An extremely versatile shield, it combines heavy deflection, and very high stability, with low stat requirements and weight that makes it usable even by non-strength focused characters. This shield has a standard bash attack and the crystal durability is 30.

Resistance DefenseEdit

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