The Giant Shield is a greatshield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Greatshield made of bronze and marcasite. Used by the giant sentinels of Anor Londo.
Marcasite, or white iron, is effective against non-physical damage, but as the shield is designed for the giant sentineles, its weight is unbearable.

AvailabilityEdit

The Giant Shield can be purchased from the Giant Blacksmith for 10,000 souls. It is also a rare drop from Sentinels and Royal Sentinels.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Giant Shield has heavy deflection and a standard bash attack. While it has high and well-rounded resistances to all elements, it has low stability for its weight.

Overall, the Giant Shield is more of the "Jack of All Trades" of the Greatshields: It'll work in all situations, but there will be another shield that gets the job done better.

Its 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.
