For the Dark Souls III variant, see Golden Falcon Shield (Dark Souls III).

The Golden Falcon Shield is a small shield in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Small shield used by Volgen Falconers. Appears like a glistening gold falcon from afar.
Domestic Volgen soldiers are infamously timid, so it is no wonder that this fierce band of mercenary falconers was hired to compensate.
The falconers are rumored to be untrusting of others, and demanding of prompt, full payment. But no wonder; they deliver much more than they are paid, and are well aware of it.



Boasting relatively-high elemental defenses for a very lightweight shield, the Golden Falcon Shield is better-suited to combating mages or other sources of elemental damage, instead of physical trauma or negative status effects. Its stability and physical damage reduction, like most small shields, is mediocre at best, but appreciable.
