The Grass Crest Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Old medium metal shield of unknown origin. The grass crest is lightly imbued with magic, which slightly speeds stamina recovery.

AvailabilityEdit

The Grass Crest Shield is found in Darkroot Basin guarded by a Black Knight.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Grass Crest Shield has medium deflection and normal parry speed. While rather unremarkable for blocking physical attacks, it has the unique and powerful effect of raising stamina regeneration speed by 50%, making it ideal for putting on one's back while two-handing a weapon. The regeneration can stack with other stamina regeneration effects, such as those of Green Blossoms or the Mask of the Child. When upgraded to crystal the shield's durability is 20.

Resistance DefenseEdit

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

Resistance Reduction
Aux Bleed 90%
Aux Poison 74%
Def res toxic 74%
Def res cur 50%

NotesEdit

  • The Grass Crest Shield is very popular due to its light weight and stamina-regenerating powers. However, there are shields that are only slightly heavier with better stability and resistance. The Grass Crest Shield, then, is best for traveling and fighting non-threatening enemies, but it's not necessarily the best shield against dangerous opponents.
  • Two-handing a weapon with this shield equipped still grants stamina regeneration.
