Greatshields are a type of shield in Dark Souls.

OverviewEdit

Greatshields differ from their lighter counterparts, predominantly in that they trade the ability to parry for a shield bash. Shield bashes are good for stunning enemies and still partially block attacks, making them good against relentless hordes of enemies. However, their lack of parrying ability makes them a poor choice for PvP. They can be highly effective against bosses, most of which hit hard and are impossible to parry.

Greatshields usually come with better defensive values and stability than small and medium shields, but at the cost of greater weight. They also all have heavy deflection.
