Greatshields are a type of shield in Dark Souls III.

Greatshields are characterized by their immense weight, high Strength requirement and extremely strong defenses. Because of their high weight, most greatshields will require the wielder to invest not only in Strength, but also Vitality, as well as Endurance to fortify their stamina pool. However, properly wielded, a greatshield will easily protect the player from most forms of damage from all but the strongest of foes. Greatshields are incapable of performing parries, and instead allow the wielder to Shield Bash their foes, or perform the Weapon Skill of their right-hand weapon without having to two-hand it.

Because of their innately high stability, upgrading a greatshield is crucial, as increasing their already strong stability will allow them to virtually ignore the stamina damage dealt by smaller weapons.
