Hawkwood's Shield is a small shield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Shield that belonged to Hawkwood, a deserter from the Undead Legion.
The unique swordsmanship of the Watchers does not normally allow for the use of shields, and Hawkwood's very possession of it was telltale of his defeat.
Skill: Parry
Repel an attack at the right time to follow up with a critical hit. Works while equipped in either hand.


Found in the Cemetery of Ash, in front of a gravestone located on the right path before entering Firelink Shrine, guarded by a Starved Hound. It is the same grave where sometimes Hawkwood can be found praying.

The shield will only appear if Hawkwood is killed or after he leaves the shrine for good.





Reinforced with Titanite.
