The Knight Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

This medium metal shield is elegantly carved and painted.
Although it is thought to have been used by ancient knights of nobility, its defense and capabilities are similar to other shields.

AvailabilityEdit

The Knight Shield is found on a corpse in the Undead Parish, on a side tower that overlooks Darkroot Garden. It is guarded by a Balder Knight.

A Crystal Knight Shield is dropped by a Mimic in the Duke's Archives.

CharacteristicsEdit

While it may seem to be a powerful shield, due to its positioning and looks, it is actually worse than the Hollow Soldier Shield that drops from regular enemies, with poor stability and elemental defense for its weight. Therefore, it is a common "noob trap". The Heater Shield has nearly the same stability and better elemental resistance for far less weight, and the Tower Kite Shield or Caduceus Kite Shield sold by Andre of Astora are also superior alternatives in every respect.

The Crystal version of this shield, obtained later in the game, does have decent Stability, but is still not worth upgrading, considering that a Silver Knight Shield upgraded several times will exceed a Crystal Knight Shield +5 in every way besides the Strength requirement.

The Knight Shield has medium deflection and normal parry speed.

Resistance DefenseEdit

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