The Lothric Knight Shield is a Medium Shield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Shield of the renowned Lothric Knights, decorated with the royal crest.
The Lothric Knights contended with dragons, and their shields have suitably high lightning absorption befitting a Dragonslayer's arms.
Skill: Parry
Repel an attack at the right time to follow up with a critical hit. Works while equipped in either hand.



One of the stronger Medium Shields in the game, the Lothric Knight Shield is popular due to its high stability and respectable elemental defense. It is quite heavy for a Medium Shield and requires a moderate amount of investment in Strength, however it is well worth it as it is considered second only to the Black Knight Shield.

Beyond its high stability, the Lothric Knight Shield is renowned for its ability to mitigate all forms of Lightning damage, moreso than even the Spirit Tree Crest Shield. This makes it useful in PvP, where it can easily shrug off offensive Miracles such as Lightning Arrow, and in single player where it can provide strong defense against the attacks of The Nameless King.


Reinforced with regular Titanite.
