The Manikin Shield is a small shield in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A shield used by the manikins of Harvest Valley.
The peculiar art of puppetry is a vestige of the two lost lands. The Queen, entranced by poison, used it to beckon unknowing souls to the defiled valley.


Chance to be dropped by Manikins in Earthen Peak.


The Manikin Shield has fairly high physical damage reduction for a small shield, but quite low elemental resistances. The shield does, however, have above average Poison, Bleed, Petrification and Curse reduction in relation to its light weight, making it a good choice for characters with low Vitality in areas where negative status effects are common.
