The Mastodon Greatshield is a greatshield in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Shield of the Primal Knights that defend Drangleic castle. Very heavy, and has the power of lightning.
The brutish and mighty Primal Knights wield this shield as if it were made of paper, but to the ordinary warrior it is a chore to even hold up, owing to its great weight.
Whatever was created by Lord Aldia was lost with his disappearance, but the King attempted to revive these things, even if only fragments remained.


Dropped by Primal Knights in the Doors of Pharros and Drangleic Castle.


Though it lacks a 100% physical damage reduction, it boasts decent elemental defenses and resistances, as well as high Stability. However, much like the other Mastodon equipment, it also boasts a high Strength requirement.

As the description states, the shield is imbued with the power of Lightning, granting it more damage potential, as well as a very high raw resistance to lightning attacks.

Infusing this shield with a Boltstone will grant it a 100% damage reduction to Lightning attacks, an effect similar to that of the Watcher's Shield, while still being able to provide a solid defense even after infusion.


Reinforced with Titanite.
