Medium Shields are a type of shield in Dark Souls III.

Medium shields are characterized by their medium weight, moderate stat requirements and reliable defenses. The amount of stability provided by a medium shield will vary, but they will generally be able to absorb at least a few hits from enemy attacks, while providing high absorption that allows little to no damage to bleed through. A proper medium shield will block 100% of all physical damage, and will have high elemental defenses to allow the wielder to avoid the brunt of most elemental attacks. Many medium shields are capable of performing parries, however they have the smallest amount of active frames and long startups that require the wielder to predict attacks in order to parry them reliably.

Their moderate defensive capabilities means that medium shields can greatly benefit from upgrades. Their respectable stability can be increased further with investment, becoming a reliable tool to defend against enemy attacks.
