The Moaning Shield is a greatshield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A deformed greatshield given to Eygon of Carim upon being conferred knighthood.
The giant woman's face that protects Eygon is that of his sister, some years his senior.
Skill: Moan
Offer a gentle prayer to the shield, causing the woman's face to give out a low moan and attract enemies.


Dropped by Eygon of Carim, or found on his corpse inside of Irina of Carim's cell in the Undead Settlement after completing her questline.


The Moaning Shield is a very unique greatshield, with notably high Magic and Lightning resistances. While heavy, it boasts extremely high stability, being beat only by the Greatshield of Glory, while still being lighter than Havel's Greatshield. However, requiring 50 Strength to wield, it has the highest strength requirement of any greatshield.

The Moaning Shield's skill, Moan, is unique in that it will cause the woman's face on the shield to emit a low moan, attracting nearby enemies. This can be useful when helping other players as a phantom, as it allows one to draw the attention of enemies away from the host for various purposes.
