The Plank Shield is a small shield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Makeshift shield built from wood planks. Provides minimal protection, but at a cost of moderate humiliation.

AvailabilityEdit

The Plank Shield is given to the Deprived class at the beginning of the game. Alternately, it can be found on a corpse in Blighttown just before the hidden entrance to The Great Hollow.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Plank Shield has light deflection and a long parry window. The Plank Shield is 50% heavier than the Cracked Round Shield and almost as poor at reducing damage. However, at the stage of the game where it can be obtained the Plank Shield has good lightning resist. However, the Wooden Shield is a straight upgrade to this and can be obtained earlier, in the Undead Burg.

Resistance DefenseEdit

Along with Physical and Elemental damage reduction, weapons also have hidden stats that reduce the amount of status build-up while blocking.

Aux Bleed 65%
Aux Poison 80%
Def res toxic 80%
Def res cur 50%
