The Sacred Bloom Shield is a Small Shield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A treasured antique of the Way of White, known to some as the Sorcerer's Bane.
The large blossom design that graces the shield is said to be a sacred flame, and the shield is blessed with high magic protection.
Skill: Spell Parry
Repel an attack at the right time to follow up with a critical hit. Works while equipped in either hand. Also deflects spells.


Found in Lothric Castle, on a ledge near the Winged Knight Set. The area lies behind an illusory wall located behind the twinaxe-wielding Winged Knight that awaits up the ladder of a small tower shortly after the initial Lothric Castle bonfire.


The Sacred Bloom Shield is a unique Small Shield with special qualities that places it high in its class. With moderate all-round resistances, its greatest asset is its extremely high Magic absorption, beating all but the most hardened Greatshields. Besides being a Small Shield that possesses fast parry frames, it also possesses the unique Spell Parry skill, shared only by the Golden Wing Crest Shield, allowing it to deflect incoming magical projectiles with the right timing.

With its light weight and minuscule Strength requirements, the Sacred Bloom Shield is a strong tool for any player who wishes to minimize the offensive power of any mages they may face.
