For the Dark Souls III variant, see Silver Knight Shield (Dark Souls III).

The Silver Knight Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Shield of the Silver Knights of Anor Londo. A flowing canal is carved deep into its face.
The Silver Knights stayed behind in Anor Londo to defend the illusory goddess, and their shields are blessed with her divine protection.


Dropped by Silver Knights in Anor Londo.


The Silver Knight Shield is one of the best medium shields in the game, with the highest stability of its class, both before and after upgrading (except the Crystal Balder Shield +5), as well as the highest resistance total. It also does not require valuable Titanite Chunks and Slabs to upgrade.

Its only real downside is the above-average weight and Strength requirement for a medium shield. Like most metal shields, its magic defense remains somewhat weak.

It has a medium deflection and normal parrying speed.

Resistance DefenseEdit

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