In-Game Description

Small, leather-covered round shield, reinforced in critical spots with metal.
Small shields are always less stable, but landing critical hits after parry is easier.

The Small Leather Shield is given to the Sorcerer class at the beginning of the game. It can also be purchased from the Undead Male Merchant for 600 souls.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Small Leather Shield has light deflection and a long parry window. The Small Leather Shield is the lightest shield in the game, along with the Dark Hand, however can have a total of 50 Stability at +15 Standard compared to the Dark Hand's 30 Stability.  Its crystal durability is 20.
