The Spiked Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Shield of the infamous Darkwraith Kirk, Knight of Thorns. Covered with spikes.
Can be used as a weapon. Sharp spikes cause heavy bleeding.

AvailabilityEdit

The Spiked Shield is a semi common drop from Kirk, Knight of Thorns in one of his three invasion encounters. However, since he only spawns three times per playthrough, obtaining his shield is not guaranteed. The possible invasion encounters are in the Depths, Demon Ruins, and Lost Izalith.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Spiked Shield has an overhead shield bash attack instead of a parry and has a light deflection. This shield is one of the three Standard Shields that cannot parry. The other two are the Pierce Shield and the Crystal Shield. It also has a Bleed auxiliary effect of 300. The Bleed buildup is 33 per strike, and once inflicted will deal 30% of the opponent's total health. This shield is only one of two that have a Dexterity parameter bonus, the other being the Pierce Shield. It is also one of only four shields that has a dexterity requirement, the other three being the Pierce Shield, Buckler and the Target Shield. When the Spiked Shield is upgraded to Crystal, the durability is 16.

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 Poison 79%
