The Sunlight Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Shield of Solaire of Astora, Knight of Sunlight. Decorated with a holy symbol, but Solaire illustrated it himself, and it has no divine powers of its own.
As it turns out, Solaire's incredible prowess is a product of his own training, and nothing else.

AvailabilityEdit

The Sunlight Shield is dropped by Solaire of Astora.

CharacteristicsEdit

Besides the symbol on it, the Sunlight Shield is almost equal in defensive capabilities to the Tower Kite Shield. It has slightly less stability, while having slightly more fire defense and being slightly heavier. The Sunlight Shield has medium deflection and normal parry speed. When upgraded to crystal, the durability is 28.

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 60%
