The Tower Kite Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Medium metal shield. Decorated with a tower, the symbol of protection. A standard, widely-used shield.

AvailabilityEdit

The Tower Kite Shield is the starting shield for the Knight class. It can also be purchased from Andre of Astora for 1,000 souls.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Tower Kite Shield is identical to the Caduceus Kite Shield in terms of stats. It is one of the most solid medium shields in the game - while it has slightly less stability than the Balder Shield, it also has higher magic and fire defense, the latter of which makes it useful against several early bosses.

It requires very low Strength to wield, in fact, all classes apart from Thief and Sorcerer can wield it without any investments in Strength, thus making a good starting shield. While it eventually becomes outclassed by the Silver Knight Shield, it is still useful for those requiring a lighter shield or one with lower stat requirements.

It has a medium deflection, normal parry speed, and when upgraded to crystal the durability is 25.

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 85%
Def res toxic 85%
Def res cur 50%
