The Wolf Knight's Greatshield is a greatshield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Greatshield of a knight tainted by the dark of the Abyss, and master of the wolf's blood of Farron.
Boasts consistent defense and divine protection against various status effects.
Skill: Weapon Skill
Equipping this shield in the left hand allows one to perform the Skill of the right hand weapon.


Obtained by reaching Rank 2 in the Watchdogs of Farron covenant.


The Wolf Knight's Greatshield is a light and flexible greatshield suited for an active playstyle. It has decent stability, and is the third lightest greatshield in the game, as well as the lightest greatshield that still provides 100% physical damage block. When equipped, it boosts the player's resistance to status effects.

Instead of a shield bash, the Wolf Knight's Greatshield's skill allows it to perform the weapon art of the right-hand weapon without the need to two-hand it. This allows it to be combined with all sorts of right-hand weapons to simultaneously provide the player with strong defensive power as well as high offensive potential.

However, the Wolf Knight's Greatshield lacks strong elemental defense, and in particular is weak to Lightning damage. If there is a need to fight enemies that can deal other damage types than physical, it may be wise to equip a different shield.




Upgrades with Twinkling Titanite.
