The Wooden Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Vertically elongated wooden shield. Decorated with a white dragon.
Wood shields are lighter then metal shields, but with lower physical damage reduction, and reduced shield stability.

AvailabilityEdit

The Wooden Shield can be found early on in Undead Burg, at the tower with the first crossbow wielding Hollow Soldier to the right of the first bonfire; there is a door that can be opened at the base of the tower, leading to a corpse with the Wooden Shield.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Wooden Shield is a medium shield that is fairly good at absorbing damage at the stage that it is found, with the best physical damage reduction for an ultra-light wooden shield. Although shields found later often have better damage reduction and stability, the Wooden Shield is one of the lightest shields in the game, making it useful for characters that wish to remain mobile. The shield has medium deflection and fast parry speed. When 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.
