Orma's Greatshield
orma's greatshield

In-Game Description

Shield of the knights who long ago
attempted to conquer the Undead Crypt.

They bore no weapons, only a shield split into
left and right halves, which they used to
playfully crush their foes until their corpses
where kneaded beyond recognition.

The engraving depicts two messengers from the
hereafter who welcome the recently dead by
reviewing the merits of their deeds in life.

Key

Damage:

The Damage stat dictates how much damage the shield does when used for bashing. The Damage stats for a shield are A / B / C / D / E:

  • A is Physical Damage
  • B is Magical Damage
  • C is Fire Damage
  • D is Lightning Damage
  • E is Dark Damage

Most shields deal Strike damage, with a few exceptions.
Certain enemies are weak or strong against different damage types.

Counter Strength: Damage multiplier when hitting an enemy that is performing an action such as attacking. Value of 100 means no extra damage.
Poise Damage: The ability of the shield to break the poise of an enemy.
Durability: The durability of the shield. The shield will break when durability reaches 0.
Weight: The weight of the shield. Note that carrying over 70% of your Equip Weight will reduce the speed of your rolls, while going
over 100% will reduce your regular speed to walking and attempts to roll or backstep will leave you momentarily stunned.
Stats Needed:

The requirement stats for shields are A / B / C / D:

  • A is the Strength required
  • B is the Dexterity required
  • C is the Intelligence required
  • D is the Faith required

While it is possible to use a shield with lower-than-required Strength, your character will suffer a severe penalty to damage reduction.

Aux Effect:

The Aux Effect stat dictates how effective the shield will be at causing the effect. The Aux Effect stats for a shield are A / B:

  • A is Poison Effect
  • B is Bleed Effect
Aux Effect Reduction:

The Aux Effect Reduction % of the shield. It dictates how much effect the shield mitigates while blocking.

  • C is Petrify Effect
  • D is Curse Effect
Damage Reduction:

  • A is Physical Damage
  • B is Magical Damage
  • C is Fire Damage
  • D is Lightning Damage

attacks without breaking guard and reduces the amount of stamina depleted from blocking attacks.
