Rebel's Greatshield
rebel's greatshield

In-Game Description

Shield of the rebel Raime.

Raime and Velstadt were known as
the left- and right-arms of the King,
until their wills clashed, and Raime was
deemed a traitor.

The black raven is despised as an augur
of death, but it was Raime's favorite bird.

Availability

Forest of Fallen Giants treasure. Behind the door just before the Last Giant's cave, locked with the Iron Key guarded by two Flame Salamanders.
You can jump down into the salamander pit from just down the ladder from the Cardinal Tower bonfire. Be sure to equip any falling damage reduction equipment to soften your landing.

It's also possible to perform a difficult jump from the tunnel with the Fire Longsword.

Notes

  • Low physical defense, but sports an unmatched array of resistances against everything else.
  • Infusing with any element will increase that specific element's reduction to 100%, but lowers the rest.
  • This shield was chosen to be in the game as one of the winners of the Shield Design Contest held by Namco Bandai and FROM Software.
  • Originally named the Great Shield of the Raven Goddess. Additional image.

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:

Determines how high various Stats must be in order to wield the shield effectively.
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.
The Aux Effect Reduction % stats for a shield are A / B / C / D:

  • A is Poison Effect
  • B is Bleed Effect
  • C is Petrify Effect
  • D is Curse Effect
Damage Reduction:

The Damage Reduction % of the shield. It dictates how much damage the shield mitigates while blocking.
The Damage Reduction % 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
Stability: Determines the amount of stamina expended to block an incoming attack. A higher stability also allows you to block stronger
attacks without breaking guard and reduces the amount of stamina depleted from blocking attacks.
