In-Game Description

A small shield depicting a hero of yore.

Perhaps these famed champions are no more,
or perhaps they have no desire (to) appear in
public view.

But their very absence has made tales of their,
brave deeds all the more alluring, and this
shield memorializes one of their brethren.

Availability

Reward for reaching Rank 1 in the Heirs of the Sun covenant.

Notes

  • Remarkable status resistances for a light shield, but awful against physical attacks.
  • As of Scholar of the First Sin, it also boasts top-grade lightning defense, tied with the Mastodon Greatshield and Cleric's Small Shield. Whereas the cleric shield can parry spells and has better overall defense, this one is even lighter and can be obtained much, much earlier.
  • 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 Sunlight Warrior, Dark. 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.
