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.
