Yellow Quartz Shield
yellow quartz shield

In-Game Description

A small shield affixed with a yellow quartz.
This shield was found in the Iron Keep.
Breaks easily due to corrosion,
but is light and still very stable.

In the Old Iron King's great iron keep
was a vast collection of weapons, erected
as a display of strength to the world.
But they were lost when the king's conceit
doomed the castle to sink into a lake of fire.

Notes

  • A Hollow Soldier Shield encrusted with hard yellow quartz. All non-physical resistances and status defenses are much better, and carries 20 more base stability, allowing it to block attacks much more effectively.
  • Interestingly, it has 150% of the durability of the Hollow Soldier Shield at 60 compared to the former's mere 40, despite claiming to be more brittle.
  • Paired with the Yellow Quartz Longsword.

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.
