"Shield of the Black Knights that wander Lordan. A flowing canal is chiseled deeply into its face."
"Long ago, the black knights faced the chaos demons, and were charred black, but their shields became highly resistant to fire."

Acquired from:

Hints and Tips:

  • A marginally heavier Silver Knight Shield with a smidge less stability and 20% of magic resistance traded for fire.
  • #1 fire resistance shield in the game, full stop. The downside compared to the Dragon Crest Shield is its rarity, the unluckier might not find it before grinding the Kiln.

      This is a very good shield (especially if you drop it early from a black knight) but it's clearly not the best shield. The silver knight shield has a better stability when upgraded +5 and better magic defense for a lower weight. But regarding only fire defense it's the best shield indeed.

        This is arguably the best all round shield in the game. Not too heavy, unparalleled fire resistance and when fully upgraded, has a stability that rivals greatshields. Additionally, this shield can very easily parry, and if that wasn't enough, it's damn stylish.

          I was lucky enough to get this to drop on the Northern Undead Asylum Knight when I was getting the rusty Iron Ring prior to Blightown. Made a lot of people happy co-oping for the Quelaag fight, being able to tank just about everything she threw at me while the host and other phantom attacked from safety, including her AoE fire ability that would only take a tiny sliver of my health away when blocking.

            This is my main shield in DS3. Now that I'm trying out DS1, I'm kinda ticked that it's a rare drop before the Kiln. I mean, I have the Dragon Crest, but I always love the BKS.
