How to Get / Where to Find the Crystal Ring Shield

Notes:

  • Low stability, low damage deflection and can't parry, but has the highest magic resistance in the game, tied with Havel's Greatshield.
  • L2 or R2 Attack (depending on which hand holds the shield) sends out a vertical magic disc that strikes enemies at range.
  • The special attack uses 4 durability points and ignores the East Wood Grain Ring.
  • This shield can be repaired. Do not mistake this for crystal equipment. It has crystal in its name but it is NOT crystal equipment.

      I forgot this thing even existed. Back during those first few months before it got patched to hell, it would hit like a truck and trivialize most bosses. I can understand why they'd want to nerf it, but they basically made it useless, which is a shame because it's the only thing in the series, weapon or shield, that even has a move like that.

        I think this should would be fine if it had better stability, but no worries really, you can just use repair spell and you should be good

            Fashion souls, true end game. That shield, the crystal catalyst, moonlight greatsword and the channeller set.

              Situational is a good word for it.
              General shield? Nah
              Magic shield? Yeeh
              Practically free projectile on moderate range? Yeeeh
              A potential middle finger in the faces of Dark Bead spammers when they unload on your shield and have Karmic Justice blow their faces off?
              ...Yes, but don't let them know that.

                it is a shame the remaster didn't re-balance the shield by adding a smidgeon of stat scaling. a c in intelligence even would have made it stay relavent during later game/new game +'s. As it is, the shield is just good for a few bits of chip damage at a moderate range. Or maybe pulling enemies if you're careful.
