"Shield of a nameless knight, likely a high-ranked knight of Astora."

"One of the enchanted blue shields. The dragon crest shield greatly reduces fire damage."

 

Acquired from:

 

 

Hints and Tips:

  • A boon for low-level Master Key havers, otherwise only available after a grueling trip through Blighttown, or by taking the elevator from the bonfire in Darkroot Basin.
  • The Undead Dragon guarding the items can be easily dispatched at range using spells, miracles, or even a bow, if you have enough arrows and patience.
  • Don't forget to grab the Astora's Straight Sword  sitting right next to it.
  • The choice fire protection shield for most, thanks to the scarcity of the superior Black Knight Shield  and the impractical heft of the Black Iron Greatshield.
  • A mostly okay shield otherwise. Not worth the upgrade cost.

      Surprisingly good shield early game, especially against the Bell Gargoyles (presuming your stamina doesn't get completely drained from blocking the fire). Unfortunately is easily outclassed, especially by the easily obtained Grass Crest Shield that you can get before even the Taurus Demon if you go out of your way to grab it.

        Whenever I equip the shield, no change in fire defence is seen at all. Though when I equip the red stoneplate ring it boosts defense?
