      Hands down best shield it works with any build pretty good shield even without the buff just put this on your back and your good to go

      • Anonymous

        Grass Crest Shield +15 is the best all around and most versalite shield for any build.

        If your build or current enemy doesn't require something specific (like poison/bleed blocking, high stability, 100% phys reduction etc.) or you're not using off-hand weapon -> stick with this shield for the entire game.

        A bit shitty look is it's only drawback.

          The Lightning Upgrades subsection incorrectly lists the physical defence as 100%, you got my hopes up there for a sec

          • Anonymous

            When I equip the Grass Crest Shield in Dark Souls Remastered while having a Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring on the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring's effects get overwritten. What's the deal with this? If it matters I also have a Blue Tearstone Ring on, but nothing with any other notable effects.


            The only things I can think are that effects don't stack unless otherwise stated, only two effects can be applied at once, or that this is a bug.

            • The grass crest shield is absolutely top tier. It's easy to get, it's light, has balance stats across the board and it gives you stamina regen boost. Even though it doesn't have a 100% physical reduction like all other medal shields, it's physical reduction is still usable. Best shield for multiple builds and play throughs.

              • Anonymous

                There is no way to get this shield to 100% damage reduction.
                The table says that the lightning upgrades make it 100 phys reduction, but it's wrong. It's always 95.
                Sad

                  Damn, I didn't know it had a stamina regen boost. You'd think they'd put such an important detail on the actual stats section. Mighthave to put down my heater shield for a second to give this a try

                    Once you equip this there's no going back, you can't really get apart with it because how quick your regeneration rate gets.

                    • Anonymous

                      Do the upgrades on the GCS (regular bonus, magic, lightning etc) still apply if you don’t parry much? I have a sorcerer and mostly use it for the stamina Regen and blocking. Thx
