Enchantable Yes
Special No

*When infused with Magic: 120 physical dmg/130 magic dmg, with Fire: 160 physical dmg/160 Fire dmg, with Lightning: 160 physical dmg/160 Lightning dmg

"Metal Greatshield. Used by the Knight Berenike, known for his heavy armour.
This plate of iron is heavily defensive but ultra heavy. Greatshields are very stable, and deflect attacks. However, one cannot parry, and instead bashes with the shield."

Acquired from:

  • Drop: Tower Knights in Undead Parish, Sen's Fortress and the Painted World (respawns).
  • Purchase: Crestfallen Merchant for 8000 souls.

Hints and Tips:

  • Fabulously stable, but very heavy.
  • 20 Str characters can two-hand it for fun and riot shield their way through the Undead Burg or something.
  • Inexpensive upgrades that mostly improve bashing damage.
