Shields are a type of equipment in Demon's Souls.


Shields are typically equipped on the offhand slot. Shields absorb damage; although weapons can also absorb damage through blocking, they almost always feature much lower damage reduction. How much shields absorb are reflected by their statistics.

Shield Types[]

Small Shields
Small Shields are the lightest shields, making them good for faster classes that do not want to be encumbered by heavy equipment. The in-game weapon type is listed as: Small Shield.
Standard Shields
Standard Shields usually have better stability and damage reduction than small shields, but at the price of increased weight. The in-game weapon type is listed as: Shield.
Large Shields
Large Shields usually come with better defensive values and stability than small and medium shields, but at the cost of greater weight and lack of a parry attack. The in-game weapon type is listed as: Large Shield.
