|Weapon type||Large Shield|
|Req. Param.||Param. Bonus|
- Found on a corpse close to the Red Dragon in 1-1. While it is not required to kill the dragon to reach the shield, it will be far safer.
It is comparable to the Steel Shield, sporting almost identical stats. The difference is that the Steel Shield provides 20% less Fire resistance, but also weighs two units less and requires four less Strength.
When upgraded down the Dark path, it will also sport a respectable 70% Magic resistance, making it highly adaptable. However, this will reduce Guard Break Reduction to the base value of 60, compared to the 82 it has if its Standard path is completed.
