A crude wooden shield used by the masses who have
arisen to join the hunt.
Hunters do not normally employ shields, ineffectual
against the strength of the beasts as they tend to be.
Shields are nice, but not if they engender passivity.
Cathedral Ward treasure. From the Cathedral Ward lantern, head straight until you're outside then take a right and head all the way up the stairs.
There will be a large gate at the top with a a corpse in front of it that holds the shield.
- Cannot be upgraded.
- Cannot be imprinted.
- Holding up the shield decreases stamina regeneration and each hit taken while blocking will deplete stamina.
- Blocking players with small weapons such as the Blade of Mercy will cause their attacks to be deflected, potentially allowing for brief openings.
