Standard Shields are a type of Shield in Demon's Souls and Demon's Souls Remake that varies between light and heavy characters. Standard Shields have a good balance between defense and weight which is great for most situations in combat. Although it may not be as light as a small shield which is good for agility and parrying, the standard shield works best at reducing damage and blocking. This page covers a list of all the standard shields in Demon's Souls.

Stats Icons


 

  • Stat Requirements / Bonus: The Requirements determine how high various Stats must be in order to wield the shield effectively. Although it is possible to wield a shield with lower STR value, players are most likely to suffer from breaking their character's guard.
  • Attack Values: The attack values determine the damage the shield does from using "Bash". All the shields have Blunt physical damage except for the Spiked Shield. Shields also act as a secondary weapon apart from being a piece of defensive equipment.
  • Damage Reduction Values: The damage reduction values indicate how much the shield mitigates attacks while blocking.
  • Guard Break Reduction: This indicates the amount of stamina that is reduced when a player blocks an attack. A high value of guard break grants the player to block strong attacks without breaking their guard, as well as reducing the amount of stamina.
  • Weight Value: Weight determines the mobility of the player. Carrying over 50% of equipment reduces the speed movement of the dodge roll, while over 100% of carrying weight reduces the player's regular walking speed, and will suffer from being momentarily stunned after rolling or using a backstep.
  • Durability: The durability determines the effectiveness of the shield. Over time, depending on how much the shield is used by the player, the shield will slowly reduce its durability and start to deteriorate once it falls below 30%
