Curse Ward Greatshield is a Shield in Dark Souls 3.
Greatshield given to those who resisted the curse long ago.
Far too heavy for an ordinary person, perhaps it signifies the foolishness of resisting the curse.
And yet, those who bear the weight of this shield will not find its protections against curses wanting.
Skill: Weapon Skill
Equipped this shield in the left hand allows one to perform the Skill of the right hand weapon.
Notes and Tips:
- Can NOT be Infused but can be Buffed.
- Reinforced with Titanite Scales.
- Provides an average block of 76.4%.
- Despite the description, this shield doesn't block sources of curse build-up or increase the wielder's curse resistance. However, the "curse" could be referring to the Undead Curse, a major plot point in Dark Souls I and II.
- This looks remarkably similar to the Pursuer's Greatshield. The cutout portions on the Pursuer's Greatshield are horizontal, whereas the cutouts on this shield are vertical. Both shields are mentioned as "unbearably heavy" and "protective against curses".
Location/Where to Find
- Looted from a corpse on an alter near the first short cut at Cathedral of the Deep. (Watch the Fextra Video at 1hr 1min 24secs in)
