  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Decreases stamina regeneration rate by -20 while equipped.  
  • Has 85 stability at +5 (the highest stability in game)    
  • Resemble the Drakekeepers' shields from Dark Souls II.

      It's only a 20% decrease in stamina regeneration speed(tested).<br/>Whoever wrote 45%-50% was just talking out their ass without actually trying it.

        Using Great Magic Shield with this causes you to lose 0 stamina when blocking. <br/>You even receive 0 damage from elemental attacks even though it doesn't have 100% resist in those.

        • possibly the legitimate stamina percent lost?31 May 2016 07:12  

          every time I look for the raw numbers, majority of people say it's 20% of your stamina regen speed that's lost. maybe that's true... maybe not... but it's the best I can find. and I'd edit the page myself... if I had any clue how to do that. :(

            This is apparently the Greatshield of Syan from Dark Souls 2 that goes by the same name. Strangely it was carried by certain Drakekeepers, who had their own Greatshield as well. <br/>

              Struggling with those great shied + estoc scrubs who play that way because they can't git gud? <br/><br/>Well I have something for you: poison<br/><br/>You can easily get those people poisoned with a poison resin on your weapon, so just get some long/fast weapon that can be buffed. I don't know exactly what's the best way to poison people, but playing normally and hitting the shield has worked for me. The key here is patience. Once you have them poisoned, just stay away and watch them panic after a few seconds. Most of them don't have brains, but those few who do will try to take it of by eating some purple weed stuff (really rare) will have to open their inventory and find it, so stay alert for those players and get ready to go in if you see them stand still without holding their guard or anything. Sometimes one poison application won't kill them completely, but it's not too hard to make it happen again. If you use magic, there is a staff and a pyromancy that will make a cloud of poison, which will fu*k up these idiots pretty hard as well.

                This thing is useless really, since players dont bounce back on shields. Its 'ok' in pve but theres better options like slayers and yhorms
