Notes

  • Adds 18 Stability to shields.
  • Increases Damage Absorbtion of shields. Doesn't appear to be a flat increase, as there is a noticeable effect on low and very high absorbtion shields. A fire Black Iron Greatshield (96.3 Fire Def) still let through 4 fire damage instead of 6 when not buffed. Further testing is needed.
  • Duration affected by Lingering Dragoncrest Ring.
  • Both this and Great Magic Shield can buff Simple & Blessed Infused shields

      You know "appears to be the same as DS1/DS2 version" isn't too helpful. Not at all to be precise, more precise than you were at least.<br/>What if, just let's imagine the possibility of it, someone started with DS3?!

        it should be noted that magic shield now lasts for 60 seconds which is much better than the original 15 seconds in dark souls 1.

          my favourite part, "Appears to be the same as the Dark Souls 2 and Dark Souls 1 version.". Such a helpful note, basically says look somewhere else for info.
