Moaning Shield is a Greatshield in Dark Souls 3.

A deformed greatshield given to Eygon of Carim upon being conferred knighthood.

The giant woman's face that protects Eygon is that of his sister, some years his senior.

Skill: Moan

Offer a gentle prayer to the shield, causing the woman's face to give out a low moan and attract enemies.

  • Cannot be Infused.
  • Can be buffed with Magic Shield or Great Magic Shield
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.

  • Using Magic Shield on this shield when maximally upgraded will result in no stamina loss through blocking, however, elemental damage will chip through.

      It's interesting simply because his job is to protect the maiden he serves as a knight of Carim.

      So he gets a shield that draws enemy attention to him.

      If they kill him who watches over the blind girl with a bell.

      That's a tragic thought, especially since we find Mournes ring and a book of Carim Miracles on two corpses that were mangled by Skinhounds.

      No wonder Eygon locked Irina in a cage and waited and waited. He figured it out. That's why he lets us take her without a fight. She's safer with us than she ever was with him.

        Okay, so, there is something weird going on with the weapon art. On my character STR/FTH character with 50 STR the shield doesn't moan, but on my quality character with 40/40 STR/DEX the weapon art produces a moan and it doesn't matter if I two-hand it or one-hand it.

          "69 fire resistance"., the stat from it and weapon art proves it all that it's something you would bring in bed

            The Moan is treated as a Voice effect. If you've turned the speech volume down all the way you won't hear the moan.
            Also, if I hear the twin princes lines one more time I will do something unfortunate.

              So sad it's silent now.. Another fun weapon made utterly pointless for no reason at all.
              Could still use it as a pure, co-op support build.. I guess?

                      Does this, in fact, mean that, for instance, an invader can use the shield to attract enemies to the host?

                        So I believe I seen someone using this as a medium shield. Was that possibly a different shield or this one?
