Shield of Want is a Shield in Dark Souls 3.
Shield of an ancient king who was cursed by an all-consuming thirst. In the end, he was no king.
The residue of the king's lust still smolders within this shield, increasing the number of souls absorbed when enemies are defeated.
Skill: Weapon Skill
Equipping this shield in the left hand allows one to perform the Skill of the right hand weapon.
Notes and Tips:
- Can NOT be Infused.
- Reinforced with Titanite Scales.
- Provides an average damage block of 65.6%. Second highest stability among standard shields, but a whole 2 units lighter. Fields a rather high 18 strength requirement but is remarkably effective, in addition to its passive ability. One of the best general use shields in the game.
- Increases souls gained by 20%. Stacks with other items.
- Wearing Covetous Silver Serpent Ring provides 32% more Souls, if also wearing Symbol of Avarice you gain 98% more Souls.
- Shield must be held for the souls to count. Will still count if you dual wield or two-hand a weapon.
- You do not need to meet the Strength requirement to gain the 20% bonus.
- It's King Vendrick's shield from Dark Souls II.
