Ancient Dragon Greatshield is a Shield in Dark Souls 3.
A wooden shield bearing the image of an ancient dragon. Very slowly regenerates HP.
The painting is the result of an exquisite but painstaking technique. Lingering, undying traces of the ancient dragons can still be seen in their descendants, the man-serpents, though they have fallen far from grace.
Notes and Tips:
- Can NOT be Infused.
- Can be Buffed.
- Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
- Provides an average block of 51.2%.
- The lightest greatshield in the game, and the one with the lowest STR requirement, but at the cost of having the lowest overall defense and imperfect physical defense.
- This shield applies the same buff as the Sun Princess Ring, which regenerates 2 HP/s. The effects of each stack with each other.
- Heals 2 HP/s. Does not increase with reinforcement.
- Likely a reference to the Adjudicator's Shield, from Demon's Souls, which bore the same shape, heath regen effect, and also had a painting on the front (albeit depicting the judgement of the dead, rather than a great dragon).
Location/Where to Find
- Looted from a corpse in Archdragon Peak, on the arch just after the first bonfire and before the boss fight.
