Buckler is a Shield in Dark Souls 3.

A very small round metal shield.
It features a large central protrusion designed for parrying attacks.


Skill:  Parry
Repel an attack at the right time to follow up with a critical hit. Works while equipped in either hand.

Parry Type: Special
Longer frames during the parry window and longer recovery time.

Notes and Tips:

  • On the lighter side for a parrying shield, but the stability and absorption values are the lowest of the lot.
  • The earliest extended parry frame shield available for non-Assassins.
  • Can be Infused.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • NOT recommended for blocking, due to low block rates, and poor stability.
  • This shield has the extended parry animation, same as the Target Shield and Small Leather Shield.
  • Consumes the least amount of stamina for parries of all three extended parry shields.
  • Parry shields have 12 frames of successful parry animation and start at frame 9 as seen below.

        Katanas definitely have more parry frames than stated here. I tested it with the Chaos Blade on the Black Knight with the Greataxe right after the Champion Gundyr bonfire. I recorded as I was playing, parrying him over and over. Now as we all should know, the parry frames start when your stamina bar goes down, and counting the frames afterwards revealed that I got successful parries more than 4 frames after.
        e.g. taking the stamina loss frame as frame 1, then the frame where the parry sparks came was on frame 6.
        Another time it was on frame 9.
        If you take the frame that fp is consumed as frame 1, then the frame stamina is lost (thus the parry frames starting) is on frame 9, exactly the same as fist weapons.
        In this case, my previous tests landed successful parries on frames 14 and 17 respectively. Thus it seems to me like they share their frame data with fist weapons, the only uncertainty is that they might end 1 frame earlier or a couple of frames later.

          Hol' up, is this a small shield or a parry shield? I'm confused. It's in the small shield section but it in Notes & Tips it says something about it being a parry shield...

            where did the information "The earliest parrying shield available for non-Assassins" come from? the knight, warrior, thief, sorcerer, pyro, and (of course) the assassin all have parrying shields. 60% of the classes start with parrying shields...

              One of the worst kind of people is those who parry spams with the buckler, and after countless failed tries, they get a parry, one-shots you with hornet ring + dagger and then gives you a point down as if they thought they were good...

                Confused with the timing04 Jun 2016 05:41  

                There's a brief moment where you seem to block with the shield before doing a flourish, is that just a block or is that part of the parry animation? When I parry, I always seem to hit a weapon on the blocking part of the animation and it never initiates a parry. Do I need to time it where my character does the flourish after that quarter-second block, or am I just getting unlucky?

                    does the buckler, target shield, small leather shield, and parrying dagger all have the same amount of extended frames? or does one have slightly more then the others?

                      I would recommend infusing with simple cause then you can gain a little fp in between fights.

                        Parrying window25 Apr 2016 17:45  

                        I know that the buckler used to have the highest parrying window back in Dark Souls, does anyone know if that still applies?
