Grass Crest Shield is a Shield in Dark Souls 3.

Old medium metal shield of unknown origin.

The grass crest is lightly imbued with magic, which slightly speeds stamina recovery.

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

Notes and Tips:

  • Can NOT be Infused.
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Provides an average damage block of 47.8%. Has poor damage block capacity, more of an auxilary tool than a shield due to it's ability.
  • One of the crest Shields, each one specializes in a different niche.
  • Improves Stamina recovery by 4 points per second while equipped.
  • Does stack with Chloranthy Ring.
  • Stability 56/57 at +4/+5

Location/Where to Find

  • Road of Sacrifices: From the Crucifixion Woods bonfire, drop down to the right of the large crab towards one of the large trees. Loot the corpse on the right side of the tree. (Watch the Item Location Video Guide)

      Green blossom, this, chloranthy ring, warpick/pickaxe weapon art, power within. With all of these things combined, you will become the god of stamina. Swing with reckless abandon, it doesn't matter, your stamina will zoom back to full in no time at all.

          This comment section be kind of like "it's not completely OP therefore it sucks"

          Stacks with ring and grass. Base stamina regen is 45/s. Don't underestimate how taking that to 60/s with chloranty +3 and this can make a significant difference - that's a 33% increase in stamina regen speed. 33% more attacks and rolls in the same time. Can save your life.

            Almost not worth using. Damage reduction is nerfed compared to DS1 counterpart and the STM regen is too low for it to be a worthy trade-off. Wanted to play as my exact same character as DS1 but guess I'll have to switch out the shield for something useful

              Don’t use this shield as a shield, it’s a bad shield. Don’t use this shield as a stamina buff, it’s a bad stamina buff. This shield provides a meager +4 stamina regen. Compare that to a Green Blossom that offers +5 or, more importantly, Chloranthy Ring+3 which offers +10, over double this shield. Even a Chloranthy Ring+0 offers +7 stamina regen. Compare that to a blessed infused shield which offers the same exact amount of HP regen as its ring counterpart, Sun Princess Ring. Therefore, if you’re just looking for a shield to use as a buff rather than a shield, just go with a blessed shield or blessed caestus. Almost all builds benefit from passive HP regen. Ethereal Oak Shield gets just as much HP regen as Sun Princess Ring at +0 and is actually a decent shield with 100 physical block. Grass Crest Shield is just bad (in DS3). Unless you’re going for some gimmicky build that has max stamina regen, just ignore this shield altogether. Just wear Chloranthy Ring+3 and/or pop a Green Blossom if you want stamina regen.

                I know this stacks with the Chloranthy Ring, but does it also stack with the Green Blossom? I'm curious if it would stack if I had the ring on and if I ate the Green Blossom too as well as wearing this shield?

                  Does anyone know why this isn't considered one of the "blue enchanted shields" like the Golden Wing Crest Shield and the Spirit Tree Crest Shield? I thought maybe because its appearance in DaS might classify it as older/separate but the Dragon Crest Shield was in DaS as well.

                    So...I just now find out it's a stamina regen item :/

                    I have my caestus infused with blessed but now I think if I will switch them out for this or dump the faith talsman.

                      Pretty neato shield, +4 stamina recovery/s. Fantastic shield if you're two-handing a lot. With a typical 160 stamina, you can fully recover in ~3.25s assuming you don't overuse stamina. If you overuse stamina, it can take a maximum of ~4.5s to fully recover.
