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)

      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.

                Sorta silly that the shield doesn't block 100% Physical, it's overall stats aren't anything special and making it at least function as a shield with slight stamina recovery wouldn't make it overpowered.

                Only real use is to be used offhand to increase stamina recovery.

                  Stamina Regen28 Sep 2016 14:55  

                  Does anyone know if the Stamina regeneration also works if it's not on my back but in one of the offhand slots?It's just not doing well with an evil bleed build but more Stamina regeneration is always useful

                    I would leave this is storage if you have the stam regen ring as the extra stam regen does not really seem to help with shields much, it would be better to dodge sometimes then it would to let your shield take a hit.

                      why is the notes and tips classified this as one of the Enchanted Blue Shield like the Dragon Crest and Crest Shield ?"One of the crest Shields, each one specializes in a different niche.Improves Stamina recovery by 4 points per second while equipped."it description says "Old medium metal shield of unknown origin.The grass crest is lightly imbued with magic, which slightly speeds stamina recovery."while the Enchanted Blue Shields both have the following (paranthesis for dragon crest) :"A knight's shield engraved with a crest (depicting a dragon.)One of the enchanted blue shields."This shield doesn't so let us please remove the mention in Note and TIps please ( especially that it doesn't have any specialized stat reduction)
