Moaning Shield is a Greatshield in Dark Souls 3.

A deformed greatshield given to Eygon of Carim upon being conferred knighthood.

The giant woman's face that protects Eygon is that of his sister, some years his senior.

Skill: Moan

Offer a gentle prayer to the shield, causing the woman's face to give out a low moan and attract enemies.

Notes and Tips

  • Cannot be Infused.
  • Can be buffed with Magic Shield or Great Magic Shield
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Provides an average block of 78.6%. Exceptionally solid blocking, but requires the highest strength of all greatshields at 50 points. Also boasts the second highest stabillity in game, 82 at +5.
  • Can be given to Pickle Pee, Pump-a-Rum Crow in exchange for a Blessed Gem.
  • Using Magic Shield on this shield when maximally upgraded will result in no stamina loss through blocking, however, elemental damage will chip through.
  • At +4 it can survive a fully upgraded, full Ledo's Great Hammer weapon art if you have around 40 endurance.

      The moan isn't alluring in the slightest. It's more like the sound one does after finishing beating their meat alone.

        I think the 50 STR requirement should have been reserved for Havel's shield, as that one is by far the heaviest in the game.

          It's a japanese studio, and they didn't take the opportunity to make the moan super over the top? Impossible

            Magic shield's stability boost is 18. Combined with this beast of a shield's whopping 82, you get exactly 100 stability without going with either the Greatshield of Glory or Great Magic Shield (which requires 18 INT instead of 10 and lasts only half as much). I wonder if this was intended, it's pretty much optimization at its best.

              Your Character have to be female on the current Patch (1.09)! On Male Characters the weapon art is silenced :(

                Idk if any one knows this but the weapon art is op for pve you get infinite poise and reduced damage (while moan is happening) the only thing good against it is multi hit magic and ring knight weapons as well as frayd blade laser try it out

                  It's interesting simply because his job is to protect the maiden he serves as a knight of Carim.

                  So he gets a shield that draws enemy attention to him.

                  If they kill him who watches over the blind girl with a bell.

                  That's a tragic thought, especially since we find Mournes ring and a book of Carim Miracles on two corpses that were mangled by Skinhounds.

                  No wonder Eygon locked Irina in a cage and waited and waited. He figured it out. That's why he lets us take her without a fight. She's safer with us than she ever was with him.

                    Okay, so, there is something weird going on with the weapon art. On my character STR/FTH character with 50 STR the shield doesn't moan, but on my quality character with 40/40 STR/DEX the weapon art produces a moan and it doesn't matter if I two-hand it or one-hand it.

                      "69 fire resistance"., the stat from it and weapon art proves it all that it's something you would bring in bed

                        The Moan is treated as a Voice effect. If you've turned the speech volume down all the way you won't hear the moan.
                        Also, if I hear the twin princes lines one more time I will do something unfortunate.

                          So sad it's silent now.. Another fun weapon made utterly pointless for no reason at all.
                          Could still use it as a pure, co-op support build.. I guess?
