Sacred Bloom Shield is a Shield in Dark Souls 3.

A treasured antique of the Way of White, known to some as the Sorcerer's Bane.

The large blossom design that graces the shield is said to be a sacred flame, and the shield is blessed with high magic protection.

Skill: Spell Parry

Repel an attack at the right time to follow up with a critical hit.  Works while equipped in either hand.  Also deflects spells.

Notes and Tips:

  • Can NOT be Infused.
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Provides an average block of 55%. Actually sports fantastic damage block for its weight. The shield also is one of two able to deflect spells, contributing to its value. This shield suffers from terrible stability however, its most glaring weakness. Compare to the Golden Wing Crest Shield.

      Even if you're not good at parrying, this has some nice magic absorption so just blocking incoming sorceries will do. Doesn't have as good lightning or dark defense, though.

        Perhaps Its a broken Sanctus from DS1 it sports a very similar design with the pattern and central gem and both shields came from the way of white.

          FYI if you parry a spell it keeps going and can hit people behind you.

          Happened to me and it felt amazing.

            Spell parry works on all projectile spells, but it can struggle to parry large projectiles like some pyromancies and Great Soul Dregs, since it might not move them far enough around you for you to avoid their hitbox. It also doesn't work on "beam" spells (like Soul Stream and Fire Surge, though it will work on Fire Whip) or "crawling" spells (like Black Serpent or White Dragon Breath). It also cannot parry the AoE resulting from spells like Lightning Stake or any spell with "storm" in the name (although you can, with perfect timing, spell parry a Lightning Stake, it will not move enough to affect the damage you take). Spells cast by most enemies in PvE can be spell parried, including some boss attacks (but not including Aldrich's Soul Spear, Lothric's Crystal Soul Spear, or anything cast by Soul of Cinder), although the wisdom of doing so is often questionable. The fireballs spat by the man-serpents in Archdragon Peak also cannot be spell parried.

              only for the true parry king, the true parry king does not need that much stamina he parry's perfectly every time

                Small shield but it's parry timing seems to be the same as medium shields and also eats quite a lot of stamina while parrying. Other shields are better for parrying and also consume less stamina compared to this one so you can stunlock an enemy after parrying. Not impressed.

                    Can also parry projectile Pyromancies and all forms of lightning spear (confirmed). Unconfirmed: Have not yet tested on Emit Force and Gnaw.
