      Played this game for two years with multiple NG+s and replays, but never knew this thing existed in the game til I saw a comment about it on reddit. Now I have a new goal.

        Now for an almost unrelated story except for the fact that I was trying to get this shield.
        Now I was invading tryng to farm the damned sword grass, I spent around 3 hours on it because it was a slow day and I'm bad, so here I am, with 29 out of 30, I invade and almost die to a gank, I then proceed to run away towards my crabbos friends so I'm on an attrition battle where I'll probably lose, 30 seconds later I'm basically dead but the host is low on HP, there's this small problem for me where a chaos bed vestige is flying towards me, in a final attempt for that swordgrass I shoot my trusty(Not trusty at ****ing all, never hit **** ever with it) knight crossbow and shoot it at the host, and as a Christmas miracle the host tryng to drink some estus but he didn't have it or something, so his character started shaking the flask, the important part is that it made him stand still, still enough for my trusty untrusty knight's crossbow to hit him while I'm bussy dying, anyway this didn't happen anytime near Christmas so it wasn't a Christmas miracle and I still didn't get the swordgrass.

        But I still think about that today about 1 and a half years later and I still think it's cool.

          Best way to get this?
          Cheat: Go offline, put on cheat engine (max loot), go to bonfire in swamp, farm the poison spear guys for wolf grass.
          Doesn't take more than 5 minutes.

            Great for fashion, it does its job for general use pve. Will want to switch out to black iron greatshield for certain bosses like midir though.

              Pure garbage compared to the DS1 original. 71 stability when fully upgraded, as opposed to 88 stability, unupgraded. It's also a sh*tty covenant item that costs 30 sword grass.

                I dunno, you only get two more stability than the Black Knight Shield, for 11 weight compared to 7.5, and much less fire res, way higher stat requirements and way harder to get... I think if you want to go a greatshield, go all the way and use Yhorm's or GOG, otherwise Lothric Knight Shield and Black Knight Shield I think are far superior... this shield is very cool though!

                  Most OP shield, been my favourite since. Artorias set+his sword+this shield and you dont have to worry about Midir's or The Storm King's fire anymore. Just L1 and charge your way through victory

                    Best way to nab this big doggo shield? Do the invasions! I know it’s tough for some but hear me out. If you’re past lvl 30 and you really want it, make a new character. I suggest starting as knight, never upgrading ANY weapon past +2 (+1 for weapons upgraded with special components) and making a vigor based build focusing on getting the minimum req for whatever weapon you like best for pvp and then raw infusing that’s weapon. Here’s a few good beginner pvp weapons if you don’t have a preference; Claymore, Hollow-Slayer Greatsword, large club, zweheinder, spiked mace. Now you rush to get the covenant, equip, and then play through the game as normal. Because the watchdogs DO NOT require you to be in the area to be summoned, you can play through the game and still be summoned to invade for swordgrass. Just remember the basics rules of lvl 30, only +2 reinforcement (+1 for special weapons) and you will be summoned rather frequently. I hope this helps!

                      for those who prefer to invade as defender.... just dont, unless you are 100% sure you can take 2-3 ppl at once, as its mostly fight clubs and gank squads. on the bright side, farming ghrus is a lot quicker way to farm grass and at the same time you'll be denying gankers their prey, so they can farm covenant for days and weeks instead ^^

                        wouldve been cool if weapon art was a small forcefield that probably cured ailments and maybe health regen or smth but you cant move when you use it and the forcefield doesnt block 100% of damage

                          Just farm invasions for a bit i got like 10 swordgrass in an hour, plus you can hone your pvp skills and its a lot more fun then killing the same enemy for 3 hours straight

                            If you run Helm of Avarice from Keep Ruins on those Ghrus and join covenant, you can get it quick. I pvp'd a little and I'm a casul, got a guy with havel's shield, gael's greatsword, vilhelm gear and mashed him with a great mace. It took like an hour and a half. If you pop a coin and then do runs and occasionally pvp you can do it! The shield absolutely rocks! Remember your shield matters ALOT more than armor/poise etc.
