  • "A rare shield depicting a blossoming flower, that soothes the weary heart of its bearer."

  • "What makes flowers beautiful, and why are we comforted when we gaze upon them? Sadly the flower depicted on this shield went extinct long ago."

Acquired From

  • Metal chest in Memory Of Vammar, just before the Giant Soul

Scholar of the First Sin
  • Now located in Sinner's Rise. After taking the lift to the lower level it will be on the left hand side when you enter the water, the Undead Aberration has been replaced with the Flexile Sentry in NG. (Actually the Flexile Sentry is there without NG+)

Hints and Tips:

  • Infusing with Poison Stone gains 100% poison resistance (projectile and weapons only), compare to Poison Moon Butterfly Shield, this one has better defense, yet difficult to inflict poison with its bashing.
  • Stamina Regeneration is roughly equal to 5%
  • Stamina Regeneration Stacks with both Green Blossom and Chloranthy Ring variants.
  • Stacks with other Stamina Regeneration Shields.
  • Light enough for a mage to use.
  • This is one of the community shield design contest winners selected by From and Namco Bandai.
