Standard Shields Strike / Parry
Enchantable:
Yes/No
No Special

Bone Shield is a Standard Shield in Dark Souls 2. Standard Shields can be used not only to block an enemy but to parry their attack as well. This allows a riposte, a free attack by the player for a high amount of damage. Enemy attacks can be interrupted with a parry (pressing the Strong Attack button for the shield) and requires practice to learn the timing.

Hints and Tips:

  • Generally, this shield is inferior to Drakekeeper's Shield while both having the same weight.
  • Despite being inferior, the relatively low strength and dex makes it a good shield for low level builds or casters when two handed.
  • Not to confuse with Cursed Bone Shield, a small shield capable of spell parrying, this shield cannot parry spells.
