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

Red Rust 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.

 

Acquired From

  • Sold by Head of Vengarl, after you defeat his body, for 4500 Souls.

 

Hints and Tips:

  • On the shield are 80 carvings from Vengarl
  • Shield has very low defenses vs. anything that isn't physical, poison, or bleed, even at +5.
