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

Shield of the Insolent 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.

      According to the table, the shield goes from 75 dark resist at Regular +0 to 47.5 at Regular +10. Something's fucky, is it legit that this shield LOSES resist for upgrading? And also loses resist when infused with dark?

        Also very notable is that this shield seems to have spell parry! Playing in SOTFS, the shield's giving off the brief flash of a white aura that other spell parry shields do.
