Small Shields Strike / Parry
No Enchantment No Special

“Small metal shield with protrusions.

Small shields are very light and easy to use,
but have low stability when attacked.

The protrusions on the center of the shield
are designed to brush attacks aside and
make parrying easier.”

 

Target Shield is a Small Shield in Dark Souls 2. Small 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:

  • The chest containing the target shield can be destroyed through the wall by the wide swings of the bosses during the fight, resulting in a pile of rubbish in place of the shield.
