  • While it is a little heavy, it offers 100% Damage Reduction against both Physical and Fire damage, and can be upgraded to 80 Guard Break Reduction through Colorless Demon's Souls.
  • It offers mediocre Magic damage reduction, so carrying a spare shield with Magic protection is recommended.
  • This shield is a marginal upgrade compared to the Purple Flame Shield.
  • The Brushwood offers 10% more Fire damage Reduction, but weighs 5.0 units more and has slightly inferior Guard Break Reduction, assuming both shields are maxed out.
  • Depending on the player's priorities, however, this shield is arguably easier to fully upgrade.

Hidden Resistances[edit]

These resistances aren't reported by the stats in the weapon or in the player's total resistance. However, according to the game data for the weapon, these resistances are applied.

  • Name
  • Names displayed are according to the Atlus (NA) version of the game.
  • Name changes from the Asian version, if any, will appear in parentheses.
  • Damage
  • The Damage stat dictates how much damage the weapon does. The Damage stats for a weapon are X / Y / Z:
  • X is Physical Damage
  • Y is Magical Damage
  • Z is Fire Damage
  • Bleed, Poison and Plague are bonus damage over a period of 60 seconds. So, if a weapon has "Bleed 120", the victim will suffer 120 damage over 60 seconds, or 2 damage per second.
  • Each weapon has one or more physical damage types:
  • Normal
  • Blunt
  • Slashing
  • Piercing
  • Certain enemies are weak or strong against different types of damage types.
  • Durability
  • The durability of the weapon.
  • The effectiveness of the weapon will severely deteriorate when the durability falls below 30%.
  • Weight
  • The Weight of the weapon.
  • Note that carrying over 50% of your Equip Weight will reduce the speed of your rolls, while going over 100% will reduce your regular speed to walking and attempts to roll or backstep will leave you momentarily stunned.
  • Stats Needed
  • The Stats Needed determines how high various Stats must be in order to wield the weapon effectively.
  • The Requirement stats for an weapon are W / X / Y / Z:
  • Wielding a weapon without the required Strength and/or Dexterity will incur a penalty to the Physical damage of the weapon, while lower-than-required Magic and/or Faith will reduce the Magic damage of the weapon.
  • Also keep in mind that your character gains a 50% bo [[nus to Strength by wielding a weapon with both hands, thus reducing the actual Strength required. For example, a character with 18 Strength can wield a Great Axe (Requires 26 Strength) properly if the weapon is held with both hands.
  • (18 x 1.5 = 27)
  • Stat Bonuses
  • The Stat Bonuses rating indicates the level of bonus damage you do with the weapon, based on the associated Stat.
  • This rating can be S, A, B, C, D, or E (in order from most to least bonus for the associated skill).
  • Damage Reduction %
  • The Damage Reduction % of the weapon.
  • It dictates how much damage the weapon mitigates while blocking.
  • The Damage Reduction % stats for a shield are X / Y / Z:
  • X is Physical Damage
  • Y is Magical Damage
  • Z is Fire Damage
  • Guard Break Reduction
  • The Guard Break Reduction determines the amount of stamina expended to block an incoming attack.
  • A higher Guard Break Reduction also allows you to block stronger attacks without breaking guard and reduces the amount of stamina depleted from blocking attacks.
