Discount llewellyn, but still oh so good. Available from the first real area of the game, if this drops you're set if you wanted a light small shield. While it doesn't give the same defenses as llewellyn, the stability is alittle higher and can still soak up more damage than you think whilst being 1 unit lighter than the llewellyn. 8/10 would farm again.
Easily one of my favorite shields. I use it 24/7 for parrying and isn't half bad if you're just trying to block with low weight. Also, you can get it at the start of the game, so this makes early game bosses like sage and watchers quite easy. (granted you can do enough damage and can parry well.)
I looted this basically after 2 minutes I was on the high wall, shure, after I've fount other fancier shield, but in numbers and effectivness, at least till now, at the end of the day i end using this.
You can parry with a Katana? How does that work? I have never seen that before, does it have to be a specific Katana? I have never really used one in battle, just to check out. I know enemies parry me with the Falchion but I did not think it was possible for players to parry with the Falchion. Is that possible as well?
