Absolute garbage of a shield.
>Weights more than Curse Ward Greatshield
>Stability of 64 of +5, which is just 1 stability more than +5 Silver Knight Shield - a shield that weights almost 3 times less than this
>Weapon Art deals no damage, only staggers the opponent instead of knocking them back and provides a buff of poise and damage reduction for a very short time. Maybe it breaks through enemy shields with relative easy but i wouldn't know because nobody uses shields in PvP and those few who do have enough brains to not have them up when you use the WA.
The only good thing to say about this shield is 90% fire damage reduction which makes it very useful against pyromancers, but it doesn't justify the ridiculous weight - and by extension vitality requirements - of the thing while it has an absolutely pathetic stability like that.
FromSoft once again with their top-notch balance and weapon design, woooooooooo.
