This definitely smells like an easter egg for Blasphemous.

Adds 25% Madness and Sleep when switched to

The madness and sleep is resistance or is it build up inflicted on you?
By Anonymous
#16465434
It increases your resistance to sleep and madness, but when you get the new resistance it is already "used up" (it increases your current madness/sleep and the max by the same amount), so you need to wait for it to drain. You can test that this is not a problem by almost maxing out Madness with an incantation, and then equipping the shield. It will not cause you to go mad, as the difference between your current madness and max madness is the same.

Throwback to the old spiked shield from Demon's Souls. Nice!

Does this shield cause blood loss buildup by just equiping it? Or do you need to strike and enemy with it?
By Anonymous

It seems like you only need to have it equipped. I triggered blood loss with a dagger without bloodloss by having this in the left hand.

What if you 2 hand a weapon and have shield on your back? Do you receive the blood loss build up?

March 7 anon lied, or it was patched. Tested 12 swings with non-build up weapon on a random soldier, didn't bleed.

The building is in the center and you need to jump the wall with you’re horse
By Anonymous
#16495422
No horse required, if you're in multiplayer there's a jump along the wall.

Can jump up the broken wall without horse

How much focus does this boost?
By Anonymous

This shield most likely references Irina, a blind maiden we meet very close to the shield location. Hyetta appearing after Irina's death would explain the "reborn" part of the item description as well.

This shield was shaped after someone who's already dead

Doubt it, the shield was probably made way before Irina's "death". Also, she was killed by a misbegotten, not the Briars of Sin spell; you can tell by the cleaver next to her corpse.

I’m pretty sure this is a reference to the game Blasphemous. It shares a similar ascetic to the Sword of the Guilty, which has a person carved in the hilt, the sword is also covered in similar thorns to this shield.

Lmao. Where do these types get the defacto confidence to call things out like this like they're some sort of fact when they are pure conjecture bordering on imagination exercises? Funny stuff. Keep I coming

This shield sits horizontally when being worn on the back, which looks pretty ugly. :(
Really wish it sat with the face standing upright.
