Small Shields are a type of Shield in Elden Ring. Small Shields usually weigh very little and give the least protection from attacks. They are often used by players who prefer parrying rather than blocking. Its lighter weight also makes it ideal for quick, agile characters with low equipment weight capacity. 

Most Small Shields can be modified by Ashes of War, allowing you to change their Skill and their damage reductions when blocking.

      The Ashes of War system makes these much less relevant. In previous games, small shields were bad at blocking, but were excellent for parrying. But now I can get a great parry skill for my kite shield so....why use these? Maybe for the weight. Yeah, I think they might be worth it for a fast roll build.

      • Anonymous

        Would be awesome if the max upgrade stats had a listing for guard boost, and not just the base form listings. Some shields seem to really catch up to others in terms of guard boost after a few upgrades, I just don't have the titanite to see how they compare past something like +6 right now. TBH wouldn't mind having guard boost listed in general for weapon stats, as there's a number of greatswords and ultra greatswords that have similar or better block stats than many small shields, for example.

        • Anonymous

          Now that you can put Carian Retalition on medium shields (which have 100% physical block, better guard boost, and only marginally higher weight and STR requirements) and get buckler level parries, small shields are basically invalidated. Considering that, I think they should give small shields full physical block or at least have them somewhere in the 90’s.

          • Anonymous

            I really think that other than parrying, small shields should have a useful effect.
            How about when used with a short sword or a dagger, giving a moveset similar to the valorhearth of ds3 ?

            • Anonymous

              Anyone know of any enemies that are good for practising the parry? I've never been all that great at it as far back as the first dark souls, The funny thing is though I had no trouble using the gun parry to set up visceral attacks in bloodborne. I was able to parry most enemies consistently so I don't entirely understand why I'm finding it this hard to do with a shield.

                There is an error in this table for the Iron Round Shield, but not on it's page
                It's physical defense is 71 not 55

                  Missing spiral horn shield, found in Litruna of the lakes next to the walking monument. Closest to the ruined monument Sight Of Lost grace right below the lake you will see a purple item. That is this shield.

                  It is a small shield that causes blood loos buildup. 8 str requirement, scales with e strength

                  • I most recently played Dark Souls Remastered before this game so take this with a grain of salt. But I have found the small shield parry window to be MUCH more forgiving and reliable over medium shield parry. With medium shields I think you are better off guarding and then doing a heavy attack for a counter into a riposte.
