    Grass Crest. Why? Cause I can pair it with MoC, Cloranthy, and Power Within. Ohyeah. twisted

    Overall best? Or Personal best? My builds are too varied to choose one, but I really like the Greatshield of Artorias. I would argue that the Grass Crest Shield is overall the best.

    warrior round shield has 88 magic res when fully upgraded magic+10, i think. overall i would say either heater or wooden shield are the best +15, i woul dsay fire effigy shield too, if only it had a fast parry.

    Theres really a shield for any situation, so it depends. Heater and grass crest are probably the most useful shields . SK shield is pretty good also. I made a Magic+10 grass crest shield, thats pretty good too. Havels shield is underrated. Personally i think going to 50 str is worth it.

    I always feel the Heater Shield is far better than none..., but c'est votre choix

    I don't really have a "best shield" in mind, as I switch them around a lot, but one of my personal favorite is the Eagle Shield. Come on now, 84 stability points and only weighs 6 units with 100% physical block !? And once the next update hits, it will be even better since I'm going to couple it with Karmic Justice (blows the dung out of anyone who stands in my way.)

    I've seen a huge increase in Heater Shield usage in Prepare to Die, for those who know changes, can guess why.

    List of good shields: Heater, Grass Crest, Crest, Blood, SK, Havel's.
    Of those my personal fave switches between blood and crest. However Grass Crest is probably the best shield because it is effectively half an extra ring slot. Its basically the mask equivalent of the shields.

    I've always been a fan of the Iron round shield despite is somewhat lacking stats. (Was, still is?) great with any weapon fast enough to capitalize on the deflection animation.

    I think the whole deflection thing is not as good as we think, from what ive seen it really doesnt seem that much different from the current console version. We will have to wait till some legit testing is done.

    Silver knight shield is my personal favorite. I use it for most of the game, with the exception of using the black knight, grass crest, crest, and blood shield. Depends on what boss I'm fighting and where I am in the game.

    Wth man? Do I have to say it?

    SANCTUS!

    Of course Grass Crest shield has been equipped the majority of my time with this Lordran world, but, Sanctus is always equipped on my faith builds as well as a few of my power within/lingering ring invasion builds.

    I also enjoyed pre patch crystal ring shield, effigy shield fire +10, and havels shield.

    Havel's Greatshield is ultimately the best shield in the game for strength builds, And i should know.
