    Higher resistance to its elemental category. A fire shield will do well against fire attacks.

    Should warn you, however, no upgrade paths except for regular and crystal, improve on a shield's base stability. A +10 fire shield will always have its original stability rating.

    Thats why you should instead seek out a Black Knight sheild +5, which has 71 stability and 95% fire resistance. Not even a +10 fire shield can match that.

    Yup, BKS is a great fire shield. I can't think of one better.

    The wiki section on shields should have information on the stats for all shields along all upgrade paths, making it easy for you to take a gander and compare shields.

    For example, comparing the BKS to the Fire Effigy Shield +10.

    The BKS has about 11% more fire res than the Effigy, but the Effigy has more magic defense and an outstandingly good lightning defense, giving very balanced resistances all around. However, it also has less than 100% phys res and has low stability, so it comes down to how you like your shields to perform happy
