    Spider Shield for pvp

    Post by RANT on Thu Jul 05, 2012 6:40 pm

    since everyone has a damn bow with poison arrows now i started using it and i gotta say it annoys the crap out of bow users since it has poison and toxin protection and 100% phys too with good fire res but crappy magic res but really good stability for a med shield. so far im loving it and have have been succesful with it, anyone else out there using it too? also before anyone else says grass crest is better because of the stamina regen just stop lol i have green blossoms for that or moc.

    I've read here, on several occasions, that the spider shield's poison resistance does not work in pvp. Are you confirming this as untrue?

    it is untrue, i kept getting hit by poison arrows and didnt do anything, billy can confirm it since i fought with him a couple of times. it protect against poison and toxin. it even says it on the shield.

    maybe youre thinking of artoria's shield? i heard people talk about how its spposed to protect you from poison and it doesnt since ive seen people get poisoned while using artoria's shield.

    Idk, ive used it and still gotten poisoned. It disappointed me,greatly. It seems to slow the rate the status builds, but it doesnt block it completely. I really like that shield too, i used it as pretty much my main shield on that pyro build with the winged spear.

    It's a good shield, and is good in FC as you can't BS them without the "OMGZ, U R SOOOOO B@@@@@D" speech, so yeah, it's a good shield silly

    I used poison arrows a lot in Sen's with my troll build. I ran into a few people using the spider shield, and it always took me a few arrows before I realized that I wouldn't poison them! (Although, you can still poison them if they're not blocking...)

    But for the minor annoyance that being poisoned causes in a duel, is it really worth your shield? It's a decent shield, but I feel that among the other options you have, picking the shield that blocks poison isn't the greatest attribute you could have in PvP. If you're going to pick an unconventional shield for its resistances, I'd go with the bloodshield. That bleed resistance, in my opinion, is a much greater asset than blocking poison.

    I’d always have moss to use. It’s a lot easier than to switch shield all the time or go with the spider shield.

    in all the time ive pvp'd i think only only been bled once, you can do the roll escape thing that makes bleed weapons useless. i like the way the shield looks but i think im gonna stick to my beloved heater shield adn dark hand.

    I don't get bled very often, but it does happen more often than getting poisoned! And I just ignore the poison when it happens, whereas I roll around a lot when I'm getting bled to try and roll through it. Most of the time I manage to do it, but sometimes I miss and take the hit.

    I'm also a fan of the Heater, myself. If I used a shield, it would be that one! But for a long time my shield of choice has been the notched whip. silly

    i love the notched whip, you can do a lot of thing with it, parry, attack parry spammers since it cant be parried too bad you can riposte or bs(strangling animations would fit perfectly). i guess ill just have it in my inventory for archers since i only have the heater shield and grass crest on my inventory with about 5 weapons i use the most.

    The spider shield has a lot of content than I question as to why it is there in the first place. I will say that the sheiks is excellent at what it does, and as you can find two if not a bandit in total (Depths, which interestingly has a eat with a battle ace in his eye, and the bandit corpse on the drake bridge).

    Looking at the sheild, I question why the bandit, out of everyone, has it. Still, the stability, resistance, and the poison degration qualities have made me use it more than once in the past. Out of all the starting classes, the bandit has the best sheild to block and take hits, and Tge sheild can still be useful after NG++. PvP wise, the sheild has saved my hide more than once, which I can say I have a sense of respect for it... I still prefer the skull lantern and dark hand as sheilds, as well as Effigy.

    i would use the skull lantern more if it could parry, that thing is awesome though. effigy shield is one of my favourite shields and imo the coolest looking shield in the game. ive been invading as a bandit cosplay recently which is the reason i upgraded it and i found out about the poison arrows res.

    If the skull lantern could parry, I would drop the Dark Hand straight away. sadly, I ask for other things from it, so I can not say much.

    I love the spider shield +15. 70 stability at 3.0 weight is nice, and its resistances aren't bad 'cept for magic. I know it blocks poison from arrows, and am almost positive it also works on poison knives and large clubs. Toxic is a problem though, even in PvE (like the engorged hollows in PW).
