What do you guys think? Just discovered this bad boy; hadn't even thought of using boss souls to make a shield.

Anyone have experience with this one? How is it? (And how's it look? I can't find a picture anywhere...)

My personal favorite shield, 88 stability, highest in the game.

Nice. Can it be upgraded? Demon Titanite, maybe?

It can be upgraded, but it's not going to do anything outside of increasing it's attack, I think.

Havel's Greatshield is probably the best shield there is, but that thing is ****ing heavy. Not recommended unless you're gonna wear Havel's Ring or you enjoy moving slow.
The sentence below is true.

Aside from its godly stability, it's clearly the best looking shield in the game, I use it with True Greatsword of Artorias, now if only there was Artorias armor set, I'm sure that would be on a whole new level of epic.

Supposedly it also lets you block some status effects, but I've never tested it.

I actually prefer the +15 hallow soldier shield. Its 85 (86?) stability and comes without the weight of the greatshields. Thats just for blocking though. i also use the other shields for respective elemental defense.

Negative on that.

Accoring to the official guide the +15 stability for eagle shield is 84.

Highest stability among shields is Artorias acording to the guide. But it's upgraded stats aren't shown there lol...
