does anyone know what the best shield is.

Probably Havel's shield. However, I would recommend a silver knight shield (SKS). It has the highest stability on a parry shield at +5.

It really depends on the build. The Eagle Shield is pretty darn good for it's low stat requirements and can be compared to the Steel Shield from Demon's Souls. Really darn good but overlooked because of that slightly better shield that requires higher stats.

I've been tanking bosses with the Eagle Shield somewhat successfully.

I'm a fan of SKS too. I wish it were cooler-looking, though :(

I've been using the Crest Shield for it's 100/80 Phys/Magic resistance. There may be something better, but I like it.

I'm going to follow him home.....kill his whole family.

If you're rolling a low strength character, then the Eagle shield is your best bet for tanking. Can't parry with it though, so you may want to use the Silver Knight Shied instead if. The Crest Shield is good too, especially against magic dealing enemies, but it has relatively low stability so it's not great for tanking.
Killing's the first thing humans learned. And a good thing we did, or we'd be dead, and the Mudcrabs would own the earth.

How much stability does a maxed out eagle shield and a maxed out silver knight shield have? Both only go up to +5 right?
