Which shield is considered the best? - Dark Souls
Honestly I think the best all purpose shield is the Tower/Caduceus Kite Shield. It's not flashy but it more than gets the job done: 3lb, 100/30/70/50, 72 Stability. I don't like using the Balder Shield at all, personally. For 1lb less I can have the Kite, which has 10% better Magic and Fire protection and only 3 less stability.
