Hylian Shield
Knight's Shield
Soldier's Shield

This page will have all the Shields in the game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.


  • Durability (DUR) affects how much damage you can block with the Shield before it breaks.
  • Shield Guard determines how much less damage your shield will take from attacks; if the Shield Guard is high enough compared to the enemy attack power, it will only take a single point of damage, and with ratings lower than the strength, it'll simply reduce the shield damage. It also affects how likely it is that the shield will knock the enemy off balance or disarm them when you block a normal melee attack. If the Shield Guard rating is much higher than the enemy attack strength, it can stagger them as if though the attack were parried automatically.
  • Parry Power As described in the Nintendo Guide, this is the damage you do when you perform a parry action. Only certain spiked shields like the Lynel Shield will damage the enemy when you parry.
  • "Where to get" is the region where the Shield is most commonly found; Or monster that drops it; or if it's unlocked by an amiibo.

Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • The Hylian Shield has a very high durability, but is NOT unbreakable
    • However you can buy another Hylian Shield for 3000 Rupees, but only if the original was broken.

It can be found in Tarrey Town by talking to Granté. You need to go to the building near the ores to find Granté at the very top.
