In Game Description
The dark silver shield of the Vinland Legacy
Known as the oldest of metals, the dark silver is said to purify dark malice. It protects the user from all magics.
There is only one way to obtain this shield per game.
- Kill Garl Vinland
- increases Magic defense
- decreases Magic damage
Magic damage penalty only affects Spells
Blessed, Moon, Crescent and all weapons with Magic damage will not suffer any Magic damage penalty1
- penalty to Magic Damage does not affect Faith Spells such as God's Wrath
- generates the same aura as the Rune Shield, Rune Sword and the Ring of Magical Dullness
The Dark Silver Shield tends to replace other auras with its own. This can be confusing at times, but your buffs are still in effect

The Damage Reduction % stats for shields are X / Y / Z:
