- — In-game description
The Knight's Shield is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a shield with a defense rate of 40. Its sturdy metal construction makes it quite durable. It was favored by the Knights of Hyrule that served the Royal Family of Hyrule and has retained it durability over the century since the fall of Hyrule Castle during the Great Calamity, with the only signs of ware being a few scratches. It is occasionally wielded by enemies such as Lizalfos.
While not as strong as the Royal Shield or Hylian Shield, its durability is still greater than the Royal Guard's Shield. Its metal construction makes it superior to the Soldier's Shield which has a wooden core, so it will not burn when exposed to fire or areas of high temperature like Death Mountain, though is dangerous to use during thunderstorms as the metal attracts lightning strikes.
Link can occasionally obtain a Knight's Shield by dropping a Rusty Shield in front of a Rock Octorok when it is sucking it air. The Rock Octorok will chew the shield and spit out the Rusty Shield which will be restored to its original state. By doing this the Rusty Shield may be refreshed into a Knight's Shield.
