The Silver Shield is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is an ornate Zora shield that Link can obtain and equip. It is metallic thus attracts lightning during thunderstorms and sinks in water though its metal composition allows Link to grab it utilize the Magnesis Rune. One spawns along with a Zora Sword on the northwest bridge of Zora's Domain which will occasionally respawn when Link returns to Zora's Domain after leaving the Lanayru province. Another can be found inside a floating wooden Treasure Chest over Lake Hylia which can be lifted out of the water using the Cryonis Rune. Link can also obtain one from a treasure chest in the waters west of the Raft on Eventide Island. Link can use the Raft or Cryonis Rune to reach it and use the Magnesis Rune to pull it out. As it is located in the area of the island, it is best to leave it for the Side Quest "Stranded on Eventide" as it can be useful shield during the quest due to its defensive strength and durability. However if Link wishes to keep it, he can obtain it before setting foot on Eventide and starting the Side Quest or after completing the side quest and revealing the island's Shrine. One also appears inside a sunken treasure chest within Lake Akkala in the underwater ruins north of Akkala Falls.

Its base defense stat is 18, though it has the same base durability as the Gerudo Shield and replacements can be easily obtained. Additionally a Shield Guard Up bonus can increase its defense while Durability Up increases its durability.
