The last two shields from the Dark Souls 2 community contest have been revealed
Now that we’ve seen shields 1-4 from the community contest to design Dark Souls II shields, it’s only logical to show off the final two. Well here they are and they are real beauts. To recap, FromSoftware had a contest early last year asking fans to design shields that they will then pick to actually show in the game. On top of all that, the French blacksmiths Armédia are actually designing real version of them. THAT, and the winners get a free copy of the collector’s edition of the game. Pretty damn sweet if you ask me.
With all that said, let’s look at these shields. The first is the “Blossom Kite Shield” designed by Illim. A beautiful shield with a rippling rose emerging from the center. The flavor text says: “A rare shield depicting a blossoming flower, that soothes the weary heart of its bearer. What makes flowers beautiful, and why are we comforted when we gaze upon them? Sadly, the flower depicted on this shield went extinct long ago.”
The second, is the “Watchdragon Parma” designed by Charles Collier. This shield shows an intertwined black and white serpent in an almost optical illusion pattern. The flavor text says: “A shield decorated by intertwined dragons. The black and white contrast depicts the ebb and flow of the fate of all things living, and the serpentine dragons that watch over’ the march of time.” This shield can also be seen on the cover of Dark Souls II: Into the Light comic.
Well that’s in for the shields. Huge congrats to all the winners, I can’t wait to see these bad boys in game.
