The Sacred Shield build focuses on Mohgwyn's Sacred Spear and the unique Bloodboon Ritual skill. This weapon does physical and fire damage and causes blood loss buildup. The White Mask will further increase your damage when blood loss is applied. This build also uses the Flame, Grant Me Strength incantation as it buffs physical and fire damage which are the two main damage types of this weapon. You will primarily attack while holding your shield up—as Mohgwyn's Sacred Spear is a piercing weapon, you can attack while still holding your guard. Bloodboon Ritual is a massive AOE attack that causes explosions of blood. Carian Filigreed Crest reduces the cost of the Bloodboon Ritual skill, while the Shard of Alexander talisman increases its damage.

  • Primary Stat: Arcane, Strength.
  • Secondary Stat: Vigor, Endurance Mind.
  • Weapons: Mohgwyn's Sacred Spear, Godslayer's Seal.
