Shields are defensive equipment in Bloodborne. Compared to previous From Software games, shields aren't as effective in Bloodborne, but they can be useful in some cases.

Wooden Shield
Reduces all damage to a small degree.
Cathedral Ward
Loch Shield
Greatly reduces non-physical damage.

          I actually used this to beat Rom the Vacuous05 Jul 2016 14:39  

          With the Wooden Shield and Tontrius, I went in reluctantly for a try at Rom. I have to say it was probably one of the easier fights with it since the spiders did much less damage to me and the arcane missiles he shoots also did quite a bit less. It was very helpful although damage is still taken.
