Base Shield Guard
"The Koroks made this shield specifically for Hylians. It's made from the finest hard wood of trees that only grow in the Korok forest, so it's sturdier than it looks."
The Forest Dweller's Shield is a shield found in Breath of the Wild. It has a base Shield Guard of 30, and can be found in various locations in Hyrule, but they are most common in the Korok Forest. The shield is made entirely from wood, meaning it will catch fire if it is brought in close proximity with a flame.
This shield must be equipped at all times whilst attempting the Test of Wood Shrine Quest, or Link will be disqualified and have to attempt it again from the beginning.
This shield has the highest stats of any wooden shield in the game. It's also among the rarest shields in the game, with one given during the Test of Wood shrine quest, one given in a chest, and an extra one in Master Mode; a third shield can be found inside a small crevice to the left of Chio prompted against a root of the Great Deku Tree alongside a Forest Dweller's Spear. While the two first locations are one-time obtainment, the shield in the crevice respawns every Blood Moon.
