I was playing Dark Souls 2 recently and noticed an odd symbol below my stamina bar (where my ring status effects usually are). It appeared to be a white shield in a red square.
I have played the game before and have never come across this symbol for 4 different characters.
I unequipped all my gear and it was still there. I had not used any consumables either.
I did a bit of looking around and found a similar thing which turned out to be a feature that set up an auto walk after pressing a designated key.
Note: I use a controller, the only time I use the keyboard is when I'm typing in my characters name.
Are there more than 1, and if so, what do they all mean?
