- Rarely dropped by Enhanced Undead in Sinner's Rise.
- Common drop by the Bell Keepers in Belfry Sol and Luna.
With average physical defense and poor elemental defenses, the Bell Keeper Shield is unremarkable for the most part. The exception is its excellent magic defense and Stability coupled with its low weight and strength requirement, which makes it a solid choice for any player when magic damage is an issue.
It is inferior to the Magic Shield in terms of direct damage reduction, and is arguably harder to get. However, it has marginally better protection against Status Effects and ties with various shields for the highest Stability among the Small Shields.
