The Foot Soldier Shield is a small shield in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A small shield used by Drangleic foot soldiers.
A clearly makeshift shield that does not offer significant defense. The only advantage of this shield is that it makes parrying easier.



The Foot Soldier Shield performs poorly across the chart, having extremely low durability. Despite this, it has relatively high Magic resistance and has the extended parry animation of the Buckler, making it more effective at parrying.

However, the Buckler is superior in almost every way, although it requires a small amount of Dexterity and has somewhat lower Magic resistance.
