- 1.5% drop rate by shield-wielding Hollow Infantry in the Forest of Fallen Giants and No-man's Wharf.
- 1% drop rate by shield wielding Skeletons.
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.
