The Ghru Rotshield is barely serviceable as a shield, and lacks a Parry skill, making it one of the worst defensive shields available to the player. While it possesses high stability for a Small Shield and has virtually nothing in the way of requirements to wield, it is still a poor option for use as a shield.
Instead, its purpose is to serve as an offensive tool, blocking damage and bashing opponents in an attempt to inflict them with Poison. Depending on the environment and the weaponry wielded in the right hand, it can be used in unconventional ways.
Reinforced with regular Titanite.
