- Starting equipment for the Deprived class.
- Found in the Undead Settlement. Taking the right-side path from the burning tree with the praying Evangelist and Peasant Hollows, break some crates to the right before entering the stable area, to reveal a hidden path. Traverse the rooftops on the left, killing the Thralls along the way, to find it on a corpse before the Cage Madman.
With poor defenses, pitiful stability and the inability to parry, the Plank Shield competes for the title of the worst shield in the game. As it is intended purely as bare minimum equipment for the Deprived class, any possible replacement will most likely serve as a pure upgrade.
Reinforced with standard Titanite.
