As with its predecessor, the Porcine Shield's performance is mediocre at best. It has respectable physical resistance and stability, but much worse elemental resistances than most shields of similar weight.
Compared to other shields that utilize Shield Bash, it is a poor choice as it is beaten in every regard by most shields, with the exception of the Plank Shield. This is on top of the fact that an Undead Bone Shard must be sacrificed to acquire it.
- Judging by the description and performance, the shield may be considered a "joke" weapon, similar to the Handmaid's Ladle in Dark Souls II.
Reinforced with Titanite.
