After doing a bit of searching, it seems like it might be impossible to do a full, direct backup to a network-mounted share like the one provided by a Drobo & Droboshare. Is there any way around this, or is it part of the limitations of using a network mount?

I know I can manually run ditto but I was really hoping to use my new Droboshare in a similar way to how I used the Drobo when it was connected directly to my machine.

It's not something we can do: you cannot preserve all the metadata/ownership/etc you need over a network to a NAS. That why SuperDuper! -- and Time Machine, for that matter -- use images when writing over a network.
