Lockout

The Ringed City: Just past the Earthen Peak Ruins bonfire, to the right of the first flying hollow is a shack. Down the path to the left is a corpse with this shield. It is at the very end of the path near the cliff's edge

      Greatshield + Carthus Blood Ring + Caestus to spam the leaping Ghrus renders all PVE trivial. Seriously you can beat the game easily on any run with just these three items and whatever straight sword.

        Havel Greatshield Location31 Mar 2016 07:36  

        For those that haven't found it yet, you can get Havel Greatshield from Archdragon Peak, when you get to the bonfire next to The Nameless King just go outside to the area with all the snake dudes (not the way with the stone lizards) in one of the broken tower parts you'll find a walkway, follow it into the next bit, it'll be a small balcony with one stone lizard, there are some ladders on this balcony that leads up to the roof, on the roof you will find Havel Himself, defeat him and you'll get his shield and the Dragon Tooth Great Club.
