      Hmm... Curious that a “master of the wolf’s blood of Farron” would ever consider wielding a shield at all, let alone having one named in his likeness. We all know what happened to Hawkwood regarding this very thing, so...

      Would anyone care to explain how this came to be, or is this just a lapse in loremastering?

        They really didn't pay attention to divine protection of this shield against dark damage. In the first Dark Souls, this shield protected Sif from the endless darkness of the abyss. But now it only deflects 68% of the damage dealt by dark. It should have been around 90% or more. Wouldn't you agree?

          All this hate for the lack of parry and here I am, wondering why nobody has pointed out that pairing it with the Farron Greatsword solves that problem pretty neatly

            So this shield basically is only useful against Friede and is pretty crap otherwise. Even the OWCS which you get by the same faction is better offhanded, since you can easily procc it even with a SS in a bossfight. It would have been great with a parry, or something actually usefull. Hell, even shieldbash seems better because you just have better options for a WA shield.

                          Good shield, only thing that I find annoying is that resistance bars show up whenever you equip it. Not really that big deal regardless though.

                            Head of loot drop, Gold snake ring of more loot drop +3, ice rapier of crystal loot drop. Farmed for 2 hours, done.

                            People its not that hard, just dedicate some tiny bits of hours on this and you'll get it. I mean, Ds3 got hundreds of hours of pleasure, I think you can offer TWO of those hundred for a shield. Farron ruin bonefire, 3 gru, kill, back to fire, kill, repeat.

                              If you have this shield and backup your save file, you could give it to players endlessly.
                              Like a kind dark souls fairy ^^

                                Wear all available + luck equipment ( symbol of Avarice, crystal sage rapier in off hand, gold serpent ring). Start at Abyss Watchers bonfire, kill the five poison gurus at the entrance, rinse repeat. About an hour 1/2 farming you should get 30 snodgrass.
