Literally no point in upgrading shields in this game. Upgrades only grant increased atk but its not like youre ever gonna ATTACK with a shield.
The only other stat that gets increased is stability by an extra 7 at max rank.
At least in Dark Souls 2, you could upgrade shields and it would increase all the elemental block stats like fire, lighting, dark etc.

This shield, alongside it's DS1 counterpart, is a reference to the Kite Shield from Demon's Souls.
"A medium-sized metal shield, used by the soldiers of the comparatively more advanced region of Southern Boletaria.
The crest of the yellow dragon signifies the soldiers' low rank."
it temporarily blocks lava damage as well, but once that is used up it wont block lava dmg again until you rest at a bonfire
It does not have the highest fire damage block. Black Iron infused with a fire gem has 99.6%
