Found in Farron Keep. On the bridge above the Old Wolf of Farron bonfire, turn right and head towards the closed gate, then drop off the destroyed railing to the right. Navigate the platforms to reach the other side, the shield will be found on a corpse near the dead wyvern, amongst scattered Crystal Lizards.
While it serves as a good general-purpose medium shield due to its moderate weight and stability, all-round elemental defense and 100% physical damage block, it is generally outclassed by the Black Knight Shield, which possesses significantly more stability while still having comparable Fire absorption. The only advantage that the Dragon Crest Shield holds over the Black Knight Shield is that it does not require significant investment in Strength to wield and is not overly heavy, making it useful for builds that do not invest heavily in Strength or Vitality.
