This is my favorite shield so far at SL160. 90% physical is pretty good. The high well-rounded elemental defenses are worth it. The item discovery is great, your drop rates in practice will be almost as good as Jester's Hat + Watchdragon Parma + Rusted Coin. Let's say normal drop is ~20% kills of a specific enemy, I would get ~35% with this shield, and ~45% with stacking item discovery items.
You can get this pretty early in the game in SOTFS, just get to Heide's Tower of Flame straight from Pursuer fight, struggle a bit with the knights (use a strike weapon like ~Mace+5), lure the big-a$$ dragon closer to the middle of the platform and kill with a bow from down the stairs. Dragon can be poisoned if you're impatient. There ya go use this awesome shield for the other half of the game and upgrade it primarily for more shield poise and physical defense.
