Use the ladder to reach the Old Wolf of Farron bonfire. This is where you can pledge your allegiance to the Watchdogs of Farron Covenant.
  2. Next to this bonfire is an elevator that can take you even higher. You’ll see a Stray Demon to your left, once you’re on top. The path toward the Dragon Crest Shield will be on your right.
  3. There is a small crack in the bridge’s fence, next to the closed gate. Use it to jump down toward the small balcony-like structures. Keep following this route until you reach the other part of the bridge.
  4. The Dragon Crest Shield’s exact location is on the other side of the gate. Get close to the dead dragon and loot it.
