this was mainly taken from the wiki just figured I would put it here since that would prevent the eventual hundreds of topics asking how to join covenants

The shield you get from Watchdogs of Farron is called "Greatshield of Artorias" in the English version and shares a similar effect. The literal translation is "Wolf Knight's Greatshield", though.

Pretty disappointed with covenants overall. The rewards kind of suck.

I'm glad they are mostly cosmetic/gear pieces. I don't think anyone enjoyed dealing with half the covenants in DS1/2 but you didn't want to miss their rewards.
