This comes from Hard Mode. As an interesting bit of trivia it also has the highest armor of any shield in the game. Still not for tanking though :)

Not entirely true. Armor is determined by the item level, so this will have the same amount of armor as other 239 shields. And there's currently only one other, the Bulwark of(f) Algalon.And yes, this is hardmode. Wowhead doesn't differentiate between hardmode and non-hardmode in their loot tables, it just dumps it all into one. To get an idea of the drop rate (don't look at the 1,9%): Hardmode gives you 1 239 item every time. There are 6 of them, so that's roughly a 1/6 chance of getting this, assuming they all have the same drop chance.
Yeah, one of those stats that, as a Shaman, I look at and I kinda laugh because I'm loaded with all this armor but it really does nothing to help my heals or spells. Hooked onto my arm is this hunk of metal that gives like 8k armor and it's useless, lol.
