With the RNG the way it is, +4 AC is too much, especially with how easy it is to get shield proficiency on characters who do not attack using their own attack rolls or other casters.

Bounded Accuracy - the way that accuracy works in D&D5e - is definitely not compatible with a +4 bonus to AC - that's on top of armour calculations, of course. A Shield that grants +4 to AC is a Very Rare item after all. Then, we can also mention that D&D 5e is not all that compatible with just doling out penalties - like a -2 penalty to attack - in the majority of its workings. It just increases unnecessary complexity.
