Elden Ring: Brass Shield, All Details

The Brass Shield is a Medium Shield that scales based on Strength. Medium Shields have a good defense-to-weight ratio, making them ideal for most hostile environments. Despite the fact that it is not as light as a Small Shield, this Shield is best in reducing damage and blocking.

On the larger side for medium-sized shield, the face has been covered in brass.
Commonly employed in the Shattering.

Players who rely on strong guarding to make up for their slow hands JK, you’ll want to get your hands on a good shield like the Brass Shield as soon as possible. You’ll already have a decent shield if you began out as a Vagabond or Confessor though. Even these strong classes, can benefit from looking for this specific shield as well if they wanted to.

You can grab the Brass Shield early on in the Limgrave region. This is the initial region where you will start your trip to Stormveil Castle. A large number of troops wearing green and crimson insignias and wielding a shield will be encountered along the way. The Godrick Soldiers are the ones who can drop these bad boys.

IMPORTANT NOTE: After eliminating the shield-bearing guards in the ruins, use the Site of Lost Grace to reset the zone and make opponents respawn. According to other players, doing it at night increases the possibility of getting a drop. You can boost your chances of getting this shield by consuming silver pickled fowl foot while farming at the Gatefront Ruins.
