Brass Shield is a Medium Shield in Elden Ring. The Brass Shield is a Shield that scales primarily with Strength. Medium Shields feature a good balance between defense and weight, which is great for most situations in combat. Although it may not be as light as a Small Shield which is good for agility and parrying, the Standard Shield works best at reducing damage and blocking.

 

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

Commonly employed in the Shattering.

 

Where to Find Brass Shield in Elden Ring

The Brass Shield Shield can be found at the following locations:

  • Dropped by Godrick Soldiers seen to be carrying it. (In 231 kills, 2 dropped. Approx. 0.8%)
  • Dropped by Raya Lucaria Soldiers seen to be carrying it.
  • An easy early location to farm begins at the “Gatefront” Site of Grace in the western part of main Limgrave, just north of the forest and just before Stormgate. Once you spawn in, turn around to face south east. There will be four Brass Shield carrying Godrick Soldiers in the Gatefront Ruins area that should be relatively easy to farm. Two are in a small fenced in area to the right of the road. One is on the road, carrying a horn. The last one is sitting next to a fire nearby. 
  • Nearly all the Raya Lucaria Soldiers who are gathered outside Raya Lucaria Academy are carrying one, making it a good place to farm for it if you missed getting it earlier.

 

Elden Ring Brass Shield Notes & Tips

  • Shield Skill: No Skill
  • This shield can be infused with Ashes of War and buffed with Magic and Consumables.
  • Sell Value: item value icon elden ring wiki guide 18px 100
  • Has the highest Guard Boost stat of all medium shields.
  • When upgraded enough, can surpass 65 Guard Boost, allowing it to reach 100 when combined with Barricade Shield and reducing blocking stamina costs to 0.
  • One of the top 3 most favored medium shields, the others perhaps being Banished Knight's Shield (68 guard boost, 6 weight) and Blue-Gold Kite Shield (66 boost, 5 weight). They even exceed some of the worse greatshields (Dragonclaw Shield, 67 boost, 13.5 weight, can't even change its ability). The brass is the strongest of the bunch, but perhaps not the most weight efficient, but the difference is only going to be by a point here or there anyways -- what's going to matter is the fact that you can Golden/Carian parry, and still have enough Boost to block.

The Brass Shield can be infused with Ashes of War. Click below for a list of all possible Ashes of War that can be applied to the medium shield.

      Besides the fingerprint shield (which is pretty broken) this is the best all around shield in the game. Very low attribute and weight requirement. Guard boost is 90% of great shield level and it can parry.

        Brass shield with Carian Retaliation or Golden Parry
        Min maxing funnies (parry everything, block everything)

        • Anonymous

          Respectfully, why does the best medium shield in the game drop from the first open world mob you see, while all the wooden soldier shields are unique items and have garbage stats

          • Anonymous

            Perhaps one of, if not the best shield in the game. Sure, it’s got a hefty weight, but it’s also sporting super good elemental resistances and guard boost, so I’d say it’s worth it. At the end of the day, it’s basically a greatshield that weights just a bit more than a medium shield.

              Finally got one while farming the gatefront encampment at base arcane for Hero (11)
              In between that I got 8 straight swords, 2 war picks, 5 helmets, 9 surcoats, 5 gauntlets, 6 boots, and more bolts than I care to count

              • Anonymous

                One of the top 3 most favored medium shields, the others perhaps being Banished Knight (68 guard boost, 6 weight) and Blue-Yellow Kite (66 boost, 5 weight). They even exceed some of the worse greatshields (Draconclaw Greatshield, 67 boost, 13.5 weight, can't even change its ability). The brass is the strongest of the bunch, but perhaps not the most weight efficient, but the difference is only going to be by a point here or there anyways -- what's going to matter is the fact that you can Golden/Carian parry, and still have enough Boost to block.

                  This is perfect for my valkyria fashioned pg... malenia's helmet, cleanrot chest and legs and tree gauntlets, along with dragon king's cragblade for pvp and godskin stitcher for pve.

                    Obtainable very early on but it's the heaviest medium shield. Go get the Beast Crest Heater Shield instead.

                      Brass shield is amazing when infused with fire or holy, it get the highest fire absorption out of any small and medium shield and second highest holy absorbtion while keeping good stability.

                        i farm two of these bad boys just so i can throw people off guard. two hand your weapon then use its WA, and swap to the other shield. it looks the exact same as going back to one handed and they wont expect you to then weapon art straight in their face whilst one handing.

                          I'd really like to run this in a faith-based hybrid build, but was told that effective use makes barricade shield mandatory, and having the shield skill override my RH weapon art is a total pain for me.

                          Is there a way to avoid the override?

                          Alternatively, can it work suitably with "No Skill" kept on it?

                            I've found a great farming spot at the 4th church of Marika. The mausoleum soldiers in front of it and the 3 walking down the road all carry this shield. I don't know if I've been insanely lucky or what, but I've gotten the shield within 5 kills both of the runs where I did it.

                              Is this useful in pvp? I heard you can get more parryframes than a buckler with certain AoWs on which is neat. But I also want to know whether this could block some hits before being guardbroken. Maybe I can block the lights fairly and need to dodge the heavys... maybe only for parrying... Anyone using med-shield for pvp please, share wisdom!

                                RIP sweet prince of a shield, you served so well for so long but 1.04 finally nerfed you to death. There is now no way to get to 100 guard boost with this shield, barricade + greatshield talisman even at +25 won't do it. This was the ticket for shield users without needing to spec a ton into strength, making a dex weapon + shield build viable.

                                  outclassed by the Blue-Gold Kite Shield IMO if youre concerned with min-maxing while needing a noteworthy blocking tool. 69 guard boost vs 65 of the Blue Gold Kite. 2 units heavier and 4 more strength required than the Blue Gold Kite.

                                    on the shield you can see the Elden Beast, from which six egg like things emerge. out of these come the six lords as droplets or at least it seems so. at the bottom of the shield is a heart shape which furthermore points to the Elden Beast as heart of the elden ring

                                      this at +25 standard let me block Malenia's entire water fowl move with 1/3 my stamina bar remaining. She engages, you press L1 and maintain until shes done.

                                      absolutely ridiculous lmao.

                                        This is just a lore observation, but I noticed at the center of the shield has a centipede on it, and it's synonymous with golden order fundamentalists, but the cursemark of death is also symbolized by a centipede

                                        • I'll echo much of the praise here. Arguably the ideal defensive package in terms of stability, physical block, elemental block, and weight, for anyone not planning to invest in the stat requirements of greatshields. Banished Knight Shield is highly competitive though, and can easily be justified for its lower STR requirement and fashion compatibility.

                                          Most builds that are interested in having a "block and counter" option can invest pretty easily in either Brass Shield or Banished Knight Shield (16/14 STR, respectively) and Scholar's Shield (12 INT). At +25, with the buff, this pushes their guard boost to the mid-80s, which is very resilient for this weight class and very approachable stat-wise even for non-STR based characters.

                                            I got this mid game in deeproot depths. Kinda unlucky but I got banished knight shield early. Time to switch now.

                                              -Easy to get.
                                              -Good weight.
                                              -Fantastic stability, compared to other medium shields and even greatshields.
                                              -100% physical block and good elemental block across the board.
                                              -Can take ashes.

                                              Safe to say that, in terms of everything listed above, this is the best shield for casual and high level play. Other shields may have better individual attributes, but this thing is all-around good or great at everything.

                                                They nerfed the scaling on this shield. Just upgraded one to +7 standard affinity and the guard boost only increased by 1 point total.

                                                  Easy to get, tho it will take a while. High guard boost, 100% physical, infusable, upgradable with regular Smithing Stones.

                                                  This shield has only one drawback: Its 7.0 weight. But chances are you got some points in Endurance and wont wield a heavy weapon while using this shield.

The brass shield, longsword, and straight sword they drop remain effective super far into the game (as a Wretch, I was even wearing their armor deep into Stormview, and I cleared out Limgrave, Weeping Peninsula, and most of Caelid first)

Hell, there's no reason to use some of the greatshields because of this thing, it's ridiculous. This is worse than the shield choices in Dark Souls 1.

                                                                                      • I was hesitant to upgrade any shields in the early game, especially after finding the Brass Shield pretty quickly and seeing that everything else at the time was junk compared to it. However, its undoubtedly the best medium shield for guard damage negation in the game, as well as on par and sometimes better than a handful of the great shields. The elemental guards are also significantly better than most. The only real downside is that most classes will need to add a few points of strength of their build to wield it. Though 16 is a sweet spot that will give you access to a variety of other armaments. The "no skill" slot makes this the perfect shield for someone who wants to utilize versatile ashes and playstyles while keeping a good guard up.

                                                                                                            • Updated with links and also farming numbers from my other post. I'm thinking that it's likely the drop rate is actually 1% and I was just unlucky. I'll update later if I'm feeling ambitious to do another farm xD.

                                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                                    2 hours 15 min farming gatefront mobs with the bronze heater sheild looking shield and got it
                                                                                                                    got 5 weapon shards, boots, 7 legs, 6 chests n 5 gloves n 5 swords i think is what i wrote from my phone (not sure why comment isnt showing?)

                                                                                                                    ok so optimal route:
                                                                                                                    spawn in at gatefront site of grace hang right of road kill those 2 with shields, tp back or run reset. this get 1 one sneak kill and an easy 1x1 fight with 1. went by way faster after that for me.

                                                                                                                    good luck, dunno if its worth it tbh, def not a "15 min farm" as fextra said it would be

                                                                                                                  Load more
