Coil Shield is a Small Shield in Elden Ring. The Coil Shield is a Shield that scales primarily with Strength. Small Shields usually weigh very little and have the least form of protection from attacks. They are often used by players who prefer parrying rather than blocking. Its lighter weight also makes it ideal for quick, agile characters with low equipment weight capacity.

Armament designed for gladitorial combat. rises above its peers as a particularly showy specimen.
The sculpted bronze snake is a poisonous breed, boosting the weilder's resistance to poison.

 

Where to Find Coil Shield in Elden Ring

The Coil Shield can be found at the following location:

  • The Coil Shield is located on a body in Volcano Cave, northeast of the Ninth Mt. Gelmir Campsite Site of Grace in Mt. Gelmir. From the cave grace, head into the large open room. From there, take the right-most tunnel (northwest) and follow it to the end. Drop down onto the small cliff below. Turn around and go into the tunnel. The shield will be on a body in the room ahead. Note: There will be an ambush of enemies, so you may want to clear the room first. [Elden Ring Map here]

 

Elden Ring Coil Shield Notes & Tips

  • Shield Skill: Viper Bite
    • From stealth this shield skill does not appear to cause aggro until after poison is applied (full buildup). Once poison is applied, it then does a burst of damage, and the enemy is aggroed.
  • This shield cannot be infused with Ashes of War nor buffed with Magic and Consumables.
  • Increases Immunity by 40.
  • Sell Value: item value icon elden ring wiki guide 18px100

      You know, if coding wasn't incredibly hard for small indie game company, this would be really fun to use with a poison moth flight weapon thanks to the speed buffs. BUT because coding is incredibly hard for a little small time poverty stricken indie game company we have to go through the tedious process of two handing to gain access to the ash of war you want. I refuse to do this because it's idiotic. Why can't we have two dedicated keys for ashes of war one for each hand? ask small indie game company. I guess they ran out of buttons on the controller or whatever excuse you want to use to defend your godhood company for not putting in this incredibly easy quality of life feature into the game. It is what it is. Results being this never being used in any circumstance outside of challenge runs ever. Better stick to mimic tear and RoB it really is what it is fr. Hope it gets added and fixed when the DLCs come out (it wont)

        seems to do instant damage to crystallians without needing to crack their armour first. discovered using my poison moth flight build /w nagakiba, bloodflame blade on weapon, mushroom crown, both talismans that boost dmg when poison+rot+bleed in viccinity

          i've been cracking a lot of medium shields with this. anybody know how much stam damage it does against shields?

            the one in-game- on xbox at least- has a different description:
            "Armament designed for gladitorial combat. rises above its peers as a particularly showy specimen.
            the sculpted bronze snake is a poisonous breed, boosting the weilder's resistance to poison." so the one above is probably the original launch one. Fromsoft probably changed it in a patch when they realized how dumb it sounded lol.

              Actually quite fun to use and pretty versatile if paired with Kindred of Rot's Exultation and Serpent Bow on an Arcane build. Applies poison quickly, deals strike damage, has longer reach than a spear, can be used to shield one or two attacks from dogs and rats, and hits flying enemies rather reliably. Seems the sky is the limit with this one when it comes to possible applications.

                Just picked this up and it has a different description than what appears here in the wiki.
                "Armament designed for gladiatorial combat. Rises above it's peers as an especially showy specimen.
                The sculpted bronze snake is a poisonous breed, boosting the wielder's resistance to poison."
                Maybe they changed it in the recent update? I'm on the PC version if that makes and difference.

                    The extremely short poison build up on this shield is literally the fix Kindred of Rot's Exultation has been begging for.

                      This is surprisingly good when used as a weapon. Clips through walls and the damage on Viper Bite aint half bad. I think it does strike damage? Crystalians and crystal miners take full damage from it.

                        You are locked in the wind up animation but the bite can be aimed 360° making you able to turn around at the last second and catch people in pvp

                          The poison inflicted by this shield has an abnormally short duration, around 10-15 seconds. The damage on the weapon art is okay however. Hope they change it.

                            The lenght of the Snake attack hits much farther away than Whips and the Pike Spear, I guess it could be considered a Long Range attack, it has fairly good tracking too so it could potentially be used as a finishing move for PVP

                              It is venomous not poisonous and it looks like a viper in it's head shape but can not tell what time tho.(am a snak nerd)

                                So is there any reason to level this up at all if you don't plan on doing a double small shield melee build? I was just planning to have this as a pocket snake after I rot breath someone but only really care about the poison

                                  From the Volcano Cave's site of grace, continue forward while sticking to the right side of the wall. You'll eventually find yourself at a ledge above some enemies. Drop down onto the ledge below you, then head backwards and there'll be a tunnel that leads to another room. There's 3 dead bodies to loot from here, the leftmost one is the one with the shield I think. -Fateburn

                                    So, either this shield is bugged/glitched, or there must be some unseen mechanic that raises with upgrading the shield. Cause none of the stats change EXCEPT the shields attack power physical lowers with every upgrade, so far it seems like it eats somber just to get weaker.

                                      This wiki needs to be updated- the note about the CNT is outdated. I can confirm that the Coil Shield is in game and can indeed be found at Volcano cave. Beware of the ambush in the area you enter to grab it. No boss required.

                                        Tut tut. There’s no such thing as a “poisonous snake”

                                        There’s a difference between venom and poison. Poison must be ingested to cause harm whereas venom is injected
