Crucible Hornshield is a Greatshield in Elden Ring. The Crucible Hornshield is a Shield that scales primarily with Strength. Greatshields weigh a decent amount and provide the best protection in the game. Greatshields provide a greater value of blocking and protecting one's self from enemy and boss attacks, but greatly increases the weight and reduces the player's mobility. This type of shield works best at reducing damage or guarding instead of parrying.

 

Greatshield of red-tinged gold carried by Crucible Knights.
Features a great horn.

An ancient holiness dwells within. The crucible horn skewers foes when performing shield bashes.

      I like it's aesthetic but that is the only reason to use it, it has less boost than medium shields near half it's weight, not really much better elemental, nothing special about the bash you can't change. If they could just give it one thing. Make it lighter, give it the fancy shield bash the actual knights use, boost its stats, make it customizable etc it would be really nice.

        Outclassed by any other greatshield really. Dumb how it requires somber stones even though there nothing really special about it.

          Heavily implied this shield does thrust on the shield bash. Will synergize well with crucible aspect incantations if you use your seal in main hand. 26 str requirement is pretty low for a caster to have a great shield that knocks people down and let’s him cast fire breath on wake up. 25 endurance will allow you to wear the crucible armor, shield and sword with the appropriate end game talismans. The elemental defenses leave much to be desired but the purpose is to create space for casters and possible score counter hits during shield bash trades.

            Imagine how cool it would be if the "skewer" effect on shield bashing was a "grab" attack like Inescapable Frenzy. Like, you bash them with the shield, and then hoist your victim over your head before slamming them down or throwing them off.

              This thing is garbage just based on the fact that you can't change the ash alone, not even taking into consideration the paltry guard boost it has in ratio to weight.

                "Use Fingershield" this, "This shield is underpowered" that. Bro stfu Lord Godfrey has returned and needs our help!

                  So the 'Ancient Holiness' dwells within is just flavor text, shield doesn't even do holy damage on a bash. The only difference is that it does Thrust damage instead of Strike when you shield bash, Fingerprint Shield does more base damage and has madness build up. Or use one of the bleed causing bash shields.

                    Literally worse stability and damage negation than the brass shield but for double the investment because you want a pierce shield bash.

                    Basically, only use it if you're part of the crucible knight fan club.

                    Hopefully from sees that the brass shield is better than most greatshields and they buff all the lesser used greatshields :)

                      Confirmed not 100% drop from Lesser Crucible Knight on bridge found after 4 belfries warp. Just killed him and only received runes :/

                        Technically the "skewering" part does have an in-game effect, it causes a bleeding visual effect the same way a sword hit will when shield bashes on other shields don't. That's it as far as I can tell. Maybe decent for it's weight, but a heavier shield like the fingerprint shield still does more damage with shield bash. Another greatshield with a cool design but got shafted from a gameplay perspective.

                          Bad shield: BAd dmg negation compared to Gilded greatshield, Haligtree etc. Apparently does higher shield bash dmg but at +9, level 200+ with a STR/FTH build only does like 688 to a Haligtree soldier.

                          Not to mention the fp cost and the time it takes to finish the animation. Its a bad shield stat-wise stuck with possibly the worst Shield Ash of war.

                            Should have bleed damage as should the crucible knight shoulder charge incantation. Problem with that? Then they shouldn't put words like 'gore' and 'skewer' in the item descriptions.

                              Anyone know if the "skewers foes when performing shield bashes" has any special properties/interactions? From playing around with it a bit, doesn't seem to do anything different than a normal shield

                                  Wish this shield would get an ash of war swap update so I could use it with the coolest armor in the game(tree crucible)
