Wrought iron talisman depicting a trio of ancient dragons.

The ancient dragons, who ruled in the prehistoric era before the Erdtree, would protect their lord as a wall of living rock.
And so it is that the shape of the dragon has become symbolic of all manner of protections.

  • +1 Variant: Sainted Hero's Grave: Can be found in a locked imp's room, behind the Stonesword Key fog wall. When you reach the area with the big axes stomping the ground, you need to get on the first one and jump on the ledge on the left wall. [Map link]

Elden Ring Dragoncrest Shield Talisman Notes & Tips

  • Base variant sell value: runes currency elden ring wiki guide 18 100
  • +1 Variant sell value: runes currency elden ring wiki guide 18 500
  • +2 Variant sell value: runes currency elden ring wiki guide 18 1,000
  • Tips for finding the Dragoncrest Shield Talisman (base variant):
    • It's located below the Bestial Sanctum; the path to reach it includes numerous one-way drops. Because of this, attempting the drops/jumps while holding a large number of runes is not recommended.
    • Look down over the edge of the cliffs to the west of the Bestial Sanctum building to find tree roots that lead you down below the Sanctum.
    • Before descending from the cliffs, you can benefit greatly from a moderate supply of Soft Cotton, as without them several of the falls required will leave you vulnerable to the flying enemies in the area.

      I almost missed the +0 thinking "there's no way I'm actually supposed to be here, is there?". The fact that they spawned bats there was probably the only reason I continued my way down and got it.

        That map above made it a cake walk. Easy as can be. Nice work. We need one for the Devine Tower in Caelid. Though did that on 1st try. Now Rain of arrows aow. Thats some hard core stuff. Dont even try if this gives you troubles.

          i randomly found this today and decided to call invaders here cause i thought it'd be cool to fight at the bottom near the ocean.
          turns out invaders all spawn on top and 90% of them die because they cant get down here.
          im surprised noone made a youtube video abotu this spot yet for "afk rune farming" cause imo its even better than in limgrave. not that i recommend it lol.

            I found the normal one after the +1 just because I saw comments written on that area and thought about going down there, and also lost 150K runes because of those stupid bugged instadeath jumps, along with a stupid dagger, what a waste of time!

              Nice job on the how to map above, thank you. 1st try, easy in comparison to the Divine tower near by and Rain of arrows AOW

                the platforming to get this at bestial sanctuary and rain of arrows from the dead artist in dragonbarrow is taking the p**s and no two ways about it. ever heard anyone who likes the dark souls games, bloodborne or sekiro say anything along the lines of "what this game really needs to make it more fun is pixel perfect platforming, where players can enjoy dying over and over until they get lucky and hit every platform perfectly"? I don't think so somehow.

                  Imagine this talisman had the same weight as the bull goat chest, was the same in PVP as it is in PVE and poise didn't exist. Just imagine it

                    Getting that base talisman was not in any way enjoyable. Every now and again I see someone from the gaming press or just comments from fans saying "the soulsborne games are hard, but they are not spitefully hard" I've never really agreed with that sentiment.
                    From the first Dark Souls on PS3 to Elden Ring there are times in every game when they cross over into being spitefully difficult. The platforming needed here and the Caelid divine tower are good examples, but Elden Ring has more sections and quite a few items as well, that seem designed with the sole purpose of pi*s*ng off the player than any other souls game I've played.

                      For the base talisman it's kinda annoying that you can get stuck in 'combat' with bats way above you, thus forcing you to quit to menu and come back if you want to teleport out.

                        Anyone know the dmg negation for this in duels and pvp ? Since the dragoncrest greatshield talisman is 5% in pvp.

                          when jumping to the bottom layer aim for the pile of boulders in the corner on the same side as the tree branches

                            Props to the picture maker but what kind of sadistic SOB would put something valuable down a path like that? I didn't find a 'kill barrier' on PC 1.03.2 but the jumps were beyond stupid. There's some unique dagger down here too, Cinquedea. And LOL a body with Soft Cotton. Lot of good it did him...

                              Don't waste time trying to get this Base version - there are 3 more of these that has better defense and easier to get.

                                hey people the dragoncrest GREATSHIELD talisman (+0) is better than the dragoncrest shield talisman +2. It gives 20% physical damage negation vs only 17% for the shield talisman +2. Its in the endgame place at haligtree (haligtree roots bonfire). Then go up the long elevator that brings you to a church room where you can backstab a cricket. Go out the front door in that room then turn left and there is a ladder (the longest ladder ever). Then when you get to the top of the ladder you can look down and actually see a square hole in the roof below. Get down to that square hole then jump down and you will land on a skinny wooden beam (when jumping down the square hole you might miss the wooden beam your first try, and die.. its on the left a bit but DONT try to jump down the left side of the hole just jump down the center of the hole and you should land on it)

                                  Make sure to have some Rainbow Stones handy if you're feeling unsure about your next fall! It's sure saved me from a few untrustworthy tumbles.

                                    I managed to get all the way down with the help of the picture. The trick is to make sure you gat as low as possible before jumping. So if you can get to a slightly lower ledge then try getting there first. There are also a few bats down there.

                                      Lost 25k souls because of this bullshit. Do yourself a favor and just use the higher tier version which is much easier to get.

                                                    So let me get this straight, From modeled this giant intricate structure that serves no purpose or function other than hiding a talisman with an obscure way down to it. Then they just decided "actually no" and put a death barrier right under the first root down to it with no way to get the talisman anymore? For what purpose? Does the talisman even work in pvp? The Ring if Steel Protection in DS3 definitely didn't lol.

Either way. First version, as far as I know, is unobtainable by the previous means at Bestial Sanctum.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

It can be found in a area with tons of dragons and have a stormy setting, shortly before the first crucible knight there is a Jump-drop part, and on one of the tiles in this section it must be turn arround and on a small tile below where must be dropped its lies on a corpse.

Need one stonesword Key.

Stand on the first one after it's been dropped to ride it up and jump to a ledge. The imp fog wall with the talisman is up the stairs from there.

I could only find the Crimson Seed Talisman behind the impa statue. Please either put the right location or decrive, where the other imp statues are.
