Fingerprint Stone Shield is a Greatshield in Elden Ring. The Fingerprint Stone Shield 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.

 

A great stone shield with an intricately carved fingerprint design.
One of the heaviest of all greatshields.

Part of the tomb of an ancient god, the Readerless Fingers relayed their message through these imprints, said to be the very seeds from which frenzy first sprouted.

 

Where to Find Elden Ring Fingerprint Stone Shield

The Fingerprint Stone Shield Shield can be found at the following location:

Cathedral of the Forsaken. [Elden Ring Map here]

IMPORTANT: Before you start, you must first defeat Morgott, the Omen King; otherwise a seal will be blocking the final area before the shield.

NOTE: This needs 3 platforming jumps down that are a bit difficult.

After defeating Mohg - The Omen in the Cathedral of the Forsaken you can roll/attack the altar behind the chest and it will move down out of the way revealing a path. The area after Mohg contains a large vertical shaft. After descending the shaft to a certain point, the only way to descend further is by dropping down to various tiny graves sticking out of the walls.

Shunning Grounds, Video Location

  1. You'll be at the last wooden beam on the southern side of the shaft. There'll be a Nomad on the final southern platform playing a violin. Where this Nomad is is exactly where you need to drop off to start dropping down the gravestones on the eastern shaft wall.
    step 1
  2. Carefully drop off of this southeast corner of the shaft onto the first tiny headstone. 
    step 2

    You'll be able to see the next headstone you need to reach down the shaft's eastern side.
    step 3
  3. For the first jump, starting at the southern most part of the first tiny headstone you're standing on, walk forwards, press the jump button, then let go of forward immediately (try not to hug the eastern wall as the geometry will move you out into the shaft). This will usually reach the second headstone.
  4. On the second headstone, turn to face the southern wall, and do the same thing you did in the previous step (remember not to hug the eastern wall while doing it, or the geometry might push you in a weird direction). This will usually reach the third headstone.
    step 4
  5. Finally, from the southernmost part of the third headstone, just walk off the headstone facing the north wall. You'll reach the fourth headstone. There is an item here you can pick up but there's still another step left before getting the shield.
    step 5
  6. Enter the alcove that the fourth headstone jutted out of. Circle around to the southern side of this alcove then walk down a corridor moving west. The shield is at the end of this corridor, along with a Nomad. The Nomad's attacks can be used to destroy the environment at the other end of the corridor where you came from to obtain another item, so be careful about killing it too quickly.  [Elden Ring Map here]

This upgrade can't be enchanted with Magic or boosted with Consumables.

      Not everyone is is g9 with a rot rapier BHS into RKR scythe swap to counter someone shield poking with this. Idk how anyone could defend an obviously broken armament. Countering this thing is disproportionately difficult and incredibly time consuming, especially if the wilder has any skill at all.

        This hunk of rock has better base damage and scaling than most weapons muster, on top of having a status effect. Wow

          how come this chunk of stone can deal bleed build up with the infusion. like what am I slashing people with, the edge?

            maybee im to stupid but how does the passive effekt works? i tried it out in different situations but nothing happend.

            • Anonymous

              Currently slapping occult on this just gets rid of the madness buildup altogether, which is a bummer, but having bleed on it has it properly scale with arcane, giving you solid buildup on both.

              • Anonymous

                I found this is by best friend against invaders. Pop on Shield Crash with Bleed. If the bleed doesn't take them out, the ending smack will knock them on their butt and you can easily have another ready as they get up. Also, it pretty much just pummels through most attacks. Invader tried to use Lanssax's bolt on me. I powered through the attack and knocked out of the air. It's broken if you have the Equip Load for it.
                Note, don't try it on bosses. They kind of just ignore it and usually retaliate with an attack you can no longer dodge, due to high stamina cost.

                  I tried this shield out with no upgrades to compare it with a brass shield +16 that has the barricade shield AoW. I hit the Malenia wall hard yesterday, I was hoping this shield might give me a better chance to survive her OP c**tish second phase.
                  If anyone thinks I'm talking through my arse from here on they can very easily go do the same and see for themselves.
                  Testing different weapon damage and talismans or whatever on the troll near secluded cell grace is apparently a thing. But it's never crossed my mind to try blocking a troll's attacks, it seems like a really bad idea, but I tried it anyway just out of curiosity.
                  I made it aggro then I cast barricade shield between its attacks and what I saw was unexpected, the stamina drain from blocking each of the different attacks it uses was insignificant, a very small portion of my stamina bar. Knowing how much HP trolls can cost when they land hits I'm not sure what to make of it. Before casting the AoW the brass shield's guard boost is 64 at +16 but it doesn't show what the guard boost is when barricade shield has been cast on it, it's 56 with no upgrades.

                  I did the same again with the finger print shield but there was a big difference, right from the first hit I took the damage to my stamina was considerably more with this shield than the medium brass one. If anyone knows what's happening here I'd be interested to hear. My understanding is the finger print shield is in the highest tier of hardness and it will bounce some attacks right back and flinch the aggressor, the brass shield doesn't do that even with the AoW cast on it. So does having 81 guard boost at base level mean the brass shield with the AoW cast has a significantly higher guard boost and that's why blocking with it costs very little stamina? is that right?

                    To all people malding about this shield being strong, keep in mind there are weapons like moonveil that can 1 shot and are really quick, the bolt of funny dragon which can do the same amount of damage but from far away (and its also pretty quick), several dozens of magic spells you can just to just anihlate stamina, jump attacks, heavy weapons, and much more to deal with this ol hunk of rock, namely status effects.

                          is this the heaviest weapon in the game? since you can hold 6 weapons, 29x6=174 weight, plus 1.6+1.5+1.5+1.4 on 4 talisman slots (millicents prosthesis, any arsenal talisman, any erdtrees favour, and either of the winged sword insignias) plus 12.3 pumpkin helm, plus 26.5 bull-goat chest piece, plus 8.8 bull-goat hands, plus 16.4 bull-goat legs, all adds up to a theoretical maximum of exactly 244 weight. if anyone wants to go through ng+6 to manage this i applaud them.

                              Played with this shield for a few hours, was fun ngl. For STR builds, impaling thrust can hit through the guard. Royal knight's resolve + jumping R2 is also good for guard breaks. Even then, its predictable and any decent fingerprint shield player will learn to dodge them. Its similar to fighting someone with BHS where it just stalls the duel (obv not as bad)

                                The reason it causes madness build up is because invaders go mad trying to guard break it on an overleveled phantom at rl 20

                                  Can you not get the guard boost to 100 or 99 without using magic? I thought that was achieved through using the greatshield talisman ?

                                    I actually guardbroke somebody using this shield. I was lvl 40, Liurnia, probs an overleveled phantom. He was trying to attack me with the shield. After few attacks from him, used determinantion AoW +jump attack, guard broke him and..... the game was like not today, you are not getting a riposte.

                                          cheese set up with this to tank everything. blood great epee with blood tax. this shield of course no skill. rotten sword talisman, millicent prosthetics, great shield talisman, turtle talisman, for physick enhance power with successive strikes, and stamina recovery.

                                          dont forget to lower your shield from time to time to recover stamina when not taking hits.

                                          enjoy your free boss wins.

                                            Seriously WTF is this.Unbreakable guard shield with madness proc? This takes the broken mechanics of this game and puts it in one item. Madness procs way too fast with stun lock, guard has no damage and can be buffed and there is no way to reasonably break a shield guard even with a WA.

                                              Havel's greatshield was virtually unused in DS3. Let's look at how the two compare:

                                              -Havel's is lighter than Fingerprint Stone by 1 unit

                                              -Havel's provides better affinity absorption than Fingerprint Stone across the board

                                              -Havel's requires less Str, 40 vs 48, but we can consider this a bit of a false equivalence because ER seems to engender higher leveling in general than DS3

                                              That ends the positives for Havel's. Now, I say it was unused, but anyone who played enough DS3 pvp probably encountered someone playing with Havel's shield and probably got decently annoyed by it. Status wasn't nearly as good then, and shield chip weapons weren't especially popular besides Freide's scythe perhaps. Someone who knew what they were doing with it could give you a hard time. But even with its counters being unpopular or unviable, so was Havel's shield itself. So From turned all the dials to 11 making Fingerprint Stone.

                                              -9 more stability (which is huge, because stability is not distance from 0, it's distance from 100. 80 to 89 is a higher jump in efficacy than 30 to 39, for example. 99 to 100 is an infinite efficacy increase, 98 to 99 is doubled, etc etc.)
                                              -90 more base damage and a letter grade higher Str scaling without any affinity
                                              -ability to be infused with an affinity for more damage potential
                                              -innate madness buildup
                                              -ARC scaling ashes boost said madness buildup
                                              -Ashes of War, Shield Crashes of War. Stone Skin was a great way to let yourself get backstabbed, Shield Crash and Bloodhound Step are great ways to never lose.
                                              -The advent of Great Thrusting Swords and Great Spears. Greater variety of shield poking weapons, and new ones have generally better Str scaling
                                              -Guard Counters
                                              -The union of END and VIT. Leveling VIT to hoist Havel's greatshield was largely seen as a waste of levels. But in ER it also makes your green bar nigh inexhaustible
                                              -Backstabbing is now considerably more difficult, I mean people have to leave themselves wide open for a very long time. Parrying's timings have changed and are now a "do it and hope it works" situation, like very laggy DS3, but all the time, making it harder to parry shield pokes. Whiff a parry and get shield crashed, GG.

                                              All this to say that Fingerprint Stone looks to me like a classic overcorrection case. It was done too many favors all at once, and that's why it's so obnoxious to play against. Yes, you can say that it's silver bullets are stronger than they were in DS3 as well, but I don't like outfitting my characters with a suite of meta and anti-meta weapons that I dislike simply because they work better. DS3 had pretty few, if any, outright unwinnable matchups based on gear choice alone, but Lord help you if you try to fight a fingerprint stone without a specially-crafted answer to it.

                                                if you change the scaling to Occult/poisen/bleed does this make the Madness scaling increase based on your arcane?

                                                  Brick Hammer +25 -> Royal Knight's Resolve -> Jump attack = One hit guard break. I'm not sure if your strength affects it, but i had 50 Strength when testing that.

                                                  And Giant Crusher +25 works even better, just one crouch attack with RKR can guard break pretty reliably.

                                                    The balancing point is that tanks like these sole purpose is to play the long game. The other end of the scale is carrying a UGS OHK or Mage Spam. The game invites creativity to overcome obstacles and this shield is one of them. Your build's bane is this shield? consider carrying a weapon to overcome it. No build should be able to tackle every build. If fighting this shield is boring, fighting a UGS that kills in 2 swings is no fun either. I think thats a fair trade off. Also as a note, I treat shields as i see them IRL- they win wars along with spears when melee was the only way to go. And Shield pokers are OP in this game as they are IRL.

                                                      Honestly pretty easy to counter, ice spear, swarm of flies, impaling thrust/piercing fang, and many stomp type moves completely ignore the shield. Additionally, both shotels and reapers ignore approximately 40% of the shield damage negation.

                                                        The only thing that makes this shield broken is shield poking with spears this with a Greatsword or any other weapon is awesome for all melee ass a lot of players spam stars of Ruin or very long range AOW because you can’t shield poke also it requires huge stat investment for example I can’t use any magic whatsoever

                                                            I went there after finishing the game and there was no stall covering this shield. I could pick it up without having to kite the enemies to destroy the stall. Btw funny how you can kill a god and then can't destroy a stall made of wooden poles and rags.

                                                              Would somebody have pity on my soul and give me theirs if they are done using it?

                                                                This jumping puzzle is really easy once you have the pattern. Once you land on the first grave after stepping off from the lowest i-beam connecting room you basically want to go from left to right when jumping on the graves. Then follow these steps:

                                                                1. Strip naked to make it easy to see and makes sure you are light rolling.
                                                                2. Roll off the first grave while aiming for the next grave down. So long as your positioning is good on the first grave, you will plop down on the next grave.
                                                                3. Same move to the next grave down, just combat roll to the next grave down.
                                                                4. The next two graves will be jumping while moving forward. No sprint, nothing special, just calm jumps or falls to the next available grave.
                                                                5. You will now be close to the bottom and the next two graves will look like either short jumps or rolls. They are neither, just walk forward off the graves to the next ones down.

                                                                If you stick to the counterclockwise nature of these graves and remember that it's two rolls, then regular jumps/falls, followed by just walking to the next graves.

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  As a 2 hand guy that never use a shield I tried this one to see if it really makes the game a cake walk.
                                                                  It does... even as is, without the spell buff for more guard boost most enemies can't guard break you even if you keep holding it, and you can poke with a lance without even lowering it. You can also hug them while turning a round a spam back stabs. You just need to take a small risk to lower it when you need stamina. Elemental damage hurt you a bit, but not that much. This coupled with some health regen must be so OP in PVE.
                                                                  So yeah, exactly what I remembered with a greatshield, combat becomes too boring, but I understand that some people can like this kind of gameplay, it's way less stressing that having to roll through everything lol.

                                                                  • Anonymous

I rub my smooth rock against their smooth rock and they spontaneously develop schizophrenia and magically bleed to death. Elden Ring 10/10 GOTY

It's hilarious. Nothing seems to trigger invaders better than this shield.

                                                                                Just so happens that Bloodhound's Step pretty much hard counters anything that can pierce the funny meme brick.

Unless you happen to do a damage type that can reasonably get past it, or anything that does status effects, you can do absolutely nothing to the shield. This shield shield just shouldnt be allowed buffs tbqh. Even without them the shield is easily the best in the game by a longshot, and would still be horrendous in multiplayer. There is zero reason this shield should have any buffs be applicable to it though with how amazing it already is. In PvE it trivializes any boss as you can pretty much sit through most all attacks, especially physical. In PvP it turns the fight into a bore as it is extremely difficult to play around. Honestly I wouldn't have had it in this game in the first place with its current stat line, it's just stupidly powerful with the no real drawback.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                          - Piercing Fang/Impaling thrust Ashes will do significant dmg through shield, Flame of Redmanes can break guard with relative ease, ice spear can also break guard if
                                                                                          you are close to them

                                                                                          - Cipher Pata is best bet for faith build, can deal upwards of ~1300 dmg if optimized, coded sword also works but harder to land the Ash of War
                                                                                          - Parrying if they are shieldpoking, usually fairly predictable
                                                                                          - Otherwise status effects can work, especially with a pulley crossbow so they can't poke you, but unless they are completely braindead they will roll these. Poison/rot still worth it if you get a chance though, frost good too for extra damage

                                                                                          Yes it sucks to fight, but there is nothing better than watching a shieldpoker piss their pants when they see how much you hit them for through their shield

The Scholar's Shield buff will give you a full minute of 100% guard, once again. If your fight goes on longer than a minute? Re-cast it.

The Scholar's Shield buff will give you a full minute of 100% guard, once again. If your fight goes on longer than a minute? Re-cast it.

                                                                                              • Conservative nice nerfing in 1.04. Giant hunt and royal knight resolve together with hammer tailsman can get some stamina and actually guard break now. But still not enough yet. These ashes of war are widely shared among different builds so this would be some nice balance in the future I guess. I still wonder what else general counter there are? I just don't take any build answers, like you need blabla faith build for "dragonbolt blessing". Remember not everyone's interested in whatsoever build and delete the other half of the game like you did. Get some help, or stop calling "dragonbolt blessing" a balance.

                                                                                                I noticed there is a very interesting update for Ice Spear ash of war. The spinning animation now staggers and deals good damage! This staggering ignores shield as well guarantees the second hit, together deals 1k+ damage + almost guaranteed frostbite with Cold. Has poise and the staggering is almost immediate after activation. It's almost a kill for shield-pokes now. However the spin range is different among weapons. I use a guardian swordspear for this now. Not bad but I still wonder are there better options?

                                                                                                    So, Pro-PvPers, how to deal with this thing? When guy just hold block and facehugs you with something quick in mainhand, like estoc. I tried kicking, Impaling thrust, Peircing fang, heck, even scythe with royal knight's resolve - it just either just doesn't even guard break, or it deals so little damage compared to what you eat while trying to attempt this. I have no idea.

                                                                                                    • In addition to its other wide array of benefits, this chonky boy is surprisingly useful when two-handed for straight bashing, especially with a Flame Ash. Huge stagger, and Strike is pretty consistently good and occasionally incredible when dealing with the likes of Crystallians. Plus, bonking people with a big rock is funny.

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

Please do not use this, if the user is good enough he literally cannot be countered.
                                                                                                        And if you mix this with bloodhound step too, you are the worst.

                                                                                                          As of 1.04, this has now been nerfed and having passive 100 guard boost is no longer possible with Greatshield Ring. However, this shield still seems to have 100 guard boost when using Shield Grease.


                                                                                                          Visage Shield can get similar levels with Shield Grease, but it is clearly not 100 stability and Visage Shield is unique so it can't be infused. Visage Shield also doesn't seem to get full 100 guard boost even with Scholar's Shield. Haligtree Crest Greatshield is the third best greatshield and can be infused, but doesn't get nearly as much from Shield Grease as it does from Scholar's Shield, which similarly is not 100 Guard Boost


                                                                                                          Whilst Shield Grease is only a temporary buff, it doesn't require the int cost, spell slot or having a staff like scholar's shield - what's more, you don't need to spend a Talisman Slot on Greatshield Ring as you did previously. This continues to give Fingerprint a distinct advantage over other shields. Fingerprint is also still an exceptionally powerful strength weapon in its own right, doing great damage with Shield Crash and is decent even without. In addition, you can infuse Fingerprint Shield with Heavy, dropping it's guard boost to 89, but Shield Grease will still provide 100 guard boost, meaking Heavy Fingerprint much more attractive than before.


                                                                                                          So yeah, this shield is still king, make no mistake.
