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.

  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.

        dragonbolt blessing (makes light attacks bounce, breaks guard, interesting to pair with raptor mist) is a counter here as well Easy to get and relatively cheap. Just don't get hit by lightning while it's active :)

          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.

            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.

                                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.

                                  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.

                                    Ironically if you use the bleed shield crash build, it’s pretty good against other fingerprint shields. I rub my smooth rock against their smooth rock and they spontaneously develop schizophrenia and magically bleed to death. Elden Ring 10/10 GOTY

                                      I love equipping this after being invaded and then watch invaders cream themselves with impotent fury as they spam skills and then immediately cancel the invasion. It's hilarious. Nothing seems to trigger invaders better than this shield.

                                        Don't know why players are hyping this shield.... its a good shield but It will not keep you from getting killed in every battle... for instance, Mohg the Omen will destroy you if you think you are able to stand behind this shield and Turtle/Tank him... LOL!!!! I have Co-op with many players using this shield against Mohg - Mohg always come out the winner...LOL!!!!

                                            My fav bleed weapon ever tbh. Been playing around with it on pve and pvp and bleed shields are not a thing you'd think could function but oh well.

                                              Low level invasions any high level phantoms with this are impossible to kill absolutely zero way to break guard unless you get extremely specific items

                                                Fingerprint Shield + Bloodhound Step AoW. I've been running it because I personally think it's hilarious that some dude wielding an actual 1 ton slab of stone can whizz around at the speed of sound.

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

                                                    With the sorcery to buff shields applied to this, the shield is still absolutely OP. 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.

                                                      Poison, the worst thing in the game, counters this. When they go to use a bolus to cure HIT them. Ironic that the worst thing counters the best.

                                                          Those looking for no-bs counters to this shield (yes they exist):
                                                          - 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
                                                          - Reapers/Shotels ignore 40% of block dmg negation (more on strong attacks, best to slap a good Ash of War on these)
                                                          - 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.

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?

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.

                                                                          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.

                                                                          • Anonymous

Don't have exact numbers, but a maxed out fingerprint shield with greatshield talisman equipped now takes slight stamina loss from blocking anything, instead of no stamina loss.

                                                                                It's still by far the best shield in the game.

                                                                                • Okay I joke about the madness buildup on this but if you slap shield crash on this it can get pretty insane. Hard to land but can often oneshot people thanks to that madness. Bleed and frost are great because they don't lower the madness at all.

                                                                                                  Don't use Buckle to parry poker in pvp, use a shield with Golden Parry. I use the Brass Shield.

                                                                                                  Block the first poke normally, usually poker are all braindead, they will keep poking. Now parry his 2nd poke, switch to Misericode, end the match. Work 100%, unless network lag.

                                                                                                  Don't bother to use Cipher Pata, Reaper... etc to get through the shield, because you will take counter dmg from poker, it is impossible to win the trade against them.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

Most players don't play PVP and don't care about PVP and yet they get affected by all the nerfs over and over again.
                                                                                                          Having a power fantasy trip with a shield that can stop "anything" in such manner is hilarious itself along the rest of the different builds one can try and have fun with in the game.
                                                                                                          There are plenty of useless or mediocre weapons in the game as it is already for them to add more and more interesting strong and cool things to the mix making the game a snooze fest.

                                                                                                          • Anonymous

I doubt it because it has a 100 guard boost with the talisman but id like confirmation if someone knows for sure

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

I'm on my 3rd playthrough and decided to give it a try, and it just rocks. Add the guardshield talisman into the mix and none of the enemy attacks consume stamina while blocking. I just hold down L1 and keep stabbing with my Vyke's madness spear and watch them burn.

                                                                                                              • Anonymous

Shield grease. 54/50 Str/Arc. Two-hand it. Shield Crash AoW. Rotten Wing Sword Insignia. Lord of Blood Exultation. Greatshield Talisman. Shard of Alexander. Blood makes it scale with arc, which increase the base madness build up. L2 hits multiple times to proc bleed and madness and amp RWSInsignia, while doing really high base damage and knocks most things on their backs. Insane for both PvP and PvE. Not to mention best damage negation in the game while blocking.

                                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                                  Throwing in my two cents on how to make this (and shield turtling in general, this is far from the only shield that makes it overpowered) more easily countered in PVP by physical/non-status builds with minimal effects to its PVE viability.

                                                                                                                  1. Make Kick an automatic guard break. As it stands, kicking a shield (Kick’s sole function to do) is literally worse than doing nothing and getting hit since you’re guaranteed to deal no damage and barely if any stamina damage while taking more counter damage. It’s slow enough to dodge or punish with a non-blocking R1, so this wouldn’t even be that effective against smart players.

                                                                                                                  2. Make shield poking reduce guard boost inversely proportional to the class of shield (small shields take no reduction, medium shield take a small reduction and great shield take a moderate reduction). The Visage Shield already works this way, using the weapon art nukes your guard boost. This makes it to where to where you can punish someone for bad stamina management while still losing the trade if you try to bumrush them.

                                                                                                                  3. Change the shield talisman to give a bonus inversely proportional to a shield’s guard boost rather than a flat bonus. This would increase the viability of small and medium shields while keeping the super heavy great shields from being oppressive in PVP or force them into having to use a time-limited buff if they want to have 100 guard boost.

                                                                                                                  I think these changes would be the best compromise between PVPers who are sick of this invalidating most of the weapons in the game while letting PVErs have their fun tanking their way through the game.

                                                                                                                  • They shouldn't nerf this just for pvp but give ways to go around shields. It's not even this specific shield that's the problem, any shield with around 75+ guard boost is good enough to perma block in pvp, especially with greatshield talisman giving another +10 guard boost. Yes this can reach 100 guard boost and blocking won't consume stamina but in almost all souls games there was a way to achieve 100 stability/guard boost by some manner anyway not that you needed to.

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

Strengthen it with barricade shield or shield grease can boost the shield further and there you go, 100 guard boost. Block everything incoming and poke with your thrusting weapons give easy kills against many enemies!
