Elden Ring Greatshield Talisman Notes & Tips
- Sell value: 500 Runes
- This talisman multiplies your Guard Boost rating by 1.1, reducing the amount of stamina that is lost when you block attacks.
- Note: The value that gets multiplied is the actual Guard Boost (including decimals) rather than the display value. This result is then rounded up for stamina reduction calculations if any decimal is present.
- This talisman does not increase damage reduction from blocking.
- As of v1.04, the Guard Boost bonus from the Greatshield Talisman is smaller for Greatshields that have a higher innate Guard Boost (like the Fingerprint Stone Shield). This means you cannot reach 100 Guard Boost using the talisman alone.
- As of now, the actual effect of the talisman is unknown, after thorough testing, it has made little to no difference and has had inconsistent results.
