Greatshields are a type of Shield in Elden Ring. Greatshields usually weigh a decent amount and provide the best protection in the game. In exchange, they cannot be used to parry (barring certain unique greatshield skills). However, they are commonly compatible with Shield Bash to allow the user to strike without breaking their guard. Most attacks with greatshields that strike the ground will stagger lighter enemies nearby in a very small radius; this can be observed with regular attacks or dash attacks versus weaker bipedal enemies such as Wandering Nobles.

Greatshields, while guarding, also have the ability to cause a lot of attacks barring heavy guard-breaking ones to bounce off them, interrupting a lot of enemy combos and opening them up to guard counters. This also synergizes well with their high innate Guard Boost, meaning your guards consume very little Stamina. You can also use greatshields with Thrusting Swords, Heavy Thrusting Swords, or Spears for a stamina-friendly combo that lets you attack without dropping your guard.

Greatshields can be modified by Ashes of War, allowing you to change their Skill and their Damage Reductions when Blocking.

      It's a crime that we can't get the Fire Giant's disk as an offensive greatshield with sweeps and slam attacks instead of all these boring shield bashes.

      • Anonymous

        does anyone know if you attack damage is reduced when attacking behind a greatshield?

        it Feels like it does.

        • Anonymous

          Wearing a greatshield on your back should make you immune to backstabs but also change your roll to a sidestep with less I-frames. Maybe one day...

          • Anonymous

            who thought it's a good idea to list the unupgraded versions of the shield instead of their maxed versions?

            • Anonymous

              One thing I can't find a conclusive answer on, which I think this page should mention: which weapons let you attack while blocking with a greatshield? I know spears and great spears, but are there any others?

              • Anonymous

                These make me miss the Stone Greatshield

                Good all around defense, excellent guard boost, and more damage than all the others at high strength. King of the melee smash, without being a door.

                • Anonymous

                  It would be really helpful to have some kind index of which attacks are deflected by greatshields. Broken down into weapon classes 1 hand vs 2 hand and R1 vs R2.

                  • Anonymous

                    Wish you could just hit stuff with the shield like in Dark Souls 2. I know that game is the community's punching bag but I loved the freedom it gave you.

                    • Anonymous

                      I think they could lower str requirements on most greatshields a little bit since the guardboost difference is small compared to the best medium shields (best medium shields 14 str 55 guardboost / greatshields 30 str 65 guardboost).
                      The tradeoff isn't that good when you can use barricade shield on Mshields too and it would let greatshield users put more points into endurance.

                      • Anonymous

                        Kinda sucks that this page has the shields offensive info listed instead of their defensive properties.
                        Those are shields... I'm aware you can use shields to attack, hell even do a shields-only run, but to list here their offensive properties only rather than their defensive properties is clearly pointless.

                        • Anonymous

                          Anybody ever used one of these as a weapon? Like an actual non-defensive weapon? I think they're pretty useful if you're going into a mine and have to deal with an enemy (eg: miner) that won't budge from anything short of Strike damage.

                          • Anonymous

                            All these stupidly high STR requirements make my head hurt. The limiting factor for Greatshields should be WEIGHT, not STR requirement, because a greatshield is heavy but it's not likely you're swinging most of them around. Besides, given that stamina and equipment load are now under a single stat, it makes sense that you get a fatter stamina bar to go with the heavy shield.

                            • Anonymous

                              If a shield is infused with something for blood scaling, does the bleed meter build by attacking with the shield or by guarding with it?

                              • Anonymous

                                can someone clean up these tables. Half of them list defense first, the other half list damage first. It's a bloody shield, I dont need to sort by attack damage.

                                  With the new guard counter, as well as the faster and stronger shield bash, greatsshields actually have gameplay options now.

                                    Looks like the new patch has buffed some or all of the greatshields' guard boost, probably to compensate for the Barricade nerf.

                                              Does anyone know if the Haligtree Crest Greatshield is a drop from the knights that wield it, or if you can find it as a static item? I've killed probably over 200 knights and it hasn't dropped for me yet.

                                                Fingerprint has Madness building up 70. If you make it Blood it goes Madness 70 and Blood loss 83. Just put shield bash on it and its the best shield to use.

                                                    Found Haligtreecrest Greatshield. Start at Sewercanal Grace in Haligtree go outside and work your way to the building left by going over the tree branches and rafters you can drop through a hole and you can find the Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman go outside of the building and go right where you see a couple of Knights just standing there one of them drops the shield. You can look up a guide to get the Talisman and that should already give a good idea what i mean.
