Icon Shield is a Greatshield in Elden Ring. The Icon Shield is a Shield that scales primarily with Strength. Greatshields weigh a lot but provide the best protection among shields. This type of shield works best at reducing damage and guarding instead of parrying.

 

Greatshield painted with a divine scene; the recipients of a blessed tear from the Erdtree. An item that looks back fondly on the age of plenty.

The divine scene acts in and of itself as a sacred invocation; gradually restoring the carrier's HP.

Icon Shield Notes & Tips

  • Shield Skill: This armament has no skill. If the armament in the other hand has a skill, that skill will be used instead.
  • Grants a passive HP regeneration bonus of 3 HP per second, which cannot be raised through blacksmithing.
    • Regeneration does not increase while using a second copy of this shield.
  • This shield cannot be infused with Ashes of War, but can be buffed with Magic and Consumables.
  • Sell value: item value icon elden ring wiki guide 18px 500 Runes.
  • This shield is probably a reference in appearance and function to the Adjudicator's Shield from Demon's Souls. It, too, is a greatshield with a similar shape, a painting on the front, and a health regen effect.

      Like all the things others here mentioned, this has still seen no nerf. You plebs have no creativity and thats why Miazaki had to give us bleed nonsense. You can make a regen build that rivals Malenias regen (dont need her rune)

      • Just like Ice Spear and the +8 halbeard of Edgar... this **** will get nerfed Guaranteed, because it makes the game too much fun. Every single thing that makes this game fun gets nerfed... all of it... there isn't a single ****ing thing fun about this game left... it all got nerfed.

        • This shield will get nerfed in the next 10 days, guaranteed, because it makes the game fun... and this game is not supposed to be fun, it's supposed to be sadistic and evil. This game was entirely developed to be evil. And it is evil and us Demons love evil.

            Better looking than the original in Demon Souls, but no modern iteration of that shield will ever surpass the OG in terms of performance.

            • This Shield, regen talisman, Great Stars + prayerful strike, Minimum requirement stats and lots of health and youre unkillable. For Maximum op pp, add bullgoat Armor and the nanomachines talisman that Grants poise. Rivers of blood? Bonk them with the 2 handed great Stars, get hp back and use prayerful strike at half health. Even viable in pve. Great Stars even builds up bleed and has good poise damage.

                Perfect for a paladin build, paired with the blessed dew talisman and either great stars or butchering knife you'll easily outheal the 5% chip damage and even gain more health from counterattacking.

                • Anonymous

                  This + regen talisman + bestial vitality + the banished chest and head(the ones with the cloth) and some matching legs and hands

                  Add Great stars with prayerful strike and you got yourself a "in your face" tank build that goes pretty hard in pve actually,and if you pop the tear mimic on bosses,i guarantee that youll feel like a bully,most of the time.

                    The low guard boost and lack of aow slot make this shield largely impractical. Too bad I like how it looks.

                    • Anonymous

                      Looks like a pavise, a tower shield commonly employed in the middle ages; it was often used by archers or crossbowmen that would use it as cover on the battlefield.

                        Is it just me, or does the figure on the shield kind of look like Varre? It's probably just a coincidence, but it would be interesting if it actually was.

                          You can stack this with Blessed Dew Talisman. And, if you get 12 faith, you can use Bestial Vitality to add even more passive HP regen. Also, don't forget Crimsonburst Tear for your Physick. With all these combined, you can passively regenerate 17HP/s. Pretty decent if you ask me.

                            3HP/s is barely anything compared to the 8HP/s of the adjudicator shield
                            Shame, I hope from adds some sort of regen weapon in the dlc to make up for the lack of passive regen options in the game

                            • Anonymous

                              3hp/s? so 180hp a minute? I mean if you really wanted to stretch flasks sure but in a fight sounds barely noticeable. That's like 5 mins for a full heal from 10% at the point in the game where you get this.

                                Is this a Viable weapon?
                                Without upgrades twohanded it actually deals more damage than many of the real weapons.
                                Normal attacks feel awkward, but charged heavy jump attacks feel pretty good.
                                Horseback light attacks aren't bad either.

                                    The 95% damage negation + regen is a lot better than it seems on paper. So much so that I actually was convinced it had 100% phys block. I had to remove all of my armor to get it to show anything (testing on enemies in Crumbling Farum Azula). Max stability is 64 at +9.

                                      This looks very much like a reference to the film Pan's Labyrinth by Guillermo Del Toro. Hard to say for certain but the similarities are striking and unusual. In particular, the tree's branches curve down and inwards like those of the tree in the film.

                                            For particularly tough areas: after fights where you lose a chunk of health, put this and blessed dew on, go grab a drink, and come back to full health. I saved a bunch of flasks in Farum Azula doing this.

                                                Icon Shield 3hp/s, Plus the Crimsonburst Tear for physick 7hp/s, with the Blessed Dew Talisman 2hp/s, and buffed by Blessing of the erdtree 12hp/s. For a grand total of 24hp/s. Not bad. Makes up for the 95 physical guard in my opinion. Fun for messing around with weak enemies and watching your health recover after each hit. The erdtree blessing page here says health buffs don’t stack except for the talisman and I haven’t tested if I’m actually getting 24hp/s or not.

                                                  This is an all-around nice shield for any GS user. You won’t feel the 5% missing physical guard with the regen it gives you, and it helps a lot in preserving flasks while exploring before any boss fights - where you can switch to a damage-specific shield, or keep using it if you’re a regen build enjoyer stacking it with the talisman and physick.

                                                    I mean, yes, I can wear this on my back for HP regen, but I'm having a hard time thinking of a scenario where 3hp/second is worth 11.5 weight. I guess if you dumped a lot of points into Endurance for Stamina on a powerstance setup with light weapons, it could be useful? Still seems really, really niche, though.

                                                      This shield (like some others) has one kinda non-written additional special use. Using this greatshield allows you to use your main weapon's skill or Ash of War's skill without 2-handling it by using the shield's strong attack button/key. While using that skill with the shield deployed, you'll still be healed as the Greatshield is still equipped even if the attack appears to be 2-handed.

                                                        Why is this only 95 physical block? The HP regen is completely useless if 5% damage is constantly piercing through...
                                                        "bUt tHaT's tHe tRaDeOfF dUrr" then why not just use a normal greatshield then? objectively useless

                                                          I'm a dual-wield hookclaw dps build, but this shield is useful for passive healing because the regen is active as long as it's in your left /slot/, not your left hand. you can just stick it on your back and it functions like s free blessed dew talisman if you can spare the weight while dual wielding.

                                                          in my opinion, the only downside is that it's so big i can't see my elden bling >:I

                                                          • For the record -- yes, the HP regen will stack with items such as Blessed Dew Talisman. A good combo for aimlessly shambling around the world and letting the regen top you up while you're handling other business. You could probably make a full-on regen build as well, but personally, I'd still prefer to use a 100 absorb shield with no regen over this heavy alternative with 89 absorb.

                                                              • Using this currently with the life regen ring and the Sacred Butcher knife for 5 hp/s and 15-17 life on hit. Never need to waste any flasks to heal to full before boss fights now.
