Elden Ring: Where To Get The Great Turtle Shell Shield

This one is bulky but doesn't weigh too much.


If you're looking to collect every shield in Elden Ring, you'll likely come across a large majority of them by just playing through the game normally. However, a handful of shields can be easily missed without a keen eye. That's the case with the Great Turtle Shell Shield, which you may overlook if you're not paying close attention. In this guide, we'll tell you how to get your hands on it.

The Great Turtle Shell Shield explained

The Great Turtle Shell Shield is a medium shield that requires 14 Strength to wield. While it's not the best defensive option you can find, it's nevertheless a decent choice for many builds simply due to its solid weight-to-protection ratio and the fact that it boosts your stamina recovery rate by 8%.

Where to find the Great Turtle Shell Shield

As you go straight up in the spiritspring, you'll be able to go in any direction, but your goal is to land directly on the top of the nearby ramparts tower. Once you land there, one of the two items found in the small area will be the Great Turtle Shell Shield.
