Dragonclaw shield is one of the Greatshields in Elden Ring that has some spectacular stats and can be relied on in times of trouble. Being a Greatshield, it will weigh more than usual, even reducing your mobility and use more stamina than usual.

But once you get the hang of it, your build will become a tank. This shield is imbued with lightning and will also increase your lightning attack. This guide contains all the information you need on the Dragonclaw Shield.

Dragonclaw Shield location in Elden Ring

The Dragonclaw Shield is in the Capital Outskirts. Acquiring this shield will require combat with the Draconic Tree Sentinel. The Draconic Tree Sentinel in Elden Ring is a knight-type enemy which is ruthless in its attacks.

The location of this knight is north of the Capital Rampart site of Grace. You can get there quickly using the site of the grace in the Outer Wall battleground. From there, travel east through a battlefield. After crossing this battlefield, travel up a flight of stairs and through the Graveyard, crawling with skeletons.

Once you’re through, you will be out in an open field with three Golems that will try to kill you on sight. You can easily dodge these golems on horseback. They will consume a lot of time and effort, so keeping them saved for the Sentinel is better.

The Dragonclaw shield will be used against you first, along with the Dragon Greatclaw by the Draconic Tree Sentinel. Defeat him to pick up these items for yourself.
