The elemental shield may be made during and after the Elemental Workshop I quest in the Elemental Workshop dungeon.
To make the shield, players must have a Smithing level of 20, an elemental metal, a hammer, and either a battered book or slashed book in their inventory. Smithing the shield grants the player 20 Smithing experience. To equip the shield, players must have completed the Elemental Workshop I quest.
The elemental shield is in a (hard) clue scroll emote step, along with the blue dragonhide chaps, and a Rune warhammer.
