Tarnished Seal

Tarnished Seal
Effect Enables you to Parry enemy strikes, interrupting their attacks.
Location Fallgrim Tower

Tarnished Seal is a Key Item in Mortal Shell. Tarnished Seal can be used to parry enemy attacks and is acquired at the Fallgrim Tower when you remove it from The Old Prisoner.


Both symbol and weapon, the seal is rusted and filthy. A symbol of infinity. This seal is a faint shadow of its former self, but the etchings pulse when blood slicks its face.


 Tarnished Seal Use

  • Enables you to Parry enemy strikes, interrupting their attacks. In order to parry an attack, players must press the Parry button just before the strike impacts.
  • The Seal (located on the back of your character) will glow red for unparryable strikes.
  • The Seal will glow white each time you fill a Resolve bar.
  • If players have enough resolve, they can spend it to perform an empowered riposte using the Tarnished Seal Abilities.


Tarnished Seal Abilities

When a successful parry is performed, players can spend Resolve to perform a Riposte

  • Seal Infusion - Healing:
    • Spend 1 resolve to perform an Empowered Riposte which deals damage to the enemy and heals your character.
    • When you block the opponent falls to the ground, giving you a tactical advantage and time to make a new attack.
  • Seal Infusion - Inflamed:
    • When empowered by Resolve, your riposte will attach a charged larva to your enemy which after a few seconds explodes. 
    • The explosion will damage nearby enemies as well.
  • Seal Infusion - Knotted
    • When empowered by Resolve, your riposte will bend time to your will.
