View Full Version : S2 Shield VS. ZA shield

A while ago there was a discussion about wether to use Aldori Legacy Defender or Merciless Gladiator's Shield Wall
But after the Bulwark of the Amani Empire came out I haven't seen a thread for this. Sorry if there's allready been one. Seeing that it lacks abit more armor and stam, but then again has both BV and Block Rating im unsure if I should try getting it instead of my Merciless Gladiator's Shield Wall.

Again I apologize if there's allready been a thread about this.

Effective health of the shields at 16767 health 17604 Armor with s2

S2 shield: 41369
bulwark of amani empire: 41206
Aldori: 40773
Nightbane: 39683

So if your not 490+ def s2 wins, if you are Bulwark of amani empire since it has a huge ammount of block value.

Yeah atm im at
16300 hp
17579 armor
19,25 parry
19,4 dodge
30,32 block
And about 521(With the Hydros trinket) def I think. Not prot atm due to guild pvp saturday :)
Just have to wait for it to drop then :( Think we lost one week with doing it after the ZA patch came out and not dropped yet. Betting 90% of the time it has been that mail chest grrrr and doubble grrrr.

Thanks Nicki :)

the bulwark is amazing for a burst threat build. For overgeared tanks tanking lower level instances/raids, go with the bulwark. otherwise, I'd stick with the S2 for progression.

What i was saying is,

Those EH numbers dont consider the block value on amani. Therefore Amani is slightly better than S2. Unless you become crittable while wearing it.
