Hello im just wondering what shield you would use given any boss for SSC and TK?

I have 4 to pick from =)

Azure-Shield of Coldarra - Thottbot: World of Warcraft (http://thottbot.com/i29266)

Aldori Legacy Defender - Thottbot: World of Warcraft (http://thottbot.com/i28825)

Crest of the Sha'tar - Thottbot: World of Warcraft (http://thottbot.com/i29176)

Merciless Gladiator's Shield Wall - Thottbot: World of Warcraft (http://thottbot.com/i32045)

Currently i use the merci one due to armor, stam, and block.
thank you for any help =)

Aldori is the best by a long shot.

If you don't mind me asking why would you choose that one? (and for anyone else replying) no offense

Aldori's usually the best. The badge and rep shields are a lot lower ilvl, and lower armour.

Aldori's decent EH, provides some avoidance, and has some nice threat. I use my Gladiator shield on occasion though, when EH really trumps avoidance / threat.

Merciless for EH fights
Aldori for threat/avoidance

Aldori, if only Gruul would give it up! <crosses fingers for tonights Gruul run>

Merciless > Aldori > the other 2 for EH and for resistance fights, otherwise go with Aldori

Ahh Merciless.

Azure/Shatar < Glad < Aldori < Merc

Throw a festeel shieldspike on the Aldori to help hold agro on multiple mobs, and +18 stam enchant on merciless for EH bosses and you're set. I'm envious.
