Since I am loosing my partner for s3 due to ret spec, I decided Im going to stay prot next season most likely. I want to pick up the s3 shield but are you going to need the personal rating of 1850 for that as well?
I am assuming you do but figured I would check here. If it is, should I just get the season 2 shield when the cost is reduced? I have more than enough points saved up and my current shield is still Plat shield of valorus. I also have enough badges for coldara. I am not able to kill gruul so Aldori is out.
edit* - Nightbane shield is possible, but due to a recent change in my work hours, raiding may be out of the question until after christmas, and I want to farm heroic badges for the new items. So it basically comes down to Coldara vs merc shield I guess
