S2 Shield comparison
I've already got the s2 shield, and passed on the nb shield since it's not impressive compared to the s2 imo. What do you think of the s2 shield vs the legacy defender? I'm still liking the s2 shield better but maybe thats because it took so much effort to get it.
[item]Aldori Legacy Defender[/item]
[item]Merciless Gladiator's Shield Wall[/item]
[item]Shield of Impenetrable Darkness[/item]
I use the arena shield over all those. However, grabbing the Gruul one and slapping a hit gem and shield spike on it is not a bad idea. I'm going with that once my OTs finish getting it.
"We actually talked today about adding an item level 300 shirt that did absolutely nothing but mess with mods that attempt to boil down players to gear scores.
Arena shield is indeed better than any of those.
You lose 2 block and 22 defense from the [item]Shield of Impenetrable Darkness[/item]. You gain nearly 900 armor and 15 stamina. There's no way the defense loss makes you uncrittable (gogo resilience!), so just take the [item]Merciless Gladiator's Shield Wall[/item].
And it's also far better than the Aldori shield. Again, large armor gains, plus a large block gain. You end up losing some stamina (3 points), but the armor makes up for that.
Aldori is probably good to have though, because it's very good for aggro tanking.
