    Barricade of Eternity vs Wall of Terror

    I'm currently using Barricade of Eternity and I just picked up Wall of Terror in our first Naxx25 clear last night.

    I'm most likely going to switch back and forth between the two for different situations, but I was not 100% sure when to switch...

    Would it be the Barricade of threat oriented encounters and Wall of Terror for high avoidence/mitigation encounters?

    yup exactly, wall of terror would also help decrease the damage your taking on trash (don't need as much hit/expertise for them)

    Wall of Terror is only good for two things because of its bad itemization; situations where you want more block/AP (= trash) and looks. For everything else, I'd rather use the Barricade or even Hero's Surrender.

    Looks for the Wall? Looks like a halloween decoration. Sure it's better than the heroic Alliance wall decoration but still I wouldn't call this a good looking shield. The fridge door like barricade isn't very nice looking either.

    Titansteel, best looking wotlk shield. Piece of the millenium falcon? Yes plz.

    To bad the best looking one got replaced right away. I agree titansteel is the best looking shield in the game right now.
    There is something so appealing about backhanding someone across the face with a shield.

    Barricade of Eternity for main tanking, Wall of Terror for trash tanking.

    Agreed on all accounts. Wall of Terror is itemized extremely poorly, which is very sad considering it's an ilvl 226 shield. Wasted potential.

    I agree, seems like there is quite a bit of odd itemization going on with the high end gear

    Was just reading this and this is my situation:
    I'm a prot paladin and I have the Barricade of eternity. I always thought the Wall of Terror to be better mainly because of higher item lvl (more block, armor, overall more stats).

    Reckon I shouldn't get it at all?
