SK agro
# Mar 02 2004 at 3:15 AM Rating: Default
ya know, being a bish of an SK as I am, Ima gonna hafta say this... Stealing agro is easy, also getting agro stole back, is just as easy. Warriors may have a hard time doing it unless I FD, but Rangas on the other hand, they land enough DPS to stay right at the top of the agro list. So lets not be pointing fingers at who can and cant steal agro cuz the truth is, many classes can and do without a problem. As for this shield, not many warriors/paladins use 1hander/shield combo. But alot of SK's do. This shield is perfect for sk's that dont have stun and need it...

hmm being an sk myself, i havent the slightest problem keeping aggro over rangers, rogues, monks, bsts, and even slow aggro, its all the use of the spells not the weapons, dps doesnt mean anything. Personally, i like 2h weapons alot better than 1h although this shield is nice...and paladins do use one hand weapons, some of the best pal weapons are 1h. if you have trouble with aggro, try snares, fears, and your anger inciting spells.

Correct me if I am wrong, but SK get some DD spells, snares, dots AND spells disigned specificly for agro, nothing else? You should be holding agro easily if you use your spells effectively. Of course there are always exceptions like that all Time-geared rogue or whatnot. As for warriors and this shield, warriors get a Stormrider Carapace, which is not only as easy to obtain, but has FB 4, not 3, better stats AND is war ONLY. Not to mention there are quite a few weapons out there with hate increasing procs which, I personally would think, are better then a shield? I recently got this shield though and I must say it is nice. I prefer 2hs, but since I really am not dps, what does it matter? Effect on shield, quicker 1h swings, more stats? Pretty good trade off for slightly more dps eh? Anyways, great shield for anyone who uses if you got a good 1hander to back it up. Have fun all.
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 01 2003 at 2:43 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This thing sucks, as do all 1h/shield combo's for pallies. I got it cuz it was gonna rot, and i've used it once, furious bash doesn't do squat (in fact it seems like an aggro DECREASER) all in all i'd much rather see a decent 2hs or 2hp drop of RD than this piece of junk, the only thing that would make up for it is if we could wear this on our back.
Best for Paladin/SK

I think the guys at SOE just got lazy on this guys drop table, and just added a bunch of worthless classes to it. Tried to make something for everyone.

Honestly, this shield would be best for a Paladin or an SK. Yeah I hear warriors like furious bash and all, but they can easily obtain a warrior only furious bash 4 item in bot. Pally/Sk going to use this as main gear. All the time. Not switch out when bash up. If a warrior really thinks this is so uber for them, I recomend sit/camp/delete. The FB3 doesnt compinsate for loss off 50% of there DPS.

As for Ranger, Bards, and Rogues, shame on you for thinking of rolling on this, You dont want agro! You are all duel wielder's and the DPS you give out is better than these stats.

Funny, I always thought keeping aggro was more important for a warrior than DPS in a raid. maybe im wrong.
RE: Best for Paladin/SK

As a paladin, the only thing I can say about this shield is that it's too bad I can't equip it in my back slot. The stats are nice, and the STA and raw HP are really nice.

Not sure about SK's, but you'll be hard pressed to see a paladin giving up their trusty two-hand weapons to wield this thing in battle.

Besides, we don't need furious bash to get or hold aggro. Two stuns on the mob before it reaches camp, and a couple during the fight, and the mob is locked onto the paladin standing in front of it.

And believe me, at a absolute minimum, 95% of those paladins who can obtain this shield will have a nice two-hand weapon in his/her hands.

The only exception to this MIGHT be when the bash is needed on specific mobs as extra insurance to interrupt a gate or other undesired spell.

Actually you see alot of paladins that are raiding elemental planes starting to use 1handers in POP. And this shield and the basalt one that drops in fire are being used alot. Reason being is that there are some really comprable 1 handers out there Gleaming Knights mace and Gem encrusted axe being the 1 handers of choice. Sk's also get the hammer of sledging from air. This and the fact that being able to equip a shield that has decent hp, ac and stats makes the slight drop in DPS not all that bad.

Don't forget the Hopebringer, shiled of strife combo.

If the focus effect is a target player gain more agro from hits, this is definately a plus for MA's. Monks and Rogues are hard to keep agro on sometimes, especialy at high levels with high damage output and BS's. But what I don't get, is why this is made bard useable. Bards don't -want- agro unless we are tanking, for the lack of tank, and which is... well... retarded.

bards can't bash as it is...But this I could see myself using in certain instances...Like, using this in offhand and throwing up a primary instrument. It'd be great for the stats and such, or any shield could be used this way for that matter, like on raids where the extra stats help. But I'm 62 and no epic yet, /cry, and its not in sight as it is.
RE: If...
# Jun 27 2003 at 11:25 PM Rating: Decent
Ah, not true! Barbarian mask allows any bard/rogue to slam, which is the large race equivilent to bashing. (IE, it still works with it.)

So yes, bards can use this item to bash with... but why? WHY SONY?!
RE: If...
# Jul 28 2003 at 9:59 AM Rating: Default
slam is bashing with the shoulder. not with a shield. although it does check on bash skill )

SK a more viable tank ??? What a ******, as a 52 SK I have no problem with agro control, I can take and hold agro when and where needed. War's are of course the better tank but SK's have and always will be aviable option.
RE: Frugtard !
# Dec 09 2002 at 3:42 PM Rating: Decent
hehe hey there SK...let me tell you, that as a ranger i would take an SK mt over warrior any day in an exp group... maybe on a raid i'd prefer a warrior... but for the everyday grind? lol... I pull agro off warriors constantly and its such a waste of DPS to have to chain jolt, but i rarely, if ever, pull agro from SKs... and yes i do 2hs sometimes and yes i have pulled agro off of warriors with 2hs... but like i said... SK rule for exp groups...and keep the pain recourse coming :)
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 30 2002 at 7:23 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) woot! finaly a smart guy! =-) yess SK's rule as MA in Exp groups. and yes they make best offtanks and inAlotta cases best MA on raid. those warriors better be gearing up fast, the SK's are coming and we gonna take over. who can argue with the best wepon ratios, best aggro managment?
RE: Frugtard !
# Jan 09 2003 at 10:06 PM Rating: Default
Well what u are saying could be true, but i have seen a ranger(without attacking it) pull aggro off a wiz who just MBed a mob and sat down.

J/K but had to say it, I like my ranger alt.
RE: Frugtard !
# Jan 21 2003 at 12:00 AM Rating: Decent
Seeing as how MB has a whole 1 point of aggro anyone could outaggro it.
alla wrong ..

http://lucy.fnord.net/spell.html?id=2457&source=Live

lucy has it listed as not a stun but a 30% increase in hate from spells/bashing wich would make paly/sk's a more viable tank as they can hold aggro easier :)
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 07 2002 at 5:21 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) But why can this also not be for Ench and other casting classes since they all also need stats that this offers?
RE: Nice?
# Dec 08 2002 at 3:23 PM Rating: Decent
ok, enchanter right, why do you want a focus that gives you agro, my experiance as a tank shows that enchanters and other classes that might want these stats but cant use it, do not like agro, because they die if they get agro...
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 07 2002 at 3:37 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) But why cant Warriors have something like this for the shoulder slot, since Barbarian's, Ogre's, Troll's and Vah shir are large races and can bash with out a shield.
Its a proc

The effect on this is a proc when you bash, giving you a 30% chance to stun when it procs. I don't think it is level dependant so you could probably stun mobs above level 55.
effect
# Dec 06 2002 at 10:52 PM Rating: Default
so is the 30% chance to stun a +30% in that you have an increased chance to stun (would make more sense) or just a flat you have a minimum 30% chance for it? Being the first melee focus effect besides vengeance i've ever seen, i'm curious which it would be.
Great
