I just traded my SCHW even for this shield, I think the price has come down alot on this or someone really wanted a haste item. 40 sv fire is sweet, but a SBS is a better shield overall for general use as its +10 sv cold and magic and has 40 hps to boot. Anyway with this Im close to 280 resist fire with my potions of cold ( +25 sv fire and +25 AGI ). If you need save fire gear Id reccomend a stone of morid ( 30svf/30svc ), firekeepers tunic ( 20 svf ) , Lodizal shield on back slot ( 10 svm, 20svc, 20svf ), enshrouded veil ( 10 svf ), opal stein ( 10 all saves ), and BD earrings and bracers ( 4/6/6/11/11 and 9/9/11/9/9 on each saves ) as some gear that is alot cheaper and has good saves.

I quite agree that this would make a nice addition to anyones raid/resist gear. Need me one, need me a book offa Naggy's stupid butt and this would make life so much nicer when I go to kill his wurmy *****

#Anonymous, Posted: May 21 2001 at 1:37 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Jeez guys you greedy cusses, I personally don't care who uses it or wears it, I'm actually pretty happy when my clerics live, means that the whole party has a better chance of serviveing and not the long body runs with coffins and the like. I would be happy if my clerics all had 200 wis, saves, and could be put outta harms way to keep me and my group alive. I get tired of seeing you guys whine and moan about this one has this this one has that, grow up. If your partners have the best they can have then there is a better chance you'll live and eventually get it for yourself. Why be so selfish?
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 23 2001 at 3:01 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Im not sure anyone else has noticed but, that is a CLERIC using that shield! How stupid is that?? i mean all the saves are nice for a cleric but come on! this is a tank shield....glad im not on that server in that stupid guild for giving such a great SK and pally shield to a cleric. flame me if you want...but thats just utterly stupid
#Anonymous, Posted: May 22 2001 at 6:22 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I kinda agree, it has been my experience that if a cleric can use an item, they get it, (except for haste items lol) regardless of whether another class would make better use of it.

well - certainly wouldnt agree with ya. On Naggy raids or raids on mobs with same lewt table, most casters get screwed outa things " because it is a melee " item this and that. Actually, I am getting pretty tired of people making those assumptions. Quit day dreaming, it doesnt bring you close to the item you desire =) and quite frankly, I do believe that since they participated on the raid, they should be able to roll on ANY item their class was considered for, period.

If you look at the Cleric he has his Epic and is in Full Planes gear, that means his wis is most likely over 200 by enough that he can afford to use this shield to boost his saves. Also they may have just used the Cleric to take the pic because it looks good with his gear.
cool looking

+40 to fire resist? That is a must for Trolls. Is this a straight drop, or is there a quest involved, also if it is a drop how often?
# Feb 08 2001 at 8:41 AM Rating: Default
Why would a Rogue want one? I see NO single thing that gives a Rogue anything with this, Just a thought, though.

Sheilds look really cool when you use a spear or harpoon with them, and the added charisma might be helpful for gnomes or dwarves.
Not really

But the negative agility hurts rogues since thats like int to a caster, LoL.

what makes agi so good for rogues?
RE: Rogues?
# Feb 08 2001 at 9:16 AM Rating: Decent
Just because a class can use something doesn't mean they should. They can use it because they are a shield capable class no other reason.

you don't see that ac, str and most of all fire resistance? nice raid item in places like Soluseks.

Agreed. 40 FR... <Faint> Got a Naggy raid coming up on March 23 or so, wish we could get one of these for the local Shammy or Pally

Any rogue that would *ever* use a shield is a complete moron. Same with warriors. Only people who should even concern themselves with this shield is druids, pallys, SKs, clerics, and shamen.
RE: Rogues?

My warrior uses a shield, and isn't a moron.

As a small race, my warrior swiches to a shield to bash and interupt spell-casing NPCs, then switches back to her off-hand weapon. Comes in handy.

On raids, she'll sacrafice AC gear for resist gear, and that often means wielding a shield. While that lowers her damage output, the net result is less of a need for heals, so the healers on the raid can concentrate on the main assist.

Ever pull a mob who likes to snare/root? While I much prefer pullin' with my SK, more often then not my Warrior spends time pulling in groups. After tagging the caster-mob with an arrow, switching to a shield to help mitigate spell damage results in making it back to the party in one piece.

By the time someone is able to get this shield, they'll know whether or not it would benefit their toon. While everyone has a right to his or her own opinion, calling someone a moron for doing things differently than you would isn't called for.

Ultimately, it's a game. Use a shield, don't use a shield, wear cloth armor in the arena in Kael--whatever it takes to keep this game fun for you.

Cloth armor in Kael? My warrior wears a cloth robe as MA in ToV, it's dyed to almost black, just because he looks cool doing it. Not like those mobs are worth worrying about anymore. It's always fun to stand there and get a ss in a 2 ac cloth robe tanking one of the nameds in ToV. Whatever makes it fun!!!!
