I have nothing wrong with the term crit cap but I will fight the usage of crit cap tooth and nail for the health of the tanking community. I'm sure it was a slip of the tounge (finger?) for lore to use the term but it was damaging for him to do so exspecially as a tanking celebrity that many look up to.

You sure are going through a lot of trouble just to argue semantics.

Pertaining to the topic, I prefered the Royal Crest due to its superior stamina and relative balance in stats, though I switched to the Ruin shield today when it dropped, just because I like block value =/

That's why :D.

I could say the same, but that would be boring. While the color Majiben uses really tears my eyes and makes me painfully aware that my internal organs are threatening to flee in horror, he makes a very valid point. This site gets read by a lot of people; might as well try to spread the good word. Did you notice how fast "uncrushable" became "block-capped"?

That's a blatant lie. The Barricade looks so much better!

Personally I prefer to go for the Royal crest.

I just don't like paying for a craft which I am going to replace in Naxx..

As for the other shield I don't like much the dodge, even back in TBC. :P

As for good looking, Royal Crest beats em all... the best looking shield after the one from Illidan.

ah personally i went with crygil's as i was having problems getting Royal crest to drop. Badges spent and the next day the Crest drops, go figure...

In terms of looks the crest wins hands down tho. I dont use either now, got lucky and Wall of Terror dropped woop :)

Eh I use the Royal Crest of Lordaeron (better, after killing Mal'ganis 16 times to get it) but I think the emblem one is better, by a miniscule amount. However, I'm barely at def cap right now and waiting to switch out one of my stam trinkets for Lavanthor's Talisman once it drops, so I needed all the defense rating I can get.. and.. well, the shield is simply beautiful. I voted for the emblem one, however, since you did say "setting aside looks." I'm a big fan of avoidance.

Easy choice for me. I am a BS, and Miner. I got my titansteel, and I crafted my shield. I can use the badges to buy other things, like my belt.

Now I sit at 548 def, and that is with a stam trinket, and block one.

The crest has fulfilled my needs thus far. I will most likely upgrade it with the skull shield or Wall of terror from naxx25. the shields at the same iLvl are all side grades in one direction or another, so no REAL need to swap them unless as my gear changes i find a deficiency in some stat (i.e. def dropping too low would push me to a shield w/ def to compensate).

nevertheless, i'd probably regem or not be so lazy w/ enchanting some of my gear to make up for a defense loss rather than swap shields (and thus probably have to re-enchant the new one too).

Snagged a Titansteel when I dinged 80. Not hating it.

I will probably swap to one of those shields with +hit eventually because I fucking HATE h8h8h8h8h8 haaaaaaaaaaate missing with ShoR / HotR.

I miss precision :(
