question for those regarding shields...pvp shields that is.

Postby twinkfist » Tue Aug 24, 2010 1:28 pm

i'm using never-ending winter...but i'm probably not going to get any higher than that shield as i don't really raid all that much anymore...not till cataclysm...and probably not going to get to the point where i can actually get a better shield.

so, the wrathful shield...would it be something to look into? just in case i ever do actually progress in an raid instance in the near future?

it has: +564 more armor
+61 stam
+16 more block and 121 resilience
buuuuuuuuuutttt

i'm obiously losing: 42 defense
45 parry
37 shield block
80 str

is it even close or is pve always the way to go?

it's probably a dumb question...but i'm just looking to see if it's even a tiny bit of an upgrade.

Given the "effective health above all" philosophy of main tanking in wotlk, the PVP shield does look better than the 251 version of Neverending Winter. For what it is worth, RAWR gives it the nod too - although it prefers higher item level PvE shields.

Do you play arena? Because it's not that easy to get to a 1800 rating IMO.

If you're not really raiding anymore, I would stick with your current shield. If all you are doing is the occasional Heroic and are massively overgeared for them, the str on your current shield is more appealing.

If you are raiding ICC10 then the Heroic version of your shield drops from Gunship.
