    Default Cleric tanking shields, where?

    I've been using the same shield for quite awhile and am looking to get an upgrade but there seems to be a huge lack of cleric shields.

    Right now I use Resolute Orichalcum Buckler with stats as follows:
    armor: 361
    Int: 5
    Wis: 13
    End: 24
    Block: 15
    Parry: 5

    Looking at loot tables the only shield in experts that doesn't just have the base stats int/wis/end and then just spell crit (sc no thank you) is wall of bones from expert DSM http://rift.zam.com/en/item/83CBDECF.../Wall-of-Bones

    Are these the best shields we get until we can get a raid drop?

    Outside of a blue shield in exp CC, forgot the stats, WoB is the best cleric shield you can find in t2. I'm still using the shield from IT of all places, and it has a terrible amount of end and spell crit of all things. I guess it's nice for threat...

    Yeah. I don't have threat issues so wtf do I need spell crit on a shield for?

    Just looked at the raiding shields. One drops off of Hylas but it's not much better than the shield from DSM. There is a pretty nice one that drops in RoS though. Just would be nice to have a few more options until then.

    There is always a BiS. WoB is our BiS, maybe even from raid drops (havent looked at the shield drops lately), unless you manage to get the legendary from alsbeth.

    The OB is a great stand in (augment it with str/block if you can). Because it is crafted, we really dont need anything else till we get the WoB.
    A Justicar's path is not one of ease. But, hey, we do get to hit stuff.

    Radak's spreadsheet shows shields.

    See Justicar Spreadsheet thread (currently on page two of these forums).

    I've ran DSM maybe 40 times and still can't the damn WoB to drop. Next shiled up is the 10 man raid one.

    there aren't many: so for t2 expert you have pretty much this options

    purple dsm-shield > blue cc-shield > blue augmented crafted shield

    and it's even worse for weapons. there is 1 (one) dedicated tanking weapon for us. it's a purple drop (gecko enclave) in DD. never seen it drop so far, guess other groups are rolling greed on it because they don't need it (like we did for titan slayer in dsm yesterday)

    I've run DSM enough to get the eth trinket for 4 seperate people, and I haven't seen WoB drop.

    Doesn't exist.

    for me it dropped in my first run.
    the gedlo's gavel though took me over 1 month of straight 1-3runs/day to get.

    Smoulderon (first boss of CC) drops a Blue shield which is pretty easy to get. That is your place to start.

    Farm DSM for the Wall of Bones after that. After that, you need a raid.



    I just got the Cleric Shield off of Herald of Gaurath which is amazing, but Hylas also drops a shield (with no mitigating stats) as another option.

    My suggestion is go to this link: https://spreadsheets.google.com/spre...thkey=CIacp_MG
    Look on the item list and check where the different shields drop.

    And of course if you find a item is missing feel free to post it in the link in my signature (the spreadsheet+item list one)

    Defence is as much a part of war as offense, the shield as important a tool as the sword.
