    Default Cleric/Warrior shield from Hylas ; Intended?

    Would really like some official response on this, since its potentially HUGE for Justicars if it is indeed intended. My guild is not up to Hylas yet, but I know if it dropped further down the road and I passed thinking it was just a bug and it turns out it wasn't I'd be sad panda, very sad.

    Personally ive seen it drop 3 times, and its meant for warriors. Clerics arnt even viable tanks to use on Lord Greenscale so dont worry about.

    Having a Justicar tank Lord Greenscale activates Rift: Nightmare Mode.

    Bump for actual official reply. I suspect its bugged, since it would make Justicars even better then they already are vs physical dmg compared to Warriors. But I'd like to have it confirmed for real.

    Why would this be a bug? Hylas already drops a warrior shield.

    I've seen him drop the warrior shield 3 times now and the cleric shield twice.

    OP is referring to that warrior shield, since it's cleric usable

    This is a bug, it will be fixed to be warrior only.

    It's probably a good thing. I'd be more pissed if I spent dkp / used whatever system my guild had in place to win an item that gets changed to being unusable.

    lolwut?

    I'm a Justicar tank. I'm doing very well, I don't need a warrior shield to compete with warriors. The only reason Justicars can't tank Greenscale is that we can't spec for magic mitigation, as warriors can. I know Riftstalkers are the best for it, and I don't mind that, though I am a little sad that warriors can kinda tank it, while Justicars are just nightmare mode. While Justicars may be better at mitigating physical damage, were not so much better that people go "omg, get rid of this warrior and get a justicar for this heavy hitting physical boss", so its not like it evens out either.

    This however is a completely different discussion.
