Diablo® III

Your Off-hand

I'm currently halfway through NM right now, and am still using Mojo as an off-hand. I've heard later in late NM and beyond, that WD require a shield for survivability. Have you all found that to be the case?

I'm in Hell past past act 1, and still haven't used a shield. Actually have decided to go with a 2h weapon loaded with vit/int. You'll be squishy but I've also been using a build that's mostly all survivability + heavy damage/vision quest.

I've been using mojos since the beginning, now in A1 hell. I thought about switching for a shield too, but that lowers your DPS. I suppose it will be a good idea getting late Hell/Inferno.

I haven't used a shield since normal. Caster shields have been rare and my friends playing barbs use shields and still get squashed in inferno. I don't think the shields make up for the damage being done in those levels you need distance and CC.

I've been using a shield, and it helps drastically in hell, I have around 40-50k HP (keep getting gear, swapping in and out pieces to see the effects) and there's a huge difference having a shield and not having one
