Smiled very widely when I read this quote. Very nice thread, good notes for sure. Thanks for the write-up. I've posted this elsewhere, but if you're interested in commenting as well, I'm currently having a dilemma with my shield and was looking for some input:
Basically, I'm curious to know your thoughts on my shield. I wish I had a 30%+ Stormshield or at least a higher block chance on my Sacred Shield, but I can't help but feel it has very good stats and am having a hard time deciding if I should get a Sacred Shield with worse stats, but higher block, or just use this one until I can afford a good Stormshield. I have Helm of Command and an IAS Justice Lantern, so it puts me at 35% block even with this Sacred Shield (it is only 16% by itself). Here are the stats:
16% Block (Naturally, 3706-4706 BV for a Sacred)
78 Resist All
133 Vit (excluding gem)
46 Life Regen
Obviously the stats could be better, but I feel like they are pretty powerful. Should I keep it with the 35% total from my helm/ring until I can get a 30%+ Stormshield? Or would I really benefit from getting a 25%+ Sacred Shield in the meantime with worse stats?
