Shields...

General Discussion
I think something should defenetly be done about shields... the only good shield available is Stormshield! Why not add a new plan to craft a Sick shield? like the new craftable items on 1.07

There have been a number of threads about buffing shields. I've made them and so have others.

Shields should roll max 500 str, max 100 AR, MS, crit damage, max of 20% Crit chance IMO, higher regen. I think it should still be less damage than a dual wield but the gap needs narrowed IMO.

Oh boy what is it 5 random rolls? No thanks... Ok wait.. if I can do it for say 10 gold per roll and zero mats it might be worth it since I'd have to roll it like 10,000 times to get a decent one.
I agree...I can tank better with my Wiz carrying a Stormshield but I had to give up 40K dps to do it...need to make them more viable.

Get a stormshield with CC, it can roll up to 10%.
ya that's a really good call. stormshield is the only decent shield and there's still not many ppl that use it. shields need love.
Shields need more than love, they need someone to actually care.

Outside pvp, I never saw anyone with a shield. Yes, shields need to be buffed and so does the damage monsters dish out. They nerfed inferno too many times.
