"It is so much easier to reach 540 defense in WotLK than TBC. You have the entire Tempered Saronite set to get you there along with the horde rep shield and a quest mace."Okay folks, let's get something straight here.This shield should NOT be disenchanted, or sold EVEN if you get the badge or HCoS shield.Reason: That Saronite set is nice, the blues from Wyrmrest are nice, but they are ALL higher in Defense than the Tier items. WHAT?That's right, when you upgrade your gear (and you will) you will start seeing your defense plummet faster than Apple Stock the day Steve Jobs dies. (Do not start this rumor, they will find me and break my legs)I just got my T7 chest. Lost close to 30 defense rating. This shield is the only reason I am still over 540. I can upgrade this to something with more avoidance or block, but when I need to juggle some pieces after upgrades, this shield will consistantly be available to keep me high enough that I can not hurt a raid's chances with .1% chance crit coming up at the wrong time. Because if you have a 1 in 1000 chacne to get crit, it will happen 100% of the time when facing Patchwerk as MT. Do NOT underestimate this shield.
