    Shiva's Iron shield in PvP

    Post by IV_Mark_VI on Wed Sep 05, 2012 2:55 pm

    Debating this shield in PvP with a longsword. The theory is that heavy deflection would make longsword stabs more lethal. However,s omeone online told me that it's not very good as PvP calculates deflection differently.

    So can anyone fill me in on this? Is deflection not worth having in PvP? I mean, if someone is knowledgeable, they just won't bother to attack the shield, but they have to attack some time, and Heavy Deflection sounds like a good idea...

    Thoughts?

    Awesome. Good to know such a unique and cool looking shield is worthless.

    Cheers!

    Edit: I suppose it's good in PvE though. Hmm...

    I'm pretty sure it works on rapiers and 1h spears too. It's not a great shield but I like it a lot, shame it's crippled by its weight.

    It looks real nice, that's reason enough to use it IMHO.
