    Is the bloodshield any good?

    Post by Wade_Wilson on Mon Apr 02, 2012 5:49 pm

    I was considering using it in my PvP cosplay build, but it seems to have pretty mediocre stability, even at +15. Is it worth using? A balder shield at +2 has more stability, interesting.

    I use it rather than the balder because I know it better and helps with Lifehunt but balder is better

    Yes. Especially with so many kats running around slashing. One of my favorite shields. Stability isn't as important in PvP (unless you are a turtle). You block one hit and move on.

    Its my second choice for pvp, first being the darkhand.

    I don't use shields often, but when I do I prefer the bloodshield.

    blood shield has awesome res, and unless youre tanking its not a good shield. you should check out the effigy shield, its awesome for pvp whre you need to dodge more than guard.

    Yeah, the res is whats good about it, IMO. I use it for my poison dex build. Allows you to throw dung piles without much of a penalty.

    i feel the same way about the effigy shield, i have a fire +10 and it's awesome. i wish it had a fast parry though, makes no sense since it's a small shield.

    edit; also a fire gargoyle shield is pretty good too.
