I don't know tbh, I've seen it only 2 times in 15+ runs, and I wasn't paying attention to the tier.

Shield from Ost Dunhoth Fear Wing T2.

Storrand [Teal item]

2,329 Armour
-2% evade
+10% ranged def
+1380 crit def
+522 block
+828 melee def
+23 Might
+101.4 ICPR

It looks superb, really massive silver and black shield. I would post pictures but I do not have it yet, only saw it in passing. I assume it is a rare drop as I have seen it once, and there is nothing on the net about it.

*edit*
I can not confirm if it is a CM chest drop or not, might be as very few kins have downed DB CM on Eldar, this guardian was in the mellowship.

It looks nice indeed, but there's nothing nice about the stats.

In comparison with loramath, it gives +500 armour, +300 melee defence, +100 icpr... so if you can cap other stats why not? also, having 8.6 k morale unbuffed, losing 200 morale is not that important

I agree, the new shield only lacks vit and morale. I have vitality coming out of my ears, and 225 morale is nothing (I equip Marskold) as I have 8,840 without trying. With the new 'store exclusive' setting coming in update 3, the one with +250 morale and +1,300 inc healing on morale become less of an issue.

With scrolls I have MD capped, Block is capped with Ward (obviously not partials, but I don't really have much interest in those), so the only gain would be 500 armour (ignoring the ICPR, a guardian should never run OOP in s&b if you're using consumables except if you're keeping SW on, in which case you're going to get power from a LM anyway).

Not worth loosing 211 morale and 22 agi IMO. "I don't need morale" isn't a very good argument, you don't need many things in this game, you could use any level 60+ heavy shield and you wouldn't notice any practical difference to tanking. Particularly when morale is 1 thing that you cannot cap.

well, having agility capped too, i would prefer gain armour, icpr or even sth else than raising morale. Besides, losing 200 MD rating with glass talisman pocket, the +300 melee defence just keeps me on the edge of capping (i prefer capping melee crit defence - 4220 rating - with the relevant relics than using md ones). And yes i could live without many things in this game, but 12k morale -buffed- for ivar and gortheron fights are more than enough whereas even capping rest of the stats wont help much against higher level raid bosses.
