Best shield for tank crusader
« on: March 26, 2009, 05:52:48 AM »
Hi, I don't want to use the magni's set anymore and im aiming for the best possible defense for my crus. +7 shields are great but im not sure what to buy between this and valkyrians shields... ( or maybe stone buckler worth it even without the cap and armor )

Im asking this for PVM/MVP

Thanks for your answers.

A high-upgraded Stone Buckler of Royal Guard will serve you well as a general shield against MvPs since a good bit of them are Large size.
 
I feel that Valk Shields are better for specific situations, like Thors. :no1:

Especially in Thor's a Stone Buckler works well.

I only use Stone Bucklers on my tank, with set or without. If you face something that breaks shields, then slotted Missions work too, but it's not really efficient to get some, overupgrade and card them, and then only use them on Crusader.

Why on earth would you not want to wear the Odin's set on a tank?
That should be the real question.
Friends! Help! A guinea pig tricked me!

Yes why, oh why!


There are two reasons I can see:
- you need a slot in your headgear
- you need an unbreakable elemental armour

However, for a tank and for most situations, these reasons should be really insignificant.

Argh... I was hoping nobody would ask... Well, as stupid as it may sound for some people, im tired of always wearing the same hat xD . Moreover I will be able to wear slotted hat if necessary and elemental armors

Back to the topic, im a sac/gc crusader, the +6 def of the shields is great but are the biggest damage from monster came from elementals attack ? What is the best for you for mob/mvp ? :confused:

Edit : lol didn't saw the link before posting this message, glad to see someone feel the same way, it means Im not doing something completely useless ( well I guess...)
