There are 24 non paladin shields of which 3 out of 24 are capable of having 4 sockets
There are 15 paladin shields of which all 15 out of 15 are capable of having 4 sockets.
If the spirit runeword is the reason we dont have more 4 socket shields then nerf it or delete it all together i dont care what you do to it just give us more shields capable of having 4 sockets.
I posted this in another thread as a possible solution to nerfing it with some fun added in as far as the skills go. Which the skills wasnt what made it over powered but hey lets have some fun and make some valuable if you get a nice roll. i made many stats that vary.
Atleast instead of complaining i tried to come up with a solution that might work to help us get more 4 os shields as spirit seamed to be the stopping factor as to why we dont get more than just the 3 shields. I know it doesnt have 35 fire res on it but i added it to balance out what was removed from original.
Spirit shield would look like this
+1 or +2 skill to a class – varies
10% to 20% fcr – varies
10-15 vit – varies
40-80 mana – varies
+250 defense vs missile
+3 to +8 magic asorb
+35 All resist (normally should have just 35% poison, 35%lightning,35% cold) i added the
+35% fire to make it +35% all res
