I like that it has no mods, maybe they're extending the hidden lower mana cost armour inherent bonuses and just removing mods from everything.

so i gotta log into the game now? i'm not that curious.
Ive not looked either so have not idea. Would be pretty silly if it didn't show any mods when viewing in the store though.

2 mods, 10% DCI and Spell channeling and a durability of 255/255 and it's not imbuable either.

Maybe you will not receive the penalties if used with a gargoyle.



You must have a really crappy shield if you think that.
Was thinking more of the upper hand to collecting the virtues like Tamers getting Honour for those hard to reach Pets, now alot easier if you pay for it. Ect. ;)

Maybe. It's not very clear - "This shield grants a bonus virtue points gained while equipped! ' - "a bonus virtue points" - ouch, my grammar sense is burning me - I'm guessing it doesn't mean you gain a virtue any faster but maybe an extra circle of virtue, like 6 dots instead of 5 when equipped - but that's just a guess - who's going to pay the money to actually find out?

That's why I mentioned in the other post...you don't HAVE to pay money to find out because it's been on Test Center for awhile now....why people have such an aversion to test center and complain that it's useless and then say stuff like this.... :/

I don't go on the test center because my UO time is very limited and that's not what I pay for - and I think I have a right to complain about shoddy communication when they're putting something up for sale - you don't think every potential buyer was supposed to be on the test center, do you? They need to communicate better, period

Until testing for the last global publish, all the test gates were in New Haven. Currently, they are in the new Britain Commons - including a gate for the shield.

That being said, BS's marketing of, well, everything, leaves much to be desired. With three extra characters they could have saved themselves from some criticism.

I'm not sure the person doing a lot of their write-ups and postings speak English as a first language. Now, I'm no perfectionist and mess up a lot, but I'm not writing things for a big company that is going to be out tehre on the WWW as advertisement, explanation, or encouragement to buy a product.

At the end of the day spend one whisper cycle at the named Balrons in chaos. Get your Lord back and honor up.

Better do that in Dungeon Blackthorn, tram or fel side. You get fame, karma and honour back up with the change for a minax artie drop.
Better honour, karma and fame gains fel side, though.

Well the shield is nice if you aren't an ARCHER. If you are an ARCHER it's WORTHLESS. Which sucks...

Everyone knows that archers are amoral, anti-virtuous scoundrels! :devil:
Whatever... this is why I'm a Knight of all Virtues worked up without any bonus... But still the shield does NO good at all for an Archer can't I get a version of that bonus on a Quiver???
