Was using the Alb Exceptional Buckler (99%) last nite, was testing end cost with slam. Tbh its quite nice uses hardly any end, dmg is pap tho guess thats the trade off for lower end costProspero said:Does anybody know if the new exceptional shields have any advantage (speed, damage, block chance, ...) over the old reinforced shields except their looks (well, if you would call a barn door look an advantage )?
Tested the Large Sheild VS a Exceptional Large Blocking shield, im pretty sure that there is definatly a greater end usage on Slam with it, making its slam usage w/o End chant/buff/song very very dubious.Prospero said:Problem is: the buckler is a SMALL shield. Small shields have always used up much less end on Slam then large shields do and have always been faster. I would more like to know if there is any difference between the large shields (except their look of course).
Related question: I heard the (or some?) of the TG large shields are faster than the usual reinforced tower shield. Is that true? And is it worth getting one for that purpose (I don't like the stats on them, so would only get one for the speed)?
no.Korax said:Slower weap = more end = more dmg
dont think a weapon\shield affect the end usage compared to dmg.
