you lose to much if you go hybrid spec tbh. red celerity is far to good to miss out on.

on my 2h pala i use this spec
50 2h
34 crush
45 chants
7 shield
rest parry.

this is a very good spec also gives engage if you happen to get targeted by a archer, just switch to shield, turn engage on and look at the ranger/huntar wasting arrows hitting your shield.

Sword/Shield spec:
45 Chants
45 Crush/Slash/Thrust
42 Shield
10 Parry

that spec sounds nice, dont think im gonna go 2 handed, will stay with shield though, choosing between crush and slash though as weapon choice, any that is better for rvr? with styles i mean

im 50 2h, 33 slash, 45 chants, rest parry.. and it kicks ass :flame: rr7 spec tho.

if you insist staying shield specced, go 50 shield. 99% of the melee enemy will be dual wielders(assassins, blademasters, zerkers, rangers..), and 42 shield is kinda nothing. and if you have sacrificed damage by not speccing 2h, at least make your char defensive enough.. 50 shield + mob4+ ftw.

50 shield or 42 doesn't make a whole lot differance against dual wielders, if you are affraid of facing dual wielders go high parry tbh as that gets no penalty against them while shield does.

the only style that hits good for shield pallies is brutalize tho, which is block opening... and as parry is checked before block check, you shouldnt go high parry.

well got 1 level left, so got alittle time to choose, decided not to go 2 handed atleast. so the question is if i should take shield to 42 or 50 and what weapon type i should go with :)

spamethyst/riposte + slam/back slash hits fine as well :m00:

39slash 42shield 44chants 20parry has always been a good spec for me, the parry helps alot vs. dual wielders

crush might be nice etc, but slash works fine imo

I've got that on my Pally now and it is good for PvE in the sense you don't die. But I find it takes forever to kill a high mob. So I'm going to respec back to 48 chant 42 shield 39 slash rest parry because I'm getting RSI twisting!
