<DIV>So we get Runic Shield at lvl 31.  The current spell description indicates that it's an upgrade to Spirit of Badger, but it's not.  The description is supposed to get changed according to the patch notes for the upcomming BIG patch, but here's what I found.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Runic Shield increases Power, Sta and AC ... not Str and AC.  Also, even though it's a higher level spell, it raises AC less than Badger does.  BUT, Runic Shield and Badger actually stack.  So having both up you get a Power, Sta, Str and decent AC buff.  Since it has a Power component, I'm gonna have to see if it stacks with other Priest buffs.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Anyways I thought I'd mention it in case people were confused.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

My big issue with RS is it's an upgrade to Auspice. It requires 2 concentration slots to cast.So I'd have to drop another useful group buff to throw it on someone - and loose my bearform.It's just not worth it IMHO.

<DIV>Aye - the only time I use Auspice is when I'm tradeskilling.</DIV>

<DIV>I got this one yesterday and thought it was crap (compared to badger that I thought it was upgrading). Now I will have to figure out my buffing all over again <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>
