View Full Version : Kite and Tower Shields

As of Last nights patch   -Kite shields now block with the same effectiveness as Tower shields. I don't really agree with this. I can understand trying to class balance with the new Combat system but  this is  takeing away one more thing that I and most others  love about our Guardian class. Why even  bother with playing a Guardian if yet another  thing  that makes a Guard diffrent  is being taken away little by little.  We can't do massive amounts dps  like the other plate classes  (Mind you we don't want dps).   All we have is our defensive skills and equipment  to rely on to make us a wanted class.  Shields being  one of our valuable commodities.  You also cannot  say a kite shield will block the same as the Tower. Look at the diffrence in size  of the 2. <div></div>

I would be ok with it if they had the same block % (amount) so long as tower shields have improved damage mitigation.

Shields don't have mitigation. <div></div>
