    Dear event pros, I need some shard shield advice.
    I have two accounts that qualify for picks.
    Account one has four shields.
    Cats
    Atl
    Baja
    Origin

    Account two has 7 shields and one pick left
    Atl (2)
    Cats (2) (one of these was a mistake @Mesanna it would be great to be able to have 1 chance to swap shard shields for a different shard)
    Napa
    Chessy
    GL

    Where should my last pick of the year go?
    I have a character on LS already and I am building one on Legends so I don't need either of those really.
    I also have a fully developed character (or two ;) ) on Pacific and Sonoma.

    Choices are Lake Austin, Drachenfels, Oceania, Europa, or an Asian shard.
    What shard would you pick with your last pick of the year?
    I don't just do events for the drop but the depth of character. I enjoy a good story.
    I enjoy playing with friendly people. If the shard is full of xshard haters I'd rather pass until next year.
    I would also like to be able to get a focus on a good night.
    So, uh, friendly players, good EM (drops and story combined), helpful people.
    What do you guys say?

    LA: Good story although a bit long winding, average to good drops, drop rate is not consistent from month to month
    Europa: Good story, Returning EM but no drops from new returning EM yet (Prior history might shed some light?)
    Oceania: New EM, With only one event hard to judge story, good-decent first two drops
    Asian: You wont be able to follow the story, drops are decent to very good, usually longer than our events, laggy
    Drachenfels: Very good to amazing drops, nonexistent storylines, strong competition



    Soooo, I would pick LA + either Europa or Oceania (Oceania is new but off to a good start but will it remain consistent?, Europa has history with Emile Layne but was it good or bad?)

    LA (my home shard) is mostly a bunch of kind and very helpful people. rarely if ever do i hear any complaining about xsharders. promathia summed up the events pretty dead on. aside from the events, running around with LA peeps is normally pretty fun if you can find any on, it's a ghost town most of the time. also i can craft/imbue almost whatever you need there

    I'm not really an event pro, but I vote for Lake Austin, it was the 3rd shard shield I got originally right after Atlantic and Pacific. Loved the players, were always extremely helpful and kind.
