    Hiya,

    I have been doing the around the world free transfers for people, and I just got my veteran rewards. I have 2 available right now, and will be getting 2 more in about a month for a total of 4 new shard shields. Was wondering which new shard shields I should get? If anyone needs anything transferred from any of the shards below I'd be happy to pick those shards.

    So, which shards should I pick?

    Shard shields I do not have:
    (can pick 2 of these, already picked the first two)

    Arirang
    Asuka
    Balhae
    Formosa
    Mizuho
    Sakura

    Wakoku (Picked It)
    Yamato (Picked It)

    no one seems to ever have wakoku. (me and alexander have been looking) if your planning on using the shields for actual game content tho maybe not the best pick, but for overall transfer service (for me and alex and least) might be one to think about :)

    To be honest I'll probably never use any of them for anything except doing transfers, maybe an event or two, so will be happy to pick Wakoku for you guys :)

    Yamato and Formosa seem pretty popular to.

    I have picked Wakoku and Yamato as my first two. Still not sure which to pick on the others, but am leaning towards Formosa and Sakura since the majority of people so far have seemed to like those two.


    Since the shields start with one token each, I have added Wakoku to the list of shards I'll visit during round 3 next week.

    @Sinder Shayde

    If anyone needs anything transferred from Yamato I would be happy to add that as well :)
