Hey all. I want to weed out my ever increasing number of shields that I have stored that I "may" use one day. I definitely want to make a warrior that uses a shield, but don't have such a character at the moment. When I did use a shield in the past, the best shields seemed to be the old ones with high HCI on them. Now shields come with so many more mods and you also have Hephaestus as an option. I have not even experienced whether soul charge, reactive paralyze, etc. are useful. So a few questions for the experts: (1) from the random shields which mods are most desirable to you; (2) presume that you can get a legendary shield drop, what combination of mods would make it the perfect shield for a warrior; (3) out of the various specific artifact shields like Hephaestus etc, which ones do you view as useable; and (4) are the old HCI shields worth keeping? For purposes of this discussion, you can safely assume that spell channeling will not be needed but the warrior may have chiv or other spell casting skill.
