    First i wanna say i love this dungeon now.

    Is Shame as big of a hit in prodo shards as it is in siege? Im from siege and i gotta say shame was so badly needed but with all the cursed items are prodo shards loving this as much as we siege players do?

    I would have to say yes! I keep any good weapons cursed or not! now armor is another story if its a peace that losing will mess my suit up then I wont use it! other than that its great

    dunno most of the armor and weapons that arn't cursed are junk cant imbue much of anything because most everything has 5 properties,really only way is if it has self repair or like 100% poison weapon do you get an imbue slot,plus then theres things like enhance pots on 2-handed weapons..... dunno been doing alot of hunting in shame diff levels jus seems like i should have gotten something ubber that is not cursed that i can ue on one of my characters

    There are a lot of good usable stuff coming from Shame, but it will take time before they really become widely used.

    Here is what I have seen so far:

    - A lot of people don't know what is good or not. A typical example are people trashing a good brittle shield, without realizing that without parrying a shield doesn't take hits. Most people also don't understand yet the way the resists work on Shame armors (the fact that they drop with base+5, base+10, base+15 or base+20, this last one beeing over anything you can imbue, and that's before enhancement), same goes with many other mods (LMC10, LRC25, etc) that allow to use some classical artifact combinations that were impossible before.

    - A lot of people don't realize that you can't possibly build a good suit without trading Shame parts, because there are so many kinds, and yet it is currently nearly impossible to find any vendor selling anything but cursed/cannotrepair crap

    The situation will probably change when the new stuff start dropping in other dungeons, treasure/mib chests etc... Also we need to know exactly how the upcoming "re-forging" runic changes will work, because no one is going to start rebuilding a full suit to have to trash it after next publish.
