    as far as a good item, yes. Using it will cause your mana to regen at an increased rate. If you can imbue it (not sure) with spell channeling, then you have a nice shield for mages to help with thier mana regen

    Including the new "Brittle" property, it looks like the shield already has 5 properties so I don't think you will be able to imbue it.

    If you do a few of the level 5 or 6 treasure maps, you should be able to get one and test it out. They are not that hard to get and I think they should not be very expensive.
     
  6. So far I have found two kinds of Surge shields - the first and most common is the mana regen with 5 properties. I have found one with Hit Point regen instead, and only had one (I think one) additional property besides the Brittle, which was +1 Cold Resist.

    Both items would be useful after a dirt nap.

    i sam one of the shields on uoguide.com that had the spellchanneling property on it, so that would be useful for mages
