I remember it was a mistake that the property was removed from spawning shields. I also remember the reasoning was stupid for why they were not going to put it back, something about shield not realistically being able to help you hit people (though pieces of armor and jewelery can?). I think it is due time to put it back. There is absolutely NO REASON for shields not to have HCI. All currently spawning shields are crap to the rare HCI shields which should not be as rare and as expensive as they are. Also if you want realistic reasons (why in a FANTASY game?) people can shield bash and hit with their shields. Add it back.
