    Of all the Surge shields I have trashed out of treasure chests I just got 2 silver surge shields out of the same chest, has anyone ever seen this before ? Not sure if they are worth more than garbage points or not.

    Yes, I have one of the Silver Bronze surge shields, and they also come in the Small Plate shield style as well, those are just less common. Does not seem to be anything special about them, so I would say trash em.

    Did they come from an Ilshenar map? I think all the silver ones I've got came from Ilsh.

    Do shields still spawn in any color? I've done a few dozen level 5s and level 6s for the first time in a good long while, and I've yet to see a shield, orb or sash. I've gotten one forged pardon.

    I believe, altho no one has ever confirmed it on the boards, is that something somewhere borked tmap loot. The last 3 months or maybe more, the loot has beeen totally crrap in the 6's and 7's. We actually did a 7 that netted us 3 refinement ingreds, a recipe, aa wooden horse, and nothing else you would expect from a map that level. Bored one day, I did a Devious, and actually cleaned up! so go figure...

    Maybe theye will correct this in their "overland spawn" loot fixes they mentioned.
