This shield is useful for grinding low-lvl mobs as a protection pally.
, at level 60 the proc of this shield will give you 250/5=50% block chance, and at level 70 250/7.884614944458 ~= 32.7% block chance for 10 seconds.
At level 60, you gain 1% to your Block Chance for every 5 points of Block Rating. At level 70, you gain 1% to your Block Chance for every 7.884614944458 points of Block Rating.
Excellent shield if you can grab it to farm as a protpally. The proc means you are essentially blocking 75%+ of all attacks, so with low damage, high attack speed mobs this makes you untouchable.
With TBC its not easy to grab but if you have someone helping you out the instances are very simple to a lvl 70.
actually its not a drop, its reward from a chain quest u get further on in Eastern plaguelands ( EP ) u gotta kill balnazaar in stratholme in the scarlet wing ( SOOOOOOOO EASY )... altho ive seen sumone get it, i dont have quest for it, maybe the quest need to be revered ( just after honored ) with argent daw
Everyone Always says you need to do the archavist quest first and burn his study, but I have never dont that quest and neither has my fiancee yet we both got the dreadlords head...
it's very possible this patch, borderline easy
it was very doable last patch.
So Is this the same quest as getting the avenger?
I guess what i am trying to say is can i get both or no?someone please let me know
Same quest, you can't get both.
I took the shield but I would take avenger next time, it probably procs more often. 1% chance is just way to low, would be great for melee tanking if blizz boosted the chance to like 5.
the avenger would be better choice. the shield defanitly aint as good as dracs or barrier shield
Above and Beyond
You need to start the chain by picking up quest "The Archivist".
I have the Sacred Protector from the Blightcaller quest. Seems to be far superior to this one for a Paladin. Can't imagine getting this quest done before Blightcaller, but also this might be a better shield for a warrior, but again, the sword seems far more effective.
There might be SOME cases when a LOT of mobs are hitting you at once, but the effect isn't invlunerable or something that would seem to scale with the 1% chance.
The proc is awesome... If only the block was higher or if only they come out with an epic version of it. The 1% chance isn't as bad as it seems if you're getting hammered on by an instance group of non-elites that were meant to be AoE'd. The only other application is to slap on a shield spike and train a lowbie instance just like warriors used to before the retaliation nerf.
Other than that it's probably one of those things like the Ravager from SM that I wouldn't get rid of for the practicality of the novelty proc. You never know when blizz might do something silly and make you farm for 99999999999999999999999 linen bandages >.<
Does this block buff stacks with holy sheild?
Its a preety decent shield if you do alot of aoe farming as a a paladin, ofc Skullflame shield is better, but harder to get (buying it tomorrow for 400g on Burning Steeps)
Were does it drop or is it made by Blacksmith ?
Does anyone have a pic of this?

Any experience from those that have it as to how often it procs? If it worth it, or is the Argent Avenger a better way to go?
