would seem to be the best choice for this shield. With +73 healing, as well as 3mana/5sec, this would be excellent for any shaman or paladin. Add a +12 Intellect enchant on this and you bring the total up to 40 Intellect (An even 600 mana - 660 mana for a Holy Paladin). Interested to see what it looks like.
I wouldn't got so far and call it a Shaman-only shield, but since Supremus drops the Felstone Bulwark, which is the better choice for a Pala, the Bastion of Light should be going to a Shaman first. And if you can beat Anetheron, you can beat Supremus as well.
is this obtainable by players?
if so i have never seen anyone with this shied
personally, as a shaman, i find Enamelled Disk of Mojo(
) to be a better option, if not superior to the bastion of light.
I just got this last night and tossed a 22 healing gem in it. I figure i'll use it for most fights unless i really need more mp5, then i'll go back to the kara shield...but with +40 healing over it, plus added hp/int/armor and the fact that you still get benefit from the socket bonus, it seems to me that +22healing is the gem of choice. I'm a holy pally and have +120mp5 or so unbuffed so i figure i can afford to lose 7mp5 for the added stats.
Going from kara shield to this one:
+42 healing (with an epic +heal gem)
At this point most healers should have different sets for different fights (+heal, +regen, +haste, +crit)
One interesting thought though is if you have a haste set you can put a +10spell haste gem in this. It's not much, but considering no shield in the game has +spell haste it's better than nothing.
Overall, this isn't actually a great shield. Sure, it has a lot of pure +heal, but in late game raiding situations, most people should have a good chunk of +heals from their other gear.
Lots of people label it is a "shaman shield", but from experience most shamans I've known have chosen to keep their
due to Mp5, or pass on it until the
comes up if they're hung up on crit. Shamans that have taken this shield are either using a crappy offhand and want a shield, or have the Karazhan shield, which people tend to be sick of after progressing through t5 content.
The only reason I would take this shield (as a paladin) would be if I was low on +heals from stacking spell crit or Mp5, or if my guild could absolutely not in their life dodge volcanoes, in which case we would have trouble taking down Supremus.
My advice (which isn't necessarily the right advice) is to not waste DKP on this unless there is no other option for you. ZA resets every 3 days, and dragonhawk isn't really that hard to beat, so I'd advise getting
Very nice healing shield, with a teardrop living ruby the +healing would be bumped up to 80 and grant the 1 mp5 bonus as well. Fair amounts of int and stam as well, with 28 stam and 6k armor, it is definitely viable for PvP as well.
Drops of Anetheron, the second boss in Hyjal Summit (caverns of time).
Why does everyone assume "omfgpallyitem"? My Shaman got this last night and it's amazingly good with a Royal Nightseye gem in it for both paladins and shamans.
Nice one for healer accounts + can put nice sock in that place. Like 18+ healing makes it even more better !
Or 22 Healing would be better, your choice
what would u say is beter for a holy pally this or felstone bulwark just intersested in hearing some ideas
This item is most beneficial for a Shammy than a Pally at the T6 level instances. Of course both classes can use them well.
If I were a Pally I go for the other shield that has Spell Crit, which helps land crit heals, Shammys need the mana pool and mp5 for their healing.
Seen this drop a couple of times now, and i'm a bit torn over whether to go for this or the
that drops off Supremus in BT for my pally.
I know the common wisdom for pallies is to stack the spell crit. At this point I'm reasonably happy with my crit (more doesn't do any harm though ;)), but could do with stacking more +heal for future encounters (on Gurtogg atm).
I guess I'll probably go for whichever comes up first in the end. :)
<edit> Well, the Bastion dropped tonight for me. Popped a +22 heal gem in there and I'm pretty happy with it I have to say. :)
