Mystic Belt
Shield (CL:1, 2/day)
Wisdom +4

Routinely on the AH for 1M-2M gold. Sure Shield clickies are useful for classes without other options, but that price isn't comparative to the benefit. It's not even close to the usefulness of Planar Gird which is the same price range.

It's also Wis +4 at ML:7 rather than 9 is it not? With no RR...

Anyways, it's worth what people are willing to pay for it - in light of how cheap plat is in time investment once you hit the high levels, I'm pretty certain it's just dogged determinism not to be cheated by the player base that keeps prices in check... Even people floating in gold dislike feeling like they are being taken advantage of or not charged a "fair" price.

Its valuable NOT because of the shield clicky, but because its +4 Wisdom on a BELT. The Belt slot often has more choices/flexability than the Necklace or Ring slot, which is were Wisdom bonuses are exclusivily located EXCEPT for this one item(There may be other rare named items but non static loot its the Necklace or Ring for Wisdom) . So basically, it frees up the Necklace or Ring slot for more important things.

Meh, I don't see WIS on a belt as a good thing. Interferes with CON/False Life belts. WIS on a ring works just fine until you have concordant opposition goggles.

Well use the plat you got off others to pay for one. like you would sell something for going price or lower. Ha. Thats funny

Another thing to keep in mind: Just because an item is posted for 1 or 2 million buyout it doesn't mean anybody will buy it for that price - maybe the belts that you routinely see posted are really the same belt posted over and over again. ;)
