View Full Version : Battered Guardian Shield

I've just gotten a Battered Guardian Shield (http://itemwiki.cubicleninja.com/images/ShowImage.aspx?itemID=1272&thumbnail=0) but found no crafting info for it.

Googling the item name suggest that it can be combined with a DDO store shield (?! Never noticed that DDO store was selling shields in the first place... :D)

Can anyone confirm?

And where should such crafting take place?

And does anyone know the result of the crafting?

Done it on one of my toons a few weeks ago - it can be combined with one of the store-bought shields using the stone of change (the Deneith one iirc), but all it does is change the skin, no amendments to its stats which is pretty sucky - you think it'd upgrade it to a +5 with the other stats... Still, the immunity to fear granted by it makes it pretty handy for my tank when wandering the desert but the shield of reflection is the really decent one to try & get for general use since it grants earthgrab guard.

I found another post which talks about this item. http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=288584

The result seems to be just a change in appearance, no change in stats.

Wow thanks for the info.

That shield sucks big time. Paying a +3 shield on DDO store just to get some appearance change on a crappy item? Oh my! And I thought Armor Appearance kits were the bottom of the barrel... :)

Will keep it in my "Things You Know You'll Never Use But are Reluctant To Drop Anyway" inventory tab at the bank. Until I need room.
