Im making a kciker and aim thinking of putting 1 in blade shield....is this a good idea?...and do blade shield get venom?.....
I agree. It is nice for the cold duration of all creatures around you: but here are some of the weakness:kardinaal said:Blade Shield is no longer that useless now. It leeches, it does 1/4 of your normal attack damage on the blades (physical AND elemental), and also Deadly Strike. Cold duration is also 1/4.
I think it's especially nice for chilling (stack cold durations) with a MA assassin, and also getting you nice leech (1/4 weapon damage for every monster in range is still a lot of leech), and mass distribution of poison (venom).
It was great in 1.09 when you could build blenders that would use CB and Freezing mods to kill things. It had autohit, it could be recast to hit very quickly and worked like a modified static and frozen spike-nova. All by itself. That was useful.kardinaal said:Blade Shield is no longer that useless now.

you would end up just not using it for pvm because you would have to re cast it every minute.
