    Does this sheild have any use or value?

    I just found this unique sheild and was kinda confused ..its a 1.10 sheild with dr but other then that it looks kinda crappy

    spikethorn
    blade darrier
    45% block
    150 enhanced defence
    +122 damage goes to attacker ( based on char lvl of 89 )
    +250 durablilty
    30% fhr
    15% damage reduction
    1 socket

    Even though it has dr i couldnt see myself useing this sheild because of the lack of resists and bad block. So like that thread says..can u see a use for this sheild? And i know this isnt the trade forum but what whould its value be ?
    thx

    Zappa already made a thread like this a little while back. The general concensus was that it's hardly worth keeping if it spawns with only one socket, and even with two sockets it's pretty useless/worthless. Just make an Iron Golem outta it.

    Yeah, I agree. The Head hunter's Glory trolls nest is a disappointment! I have a 3 socket one and the only hope is to have 3 p-diamonds for great resists but thats pretty much it. The block % is low and really has no other good mods besides the poison and fire resists. Maybe a mercenary sorc can use it with a hel rune in it.

    For my necro, a p-diamond homonuculus is far superior to that because of what else it brings to the table.

    I am using it on a WW Scheaffer Druid along with Disciple set and doing great. Stuck a diamond in it and went. I have max rez and the DR is cool and he is no dex regardless so WTF!

    Its not something to build around but hell it works!

    I found the unique sacred rondache a few days ago. I kept it but really can't see using it because it has no resists.

    I think Blizzard just put these in for ppl to find, thereby further decreasing the likelihood that one gets something useful when an item is rolled...Please sir, may I have another Rattlecage?

    Snide remarks directed towards the moderator are even more ill advised than cross posting.

    Rattlecage was available in 1.09, so your example is flawed, yet it still gives off the right point.
