    Exile in Non-Eth Shield?

    Hi All--

    Just quick question. As the topic says, is it worth the runes to make exile in a non-eth shield or should I get an eth shield for it?

    Thanks,

    JEB90

    My 2cents:

    PvM - Use HoZ.

    PvP - Don't BM.

    Hoz(Up'd for ubers) has great mods for regular pvm and smiting in pvp. Up the Hoz for Ubers/pvp smiting, use Dracs for Life Tap in UT.

    Why hoz? Exile seems the obvious winner for both pvp and pvm. Theres no way hoz can beat the godly defense, lifetap and defiance with a couple of extra skills..

    why exlie? HoZ is a million times cheaper and with dracs you still get LT. For general pvm (and UT for that matter) the rest of the bonuses on an exile isn't at all needed, nice but not at all vital or worth the cost imho.

    Not everyone bots and has HR's coming out of their yazoo - and i'm in no way implying that zrk or anyone else bots, just pointing out that many posters completely miss the cost aspect to some of the advise they give.

    Back on topic, if I was going to make an Exile I certainly would never make it in a non eth, non elite shield.

    For pvp, the lifetap makes it BM - while not everyone cares about that stuff, don't expect to be taken too seriously if BM is your forte

    PvM wise, considering the rarity of high runes, I think its too expensive to not have a nice shield for it - if we were going off of season 5's ladder prices, it be a different story.

    Exile in pvp? Do you know what a pvp smiter uses?

    Exile a million times cheaper than hoz? Then why are people expecting hrs for hoz? That is like a mass opay for that one easy to find shield. But if you are using upped hoz for uber make sure you have last wish pb and dracs and you will have an easy uber run. Only thing is that the last wish is very expensive so beware.

    Hoz is generally still cheaper than Exile - it's not "easy" to find because its a gilded shield and drops poorly to begin with, but its still easier overall to acquire than an exile through trade.

    An Ebugged Eth Vortex Exile adds a huge chunk for your def bonus from holyshield and the defiance it gives.

    Not sure why you'd mention a Last Wish as its insanely expensive in the current market (not like season 5) and far from necessary, though it does make it easier for sure.

    Well the qlvl for gilded shield is 51. So how could it be hard to get? Thats what I dont understand.

    Its because its a gilded shield - look up the item generation tutorial on the wiki - it goes into far better detail than I could.

    But to summarize, its treasure class is full of lots of stuff and is less likely to drop should that class be selected as opposed to other items in said treasure class.
