    Gilded Shield

    Just doing mindless MF runs and in the pit drops an unique Gilded Shield. Being the noob that I am, I'm thinking that it's probably junk like Spiked thorns or something. Of course, when I ID it it's a HOZ!!!... Etheral. WHINE!

    Now, what do I do with this? I don't have a Zod, and since it's duration is only 24, I would need a lot of Orts to keep it fixed... I'm assuming that blocking with an etheral shield will reduce it to tatters very quickly, am I right?

    This could actually be worth a fair amount to a rich player willing to zod it.

    Yah but I think that would depend on the ED% on the HOZ to justify using a zod on it. Would need to be high end.

    I have no idea what it's worth. However, it's not worth zoding IMO. If you are lucky, you find a rich dueler who looks for one. You might have to be patient - or just try a "O: eth HoZ, N: [email protected]" trade ;)

    And yes, don't upgrade it, as the eth bonus isn't subject to that. Your HoZ might actually end up with a lower defense rating !

    Holy... golem :)

    This shield is one spell away from being a crusading metal golem :D

    Oh well, still it was cool to get something in my mindless MFing...

    definitely keep this, as there was someone in the USWest trade forum today looking for an ethereal HoZ. I'm not rich enough myself to have a need for one, but there's players out there, and they'll likely pay good if they need something that specific.
