    Yes it is a very good shield. As for its rarity, it is very difficult to find but pretty common in reality b/c of all the dupes. As for its value, it depends on its ed and what realm your on. In us west ladder a hoz that is >190 ed goes for about an ist. A hoz is one of the best shields for just about every pally build with the exception of the dreamadin. Socket it with whatever you are lacking in the rest of your equipment. A common choice is the pdiamond. This gives 19 to all resists and is much cheaper than an um which gives 22(imo its a big waste to use ums in shields). Hoped this helped.

    That's a very nice HoZ, 199% ed is worth a lot. I'd use a p diamond / Um rune for resists or a Ber rune for damage reduction...that HoZ is worth the high rune. Upgraded, it makes a great Smite shield as well.
