Need help with shield selection. Ok, so here's the deal. I've decided to go ahead and make a hammerdin. I've decided to make a spirit and roll until I get 35fcr. I have a 4os Crown Shield with 45 res. My question is should I just go with the Crown Shield, or should I try and trade for a Sacred Targe with decent res? The major difference, in my eyes, is the defense. However, I don't know how much of a difference that will make. I'm going to max Holy Shield, so max block shouldn't be difficult to achieve either way. I just don't know if the 100~ defense difference will really make a significant difference, and Iâ€™m likely going to turn the Crown Shield into a spirit anyway.
