Nice defense, but Ethereal and no autorepair is bad. And resistances are low.
I wouldn't keep it. Just my opinion :)

That's a great shield. There was a bug with upgrading Ethereal armor-class items, that prevented the Defense Rating to be upgraded to an elite level. I'm sure it effects unique armor, I'm not sure about rare.

I would have to agree. Definitely worth the upgrade and zoded. The strength requirements will be super low, the smite damage will be nice, the chance to block is very good, and it has nice defense and resists. All in all, a very nice shield. And one other thing, you won't have the same f***ing shield as every other copy cat on b.net.

I would wait with the upgrading until Blizzard fixes the bug... If you decide to upgrade it now, it will most likely end up with less defense than it has now.

youre all crazy

You should definitely keep it and dont bother Zod-ing it. Just make sure to use holy shield whenever you use it and its durability will never go down. Might wanna be very careful in PvM tho, but its a good PvP shield if u cant afford Zak. If you dont want it ill gladly take :D

I hope you didnt upgrade it. Ethereal bonus does not work on upgraded items. And HoZ is way better then that.
