    Recommendations for Exile

    I need to know what mods to look for while making an exile shield for my V/T. Any recommendations are welcome.

    a v/t is better off with HoZ and if you are on ladder, an upgraded HoZ is the best shield for a v/t. the +2 skills and +2 combat skill, 50 all resist, 40 iin stats, good block. thats perfect

    now if you must use exile, ethereal vortex shield with the auto mod of 40-45 all resist. exile is more of a zealot item, but if you went max out on smite, i guess if may have use if u are going to be smiteing more. imo the best v/ts have smite as back up and focus on foh and this makes the better shield HoZ

    just my $0.02

    Look for any elite pally shield that is etheral and has auto mods of near 65 ED or 45 res-all.

    I personally think Exile is a waste of runes. A good runeword, but a waste of runes.

    Thanks guys.... yes, my V/T is more focus on smite... maxed. Thus, my FOH is kinda weak just slightly over 1k. I'm using upgraded HoZ now but I'm thinking an exile would be better for smite. I play in public pk so bm is not a problem.

    erm sorry but why get eth?
    exile doesnt have indestructable mod does it?
    i noe smiting takes durability off weapon instead but ppl will hit u..
    i think zakurum is better than vortex.. all the elite shields have average of 46 dmg..zakurum shield has 46-46...i'd rather have a good min dmg...

    Exile does NOT have indestructable mod on it, however, it DOES have the SWEET repairs 1 durability in 25 secs.

    This makes the sheild as good as indestructable.

    Edit: Dammit Sonic. u beat me 2 it :)

    For those that have tried out exile and HoZ, instead of just making a bold statement as to which is better.. pls describe why one is better than the other. It will help me understand better.

    There's 2 mods that make exile a very nice shield: one is the chance to cast lifetap and the second is the ability to get another aura, which ofcourse is cool. But its really the chance to cast lifetap which is the reason why you're using a exile. And do try to get hold of a shield with nice resi, its rather important now.

    yea resist is very very important. i think sacred rondaches are the best, and the coolest shields in the game.

    If you need the life tap then get draculs gloves. HOZ will give you the highest damage for your smite which you said was the focus of your build. + skillz is what you need for a good smiter and uped HOZ has more than exhile.

    Use marrowwalk if you need life tap. Then take gold and nk so you can repair. :clap: :clap: :clap:
