    Should I make this a Spirit?

    I just found a 4os Royal Shield for Paladins with 165 defense 55% blocking and was wondering if I should make this into a SPIRIT for my Hammerdin or wait for a better shield? I currently am using a SPIRIT but its 15 defense and 45% blocking. Don't know why I made it a SPIRIT but itll be great for my low level chars since it only requires a level 25 to use x]

    Why wait? You'll easily find the runes for a new Spirit if a better shield decides to drop, anyway.

    Does it have any resistance? Cause the bonus resistance that can spawn on Paladin shields is a great asset to the Spirit runeword.

    lol didnt pay attention. all i saw what a 4os shield with better defense that just became my 2nd spirit shield x] so im all happy. plus i just found a gladiators bane wire fleece armor which owns my previous trang oul armor. x]

    now shall i look to make a spirit sword to replace my wizardspike? or will i be better off with the better resistance? also i have 70 unused stat pts. only on lvl 87 though. hehe highest lvl char ever made for me.

    That depends on how much fcr you already have and to which extent you can select between fcr gear and +skills/resists items.

    All 70 unuses stat pts. on vitality, the most important element to prevent constant dying :)
    You can always gather strenght from items.

    Make sure you at least get the 75% fcr break point, but I prefer the 125.

    The royal shield will be much better than the rondache for defense. You really should keep an eye out for a shield with 30+ resist on it. My hammerdin uses a spirit made in a +43 res protector shield. I have a +42 res Kurast Shield, but that's more strength than I'd like to use for a modest increase in defense.

    I think it is incredibly unwise to use up all of your stat points as soon as you get them when you haven't decided on your final gear yet. You should save 20 or 25 stats, but the rest can be used for dex (blocking) or vita.
