Tertel sends a message about an easy to acquire shield upgrade. With Season 3 out, there is a very nice, easy to get shield that will cost you nothing more than a little time. Let’s take a peek at the Season 1 [item]Gladiator’s Shield Wall[/item].
For the low, low price of only 15,000 honor points, plus 20 Eye of the Storm marks, this shield can be yours! I estimate that you should be able to net 500 – 1000 honor per hour, you’re looking at between 15 and 30 hours worth of Battleground grinding to acquire this shield. It does sound like a lot, but this is a guaranteed item, and a pretty good one at that.
The Gladiator’s Shield Wall has more Armor and more Stamina than the shield from Nightbane, [item]Shield of Impenetrable Darkness[/item] (the one in the screenshot here is enchanted with the +18 Stamina enchant).
So if you are looking for a sure fire way to acquire a shield upgrade, here is a great alternative to [item]Crest of the Sha’tar[/item] or [item]Azure-Shield of Coldarra[/item] if you have the defense to spare.
