    Magic res: crafting safety shields

    Hello!

    +% magic resistance is only found on crafted shield. So, are they used ANYWHERE in pvm or pvp? And if yes, have you seen examples, any screenshots? I am googling for pics now.

    The reason why I ask, is that because I am going to do massive crafting in next ladder. Maybe I can get a useful one or two off few thousands crafts. Thus, the next question is "what mods are nice for good anti-magic shield"?

    update: I've just realized it can spawn with 2 sockets. With 2 Mal runes, this is potentially %10 mdr, 14 (mals) + 2 (recipe) + 3 (of guarding) = 19 mdr.

    The chance would be 0.2447812 % (base).
    1/2 mechanic (need 2 sockets)
    1/6 recipe (need 10% res)
    1/2 recipe (need 2mdr)
    = 0,01% or ~10000 crafts to get 10% +19mdr...

    Re: Magic res: crafting safety shields

    I'm guessing, specifically for the anti magic potential: no.

    Even with all the perfect anti magic mods (resistance, absorb, damage reduction)
    you'll only eliminate (at best) around 300ish damage from high damage sources.

    I'm not sure about PvM damage outputs from monsters using magic damage,
    but the ranges in PvP are several thousands (hammer and spirit come to mind)
    so it'll only be a drop on a hotplate, and putting all your effort in trying to get that drop,
    will leave you open to all sorts of other problems with your gear.

    I'm guessing the only real value it has is the style factor.

    What about LLD, then?

    By lld there I actually meant any lower level duels, where hammers/bone spells are not so devastating. Maybe 18, 30, 49 lvls.

    But Mal would only be available for lvl 49 duels.

    You can ask LLDers if they would find something like that useful. While it would be nice to have Magic Resist, I don't think any of them would be willing to sacrifice the shields they use now (Rhyme for melee, heads for necros, I forget what else for the others) just for that one mod.

    Agreed, and I said it before, the one thing I'd actually like to have seen added in D2X is: more crafting recipes.
    (more specifically: class specific items, and perhaps more choices of items instead of the fixed small list)

    Re: Magic res: crafting safety shields

    I've ran into this pic of crafted shield. People in discussion thread were awed by stats, which I suppose has something to do with llds.

    Is it really nice, by you?

    Re: Magic res: crafting safety shields

    Block affixes, magic resistances, 2 sockets. Yeah its kind of nice, but not super valueable.

    EDIT: On the other hand, those affixes could very well be the best on a lvl 30 shield! So.. In that case, its a damn good lvl 30 duelling shield. IF! You need block and magic res.
