Alright, so I can't post an image because I don't have 25 posts. I'll send the pic to someone who can post it so it will be up for everyone to see shortly.

I just morphed the Aliangel Shield. I'll give the details then I'll spend a little time reflecting on how I feel right now while trying not to curse excessively.

Aliangel Crescent Shield }I{
Cost: 9,440,400
Weight: 8 Rock
Rarity: (duh)
Prereq: Blocking (100)
Virtues: Tranquility and Sacrifice
Armor Class: 648
Str: 5 Int: 3 Cnc: 2 MSt: 2 Cnt: 2 Dur: 2 Reg: 2
Grants a 6% bonus to the likelihood of finding all non-boss non-trophy loot.

I'm trying really hard to understand how anybody could possibly want this thing. The amount of work that goes into morphing is extreme and costly considering the initial shield, the creation/purchase of the shield essence, and the time and/or money it takes to acquire 100 heroic essences.

The ONLY pieces of armor that people like are ones that have a benefit related to their ability to fight. When I saw the effect on this shield it was like getting punched in the gut. Here's why, in my opinion:

1) The only way this shield will benefit anybody is if they go around in PVE mode looking for loot while wearing a shield.
2) I can't imagine anybody in at least a semi-conscious state of mind would equip a shield when fighting something that they can kill without using a shield; the extra time it takes to kill results in a colossal drop in efficiency.
3) If a shield is required for killing something, odds are good that the fight will take a relatively long time.
4) Since it benefits non-boss, non-trophy loot and it only makes sense to use it when fighting something that necessitates a shield, it will only be useful when fighting in higher zones while looking for an epic.

In closing, I worked my ass off in the hopes that the bonus on the Aliangel shield would be somewhat related to shields - (i.e. damage shield or heal upon successful block). Instead, I got kicked in the teeth.

Glitchless, if I give you 20 dollars, will you turn my shield back into Strigiformes? I'm serious, I'll pay you cash money.

That is a horrid shield. Have to agree with Jackhandy. What a waste of essences and the T30 resource to make that thing, plus the gold to buy the original shield.

Glitch, I'm not sure if you monitor this thread, but in all honesty I would really appreciate if you could post the thought process behind this shield. It's really making me sick to my stomach.

^that.. but i think the idea behind it, as the only one i can come up with, is its a shield for archers. cause some do farm with shields, especially if in heroic.

I guess that makes sense, Nem. I guess I'm 95% pissed now instead of 99%. Maybe the next shield I morph will mitigate 6% of frustration.

Very, very rarely, and if we do, only against really high level mobs, and then I'd want something that was useful. This shield isn't useful.

Maybe it applies to Heroic Essences too? idk... either way, I'm sorry bro. You got a rune nobody uses attached to an expensive shield. That sux.

When I'm done with Cy, I could easily see myself pimping Zeph out with a farming suit with % chance for non boss loot. I've farmed with/without plunder and plunderfiend at 0 and 100, the differance is huge. Expensive idea tho, just my style!

the titanium opal shield is only one archer related with 5% bonus to range haste, but personaly when fighting high mobs would go for more chance to block or heal

but feel bad for you getting that shield nasty waste of time, support being able to reverse morph back to original even if that costs something to do it

still laughing at kitten
