What is the best soul shield now? Going to have to disagree on a couple of those. Fresh 50 should be full Northern Critical. People should be going from the story shields (moonwater/jiangshi) straight to northern crits in Blade and Soul. Replacing once they get 2-3 well rolled other crit shields and they can move right into fusing.
damage on challenger is only worth it for specific boss fights with specific
classes in BNS (BD/Destro/SMN).
Otherwise it is just a straight DPS loss. The piercing is not relevant and does
not increase your DPS for the majority of content.
soul shields people should get, so to clean up the posts a little. Remember,
the BiS soul shield is the same for ALL CHARACTERS. It does not depend on what
class you are, everyone is heavily reliant on crit and accuracy.
