I was just spending shards on PTR hoping for something new and this shield came out. If I remember correctly Phalanx shield also gets Phalanx damage.
I cleared 2 GR65 with Condemn one after another, I think the 450% damage boost is not enough to beat GR75. Even the RG's melted fast, however, even though I used Esoteric (+Trapped + Stricken) and Unity in cube I felt very squishy. It would be nice if we could get either passive similar to Swampland atunement, a bracer that gives Akkhan set toughness or add toughness to the set.
yeah dmg got nicely boosted both Akhans and shields tho note 2 things . Ya wrote felt squishy. It's kk cuz hp of mobs, elites and rg while solo are minimalized by bout 30%+ but dmg they dealin stays da same
I did da same 65 gr test run on Norvald's favour on thorns and yup healing was an issue. Dmg dealt quite decent tho.
