    Literally the only reason I chose to use Corruption for this was because of the artwork....so perhaps they could reassign the artwork to these shoulders but keep their original functionality and apply it to a new pair? OR.....they could just make a more "Hydra friendly" looking pair of shoulders. I personally think this game is missing a serious amount of viable legendary shoulders....I mean especially with what Demonmonger said about the "ignores durability shoulders" like wtf is that Blizzard?
