Notes

  • Q7/15AL shields are recommended because Weakness will reduce all attributes by 1. However, these shields can be expensive and difficult to obtain. A Q8/15AL or Q8/16AL is sufficient for most situations and aren't too difficult to find. If you must use a stock PvP character, drop a point in Divine Favor for Tactics.
