Ok, well after doing PLD for 62 levels I log onto the forum and find the DD PLD thread. I decide to give it a go... it's great in our PT setup and generally makes the job even more fun.

My question is, how long should i use wivre shield for? I can keep it on hand but at what point does another shield become better for a DD setup?

You can use it till 75. I honestly doubt there will be a noticeable difference going from 5 enmity to 3str/vit/atk/eva.

Edit: Noticeable difference in hate holding. Obviously there will be a difference in damage dealt at the expense of enmity on other actions. So really it's up to you.

Iron Ram Shield is pretty dirt cheap. I'd just pick one up and use it.

I use the HQ for kiting (would use NQ if I didn't have HQ), but I straight tank at 75 in a Koenig, since the Def value on Koenig does result in less damage taken on a block, hence less enmity loss.

I used one until 75, though I wound up swapping it for a Koenig due to the better overall defense and /DNC type stats (yay Campaign :/).

Wasn't the correlation between shield DEF and block effectiveness disproven? At the time it was proposed, no one seemed to be able to replicate the original data.
