It seems that Paragons are getting shields. I wonder what attribute line they will fall under. My guess is Leadership but I dont think secondary Paragons will be limited like that so possibly Command. Any comments?

Wow VERY pretty shields! :cutie:

Unless they're under leadership, I guess we'll see a lot of jealous Wammo's go W/P instead!
Compare to warrior shields; will we have shields under both Command and Motivation requirements?

Another thing is that it seems that Paragons look more like warriors now and won't have 4 pips of regen. I hope I'm wrong though, because it will decrease the use of a lot of other secondaries, unless they have a very good energy management.

No focus but a shield means no extra energy. Will the Paragon also be adrenaline based (just as some warrior shouts are) or will the shield function as focus with +12 energy?

But VERY nice looking shield, wow, my Paragon will be very happy with that!
I may relive the old javazone times (but with paladin group buff stats)!

There is the possibility that the basic paragon shield, doesn't work exactly like a warrior shield. So it could provide energy and armour (though lower than warrior shield or spellcaster foci) as a mid-way between the two.

It'd be a nice way to differentiate between just having two classes with the same item functionality (though all caster foci work pretty much the same way).

Warrios have 2 shield atts, str and tactics, so Paragons may also have two attributes with shield req possibility.

I think that we all know that R/Par will dominate if they don't give the Paragon at least 3 Energy Regeneration...[preferably 4]. Leadership had better get some really useful skills...:undecided:

Damn, I'm loving it! I'm still crossing my fingers for a hoplite helm. Or at least something Greek-ish. Can't wait to see my paragon knocking ppl down with his shield and pokin em hoplite style.

This is pure speculation, but if the Paragon is a leader type I think it should run on morale. Obviously not one dependant on bosses but the number of enemies or teammates in your aggro bubble, where everyone's health is etc. Unfortunately that idea's been paired with the whole DP system.

Ya. Shield looks awesome. Shaka Zulu yey.


Anyone else thinks it would be cool that Paragon shield works like magic mirror? That is, it reflects xy% of spells back upon the caster? :P

Aside from Shield/Foci, anyone else wonder if the image has been flipped?

Or, maybe, just maybe, they will have a left-handed character type?

I'm Ambidextrous (deceptive) but also, perhaps players should have had this option of making a lefty or righty of their characters from the beginning?

Yes it is all in Japanese but I dont know a word in Japanese and I found the pictures alright. Just scroll to the bottom and you should find them. There is a thread somewhere that translated that site but I cant seem to find it right now.
