Hoplite Shield Analysis

Great Shield With Fire Damage Reduction

One of the great things about the Hoplite Shield is its high Fire Damage Reduction. Its Physical Damage Reduction is 100 as well, making it easier to shield hits when fighting powerful enemies like the Flamelurker.

High Strength Requirement

While the damage reduction is good, it has a high Str requirement at 19. For Pure Strength builds, it won't be a problem but Dexterity Warrior builds will find this quite hard to use.
