Name: Wisdom's Hold (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDB)
Type: Epic Shield
Armor: 8130, 227 Block
- +70 Stamina, +48 Intellect, which means lots of HP and Mana for you.
- Improves crit strike by 40, haste by 47, and spell power by 75. Nice set of bonuses there, too.
- And a blue socket, with a socket bonus of +5 spell power. It's a slight upgrade over Voice of Reason, the other big caster shield near endgame, but enough of an upgrade that you want this one if you can get it.
- Plus, like most of the Ulduar stuff we've been looking at lately (feel free to recommend a "husky" item for next week in the comments below), it looks pretty awesome. Those sparks fly out of the gem in the center, so be careful not to burn yourself on the incredible power contained there.
Getting Rid of It: And likely will be yours for a while -- if you noticed, the previous shield actually comes from Naxx. So who knows whether the Coliseum will offer up a respectable caster shield. If it doesn't, you might be waiting until Icecrown to replace this one. At any rate, when you do replace it, you can disenchant it into an Abyss Crystal or sell it back for 15g 4s 14c.
