How do you mean shield has been nerfed to totally useless ? I know that Screenshot's from target dummy dont mean much but it still is 3300 AOE heals from divine strike. In real fight 2300 AOE heal is closer to truth, while healing party for 1000+ easily with AP using melee heal and AP based melee heals dont exist on DPS dok/wp anymore. I mean even Judgement/FoK now uses rf/se which is just totally upside down. These skills have always been the way for dps dok/wp to HAVE A SMALL CHANCE TO SURVIVE WHEN AGAINST KITER by spamming judgement/FoK and gaining 15 rf/se per hit so can use hot, and with luck you get enemy snared with Celerity and extra luck Run Away procs. There is a reason why FoK/Judgement used AP and did okay dmg for "throw dagger" like skill, to have a chance against kiters.
Now all that is impossible when it uses rf/se instead of ap... Can you tell me how Shield has been nerfed to useless?
EDIT; Also DPSDOK has good enough dmg for ranked, problem is that melee healing is impossible now with DW/2h specs. Which was the original point of the classess... MELEE HEAL. Books/Chalices didnt have any rf/se gains for first year of Warhammer or so. After that was introduced it didnt took long time that people realized that OH DAYMN Book/Chalice WP/DOK is now super good in BACKLINE healing which the class never supposed to be.
Shields for dok/wp should be removed because 30-40 block with insane high aoe melee heals and super nice party melee heals. Just rework new shield skills to work with DW/2h and adjust them as needed.
