Best shield you've never heard of: The Cracked Sash (video review)

#1deadlyfredPosted 3/5/2013 7:52:13 AM
Just a short video showing you the Cracked Sash, how and where to get it and what makes it such a good shield.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0B7CnJ68dac

All in all, a good shield to wear in nearly every situation. There are exceptions, of course.

love to hear suggestions for some other items to review as well.

thanks for watching guys.

Good videos, but I'll stick with my super sized shield

Good review. I've actually heard of this one, and I've been keeping an eye out for it where ever I go.

Happened to get one of these at lvl. 25 a while back, when I was lvl. 28. It was still useful for a while, but it's so disappointing to get rare stuff in PT1. Definitely something I hope to get at lvl50.

I don't mean to detract from the video but the only difference between the Cracked Sash and a regular purple Tediore shield is that the Cracked Sash has less variety with what in can spawn with. I'd actually say it's worse simply due to its inability to spawn with any resistances. Also here is the two side-by-side just to show you what I mean.

Hey Fred!

Maybe you could do a video about Gwen's Head variants? I love that pistol dude. I would also like to see a comparison between a shock Gwen's Head and the Little Evie!

Well this at least gives me a reason to play again. I'll try to get that.

Nice, might do that. thanks.

And to the person posting about the other purple Tediores, you're right. My friend, Dublin gave me an Instant Shield (I think it was called) that had the same cap but higher recharge rate with a 1.04 delay. All in all, that's better than the Sash as well.

I suppose then that this video is less about the Sash and more about purple Tediore low delay high recharge rate shields and how they're often overlooked for being weak.

As you see in the video, they can be used very effectively.

I'm starting to notice that. Just got this Tediore shield for my Siren a week ago. The capacity is low, but my skill boosts it, but the recharge rate is CRAZY! The low capacity is th ONLY thing wrong with those shields. Other than that, they're insane!
