Is there anyone else that thinks that a DPS spec that uses a shield would be interesting? I mentioned earlier in my Rogue reform thread (http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...g-up-the-rogue , a lot of really silly ideas but still) that I wanted combat rogues to be able to wear shields. After all, combat rogues are supposed to be swashbucklers. Or bandits.
So yeah, even if combat rogues don't get any shield DPS spec, do you think a shield DPS spec would work for any class? A fury warrior with 2-hand weapon in one hand and a shield in the other? An enhancement shaman walking around smashing people with 2 shields aka Viking from Final Fantasy 3. Perhaps melee hunter spec that uses 1-hand weapons and a shield with it? Who knows?
Can you even DPS with a shield today? I don't really know much about warriors, but wouldn't it be possible to DPS as a protection warrior, they have a few shield attacks that do fairly good damage. Whatcha think?
