Hey guys! I apologize beforehand if there is another similar post, but I couldn't find it, and due to my lack of sleep I might have scrolled right past it.
However I'm wondering if shields still are a must for Paladins or is it mostly for looks nowdays? I can't really find any reasons not to use a non-shield offhand if it's a better upgrade, except the extra armor and looks.
Any kind Paladin out there who wants to tell me if I'm completely nuts or not?
