I'm sure a lot of other gladiators are looking for a shield too and being the tank class it seems pretty insane to have no method as far as I can find. I think you can craft it but thats hours of work just so I can be a proper tank. Is there no other method?

I played glad in beta 3 and the answer to your question is no. I never found another option other than having to wait to save up gil to get one. Not sure if they changed this in OB... maybe made it a guildleve reward?

1) get lucky and get it from a guildleve, check the rewards of all the low lv leves for one

2) level carpenter and make one

3) find a carpenter to make it for you

4) save up and buy one, but people like to overprice them...

5) I heard there was more equipment vendors, maybe one of them has one? I don't know though...

try find the retainer section though I doubt many people selling stuff yet. The shield is a fantastic add-on to your equipment, you can keep block up as much as you want and phalanx does a ton of dmg for little sta

Bumping real quick:
Which shield should I craft? Which can I actually equip?

There was one for sale via NPC in Beta 2. Beta 3 it was pulled. We'll see if they re-include it in Open Beta. I'm all for the player market but every tom-****-and-harry should be able to get a level 1 shield for cheap to at least TRY the gladiator class.

Oh, as to crafting shields, I'd start with carpenter. Wood is usually 'weaker' then metal, so it's got the better shot at being the low end shield.

I just found the recipe with some others for the carpenter in this thread.

Quote:
TBC: Square Maple Shield
Maple Planks x2, Sheet of Bronze Plate x1, Uncolored Sheep Leather Strap x1, Handful of Bronze Nails x1, Handful of Bronze Rivets x1


Doesn't look terrible hard to get, but I heard some ppl talking about a requirement of some levels of armorer to make the synthesis, I will work on that (I'm in ISTORY right now) I will let you know if find how to make them.
