So... I got the level 14 tower shield with 0 ASF (skyvault) on a reaper 1 Tor run last night... Now I need to decide whether to use it or sell it. :P
I'd keep it.

So my level 30 Sorcerer has Improved Shield Mastery & Twists in Legendary Shield Mastery with the Epic version of that Shield and it accounts for the first 45 points of his PRR. PRR has a diminishing return, but lets say you add another +16 for it's Blue Slot and that's all you ever obtain. Every time you get hit you reduce damage by your DR (shield grants +14), then by your PRR (which is about -37.50%).
Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

I kept it. I’d forgotten about active blocking... I’m acid spec’d so it works great to drop my dots then hunker behind the shield. So glad I kept it. :)

I got invited to the quest with the beholder drinking contest and had no idea what was going on... lol. I eventually killed them all by hiding behind the stair rail and jumping up to drop dots on them.

Delirium is one of the nice highlights about Eberron's setting. Instead of the "Far Realms" stuff being unspeakable horrors they are estranged beings of madness.

The quest was such a hit they created two more versions of it. Acute Delirium (reign of madness) has you chase things that keep trying to eat an artifact of unimaginable power, including building an airship out of beds and trying to get a massive Beholder to throw you up. Terminal Delirium (heart of madness) involves becoming your mirror twin to defend your self and a dance off against a beholder.

I'll go back and try it again solo on normal... I got invited to a reaper 1 version by a guy I didn't know, to an insane adventure that I'd never heard of... and as can be imagined the result was a clusterf*ck, lol. We did manage to make it all the way to the end boss, but after we'd gotten him down to about half health, the weird doorway bugged and we wound up blocked outside the room he was in and unable to finish...

When you fight the end boss lay a DoT over the puzzle and don't solve it. Every group ever thinks they need to solve them, but actually they distract the Beholder who focuses on solving them instead of attacking. You can actually help scramble it, but every time it's solved it splits all into animated tiles and they all have to be killed to summon the next one (hence the dot). You also have to deal with summoned trash during the fight too.

We killed all that stuff and solved the puzzle. There’s a room after that with an insanely tough beholder and those things with the stag skulls. There’s a weird doorway that gets a force field across it or something. Somehow it got bugged so we couldn’t get back in after dying.

Again?

They need to open the Mabar stuff and update it to be useful. I really like the Cloak of Night. At ML24 it comes with DR 15/Good, Dodge +18%, Ghostly (10% incorp miss), Invisibility Guard (high proc rate, 50% conceal miss), Deathblock, & Nightmare Guard (useless due to dc 22 negs). Wiki also says it can come with Mythic +3 to PRR/MRR but you probably have to farm a dozen of them, thus a thousand ingredients, to get one.

But most of the rest of the stuff is junk outside of the +5 Tome (limit one per character).
