The encyclopedia is extremely incomplete nowadays and the problem with players such as myself that have had long breaks of playing the game, is when you try to find stuff you remember or read about, you can't always find stuff anymore.
So two questions,
WAsn't there a shield that gave you a gauranteed single round where you'd block a hit? Seems if memory serves, there was but not sure. What and where, would that be? (Probably rare, I bet)
Two, is there an alternative unofficial, but more reliable place to find info on AQ equipment?
