With the release of the castle wars updates today came a new shield and some other fancy stuff.
Well I immediately noticed that the faithful shield has no def req and is the same as a rune kite (notice the profound shields stats are roughly the same as rune kiteshields) except with the addition of a prayer bonus.
And the halos are a little better than a mith full helmet without a def requirement - and also no negative range/magic attack bonuses + slower drain rates for combat prayers.
So if you're willing to get 200 castle wars tickets (100 winning games), you can have a rune kite at 1 def (faithful shield).
And if you're willing to get another 300 you can have your very own version of a mith full helmet - the god halos.
Has the faithful shield restored faith to 1 def? What are your thoughts?
With this update 10 def now has access to a helmet better than rune full helm, the slayer helm, and a shield better than a rune kiteshield, the faithful shield.
EDIT: After 5 days of afking cw - I have the shield...
