I don't know if this has changed recently or if the initial info was wrong. I had 2 synths made tonight, one came out as HQ and one as NQ. The stats provided are wrong for the HQ synth (the NQ is correct)

The correct stats are:
NQ: Hickory Shield, Def:9 Str:+3 Dex:-6 Agi:-6

HQ: Picaroon's Shield, Def:10 Str:+4 Dex:-5 Agi:-5

Note, both are now level 70, not as published on this site, where the HQ is shown as level 72

This info has already been sent in as a correction, along with screenshots of the items. According to some sources, the drop rate with the NQ item is anywhere between 33% and 75%, while the HQ is 100% drop. According to wiki and a few others, the NM spawned with the HQ is a bit tougher than the NQ, and
If spawned with Hickory Shield, Gration will always perform 2 Power Attacks in a row; if spawned with Picaroon's Shield, it will always perform 3 in a row.
YMMV on that, but suffice to say there is now a visible difference between the two shields, other than the level!

Try Hickory does not guarantee drop and this one does. These shields are not meant to be used as is although there is nothing stopping you from doing so. They are used to spawn a badass NM that drops an equally badass shield worth 4-7M depending which server you are shopping around on.

Does anyone know what the deal is with the HQ version of the Hickory Shield used to spawn the NM that drops the Tatami Shield? I've read they can both be used to spawn the NM.

I heard the drop rate using the Hickory Shield is like 33%. I have the HQ version a friend made for me and am wondering if its better...like it increases drop rate to 100% or something.

The Tatami shield is worth liike 7mil at least on my server. Anyone know anything about this??
