    Gladiator Shield in solo

    This item seems strong for the price. I feel it wins in a trade with same lvl opponent with Breastplate.

    Is it situational, or the new standard? Is it good on all warriors?

    What's your opinion on the new 1700G item in the Round Shield tree?

    It's mostly used on gods with low or no sustain in solo, this makes them be able to match warriors with better sustain.

    Actually pretty good early item on osiris, allows him to bully much better since he can procc it alot with his low cd poke.
    Tastes like purple.

    Yes, the passive is what really drives this item. But base stats are very good for the early game as well

    Its the warrior equivalent of items like Asi and Ichaval, I agree its strong but so are those items early game as well. I can see its stats being nerfed even though, as you both have said, its the passive that makes it strong.

    Can confirm it also is a nice pick for a low sustain jungler

    Better off with bumba's + DT or something on jungler, should be more then enough sustain, no real need for glad shield on jungler unless enemy is maybe 5 physicals since the passive only proccs off of enemy gods hit.
    Tastes like purple.

    the price is fine, it's just void shield cost 1000 GOLD MORE! It has the same protections and +15 more power but no CDR. Why are you ever going to buy void shield when it cost almost an entire item more. lower void shield cost and suddenly gladiator shield isn't all that low.

    Probably because of that flat physical reduction aura. Void shield remains beneficial throughout, good for team fighting, good for 1 v 1 with physical. I agree its pricey, especially when you consider the stats of its magical equivalent, but it has benefits for your team, not just the individual. Gladiator is there primarily for solo lane, realistically theres no reason to build it anywhere else imo

    There's never going to be any reason for me ever to buy void shield at 2700 gold on any god ever.

    Don't disagree, was just postulating what their flawed reasoning might be based on. To justify its price, void shield needs a stat revision. Failing that a price reduction. Preferably both.
