Hello,

Currently, Shield of Condemnation (Kel'Thuzad Healer Shield, itemid 22819) has the following stats;
3936 Armor
10 Stamina
10 Intellect
90 Shield Block Value
59 Healing
6 Mp5

These are in fact values from TBC. The correct values are;
3425 Armor
10 Stamina
10 Intellect
68 Shield Block Value
59 Healing
6 Mp5

The current iteration is the best survivability shield for Protection Warriors, as it offers extra Shield Block Value and armor over the Sapphiron Shield, "The Face of Death". This results in Warriors wanting the shield over classes that are intended to use it, such as paladins and shamans. Changing the shield to the correct armor value will allow the Sapphiron shield to reclaim its correct place as the best mitigation Shield.

In this item history, the values change to the TBC value (3936/90) from the vanilla values (3425/68) 2 days before TBC prepatch - easily explained by either data mining or someone running their client on the TBC PTR.
