I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks it will still be the best resist-shield in the game at those levels. Seriously, I know the Elite shields sit at the end of a very long, expensive grind, but that doesn't mean they have to be a replacement for all other types of shield resists. At most, the should be only slightly better than the other available options. As is, they are simply too powerful to be balanced in any way, shape or form.
