One item I think needs buffing is the Carapace Shield:
+7 Parry +16% Auto-block 7 Levels
Compare this to the Hunter's Shield which trades a tiny bit of parry for more auto-block for FEWER levels!
+6 Parry +18% Auto-block 5 Levels
Another comparison you can make is the Carapace Shield to the Defender's Shield where for the same number of gear levels you trade 1 parry for 14% more auto-block:
+6 Parry +30% Auto-block 7 Levels
The change that I think needs to be made to make this shield ever worthwhile is to lower its Gear Levels down to 5. Even still it might merit an additional +1 Parry to make it competitive, or more thematically, +2 Armor or perhaps +2% Deflection. (It would be the only shield with such bonuses, which would be kinda neat.)
