Couple of things that could be implied by this item:
that other merchants (there are plate merchants for example in the zone) will hold other badge items which avoids the issues seen in tbc by putting all the badge loot on one (two) npcs.
that there might be different badges used for 10man progression stuff and 25man progression stuff and/or different badges from different raid instances.
This item is named after Crygil, one of the US offficial Forums new community managers.
Purchasable with 35
Emblem of Heroism
from the quartermasters in the Horde and Alliance sections of Dalaran.

Make it stop smiling at me
Dodge and Defense offer almost the same level of avoidance, and only defense rating can make you uncrittable. Also, defense adds to shield block rating. This shield is ok I guess but really...the loss of defense from the Titansteel shield wall is unfortunate.
The gritty, blue armour set in Northrend (for an example, see Crusader's Square Pauldrons) goes fantastically with this shield, well enough to almost be a part of the set. On my Tauren's back, the colour palette and lines meld perfectly.
This shield is definitely not a priority for upcoming tanks, vendors have waaay better items to purchase on badges. But if you got all the gear you wanted and are not lucky with the shield, by all means by it. 33 dodge rating is better than 15 defense rating (unless you lacking defense). Plus, which is more important, you won't be one of hundreds of tanks who walk around with Royal Crest of Lordaeron and Titansteel shield wall.
I wonder why Crygil "discarded" this. >_>
I like how blizzard ACCTUALLY started making item icons look like the item equipped, like the last laugh 1haxe icon look nothing like the item equipped...
I've concluded that if you compare all the stats with all the shields of this level, (with the Titanium Shield out the way for its ridiculous costs), I think that this is the best of the three (with the Titanium, this one and Crest of Lordaeron). Simply because it's easier to get this one. Less than 35 Heroics, and you're probably gonna be doing 20/40 for the Royal Crest of Lordaeron, which isn't significantly better. I myself am going for this shield (in twelve emblem's time) and the
sword from that UP boss.
"I didn't discard it, it was stolen from me while I slept."
The shield should be called Crygil's Stolen Plate Panel
The one other thing people seem to be forgetting, is the fact that this has DODGE, no other shield has ether perry or dodge, actually this is better for that fact alone! :) makes more since now, do the comparison your self and you'll see.
i dont see how people can call this an ugly shield... it looks awsome imo
I honestly think this shield looks pretty cool too. Looks kind of barbaric....good for a warrior
as was said b4 i have the titansteel shield wall and was looking to upgrade it but this shield is too close to the titansteel shield in stats, def, etc that i will just get the rest of my gear together and if i have no luck finding a shield i may consider getting this one...
This shield has the exact same stats as the Lordearon Crest. Obviously i scrapped this shield for the crest.
is this held on the back vertically or horizontally? i see three screen shots and in two its held vertically, and one horizontally. all appear to be on a tauren.
