Skyrim question

Don't worry, this isn't your normal, somewhat annoying, technical problem question, just a different type of annoying. I'm too lazy to look this up or something, so I'm asking you guys. I have an exquisite Orcish Shield of Major Blocking. The armor rating is 70 and it blocks 25% more damage with the shield. The other shield is a Shield of Solitude (Doesn't show up when I improve things in the workbench). It blocks 35% more damage with the shield. It also gives 30% magic resistance, but I mostly care about physical damage. Anyway, which shield blocks more physical damage? [Edited on 05.13.2012 9:51 PM PDT]

AND Shield of Solitude: (?) Armor and 35% damage resistance. Since you didn't give me the Armor for the Shield of Solitude, I can't tell which one is better. For example, if the Shield of Solitude has 70 armor, then it'll block more damage than the Orcish Shield. But if it has, let's say, 20 armor, then the Orcish Shield would be better. Like I said, if you give me the Armor for the Shield of Solitude I will be able to help you further. [/onlyseriousreply][/quote] That was a mom joke, just a second ago. Anyway, sorry, forgot to tell you the armor rating. It has an armor rating of 64.[/quote] Ok, so we have: Orcish: Armor 70 and 25% resistance. Solitude: Armor 64 and 35% resistance. After some calculations, [b]Orcish will give you a total of 87.5 armor, and Solitude will give you a total of 86.4 armor. So Orcish will be the better choice for you (only by 1.1 Armor though).[/b] However, keep in mind Solitude also has 30% Magic Resistance, so it could be better if you're not going solely on Armor Resistance. But, if you [i]are[/i] going solely on Armor Resistance, then the Shield of Solitude is not the best choice. Hope I helped.[/quote] You definitely have.
