Just curious.  AFK almighty uses Kite shield I barely see any awakened Valks use Vangertz. Which shield should I upgrade past +15?

AFKalmighty does not use kite, he uses nouver which is the best offhand. We don't have it yet.

Vangertz is considered the best for damage oriented builds at this point. The accuracy is great, however it's survivability is low. If you want to be tanky, rock a Kite Shield. The primary reason is the Vangertz DP is evasion, whereas the Kite is Damage Reduction. Seeing as a ton of classes stack accuracy, the evasion largely becomes moot. DR however is always relevant.

If you do decide to go Kite, though, bear in mind you will need to compensate for accuracy elsewhere. I rock Ridells, Ancient Weapon Core + Ancient Guardian Seal, and 3 piece Taritas to make up for the lost accuracy.

Honestly vangertz is best imo until nouver even if you have bheg gloves. Ive done a lot of testing with kite and DR and on valk DR just doesnt seem to scale very well. Evasion scales much better and will notice quite a huge difference once you get muskan boots too. Nice thing about evasion is that it works while on block as well. Also its effective CC resist since everyone is going AP offhand they lack high amounts of accuracy.

Food for thought i guess.

It's possible to run a Kite/Axion shield without Bheg's Gloves with minimal accuracy problems (although you'll need a Kzarka weapon and perhaps one or two other pieces of gear with accuracy on them, as well as Serendia Special active). It really isn't necessary to take a Vangertz to +18 unless you plan on doing lots of 1v1 PvP.

However, in large scale GvG, the purpose of a Valkyrie is to either protect your backline or interrupt the other side's backline. Therefore, survivability takes priority over damage. If your guild is overgeared compared to the opposition, Axion works well by giving you a nice increase to your damage. Otherwise, Kite Shield is a more comfortable choice as it gives you a very noticeable increase in survivability.

Nouver is objectively the best after Awakenings since DP becomes increasingly obsolete outside of your armor.
