Default Warbringer Shield vs Sword Of Redemption

With the Warbringer Shield's +10 to pierce ability, does it make the shield a better option to equip over the Sword Of Redemption whose base numbers are a bit better? Or would it possibly just help in Guild Battles or with certain monsters. From what I remember, wouldn't +10 to pierce increase attack stats by 1%?
Thanks!

+10 piercing applies to your eatt (att+70%def), usable in guild battles and all PvP activities, also usable on monsters with piercing ressistance, new generation of monsters. IMO better then the sword.

Does warbringer have piercing? I thought it was only the hunter stuff.

They interchange the special ability. The shield now holds the piercing ability, the cowl now holds the damage percentage.
Cowl or amulet... whichever...

Thanks!
Warbringer Shield has 54.2 effA
Sword of Redemption has 71.0 effA
Aegis of Ashes has 88.5 effA

So if your effA is bigger tha (71.0-54.2)/0.01 = 1,680 Warbringer Shield is better than Sword of Redemption (for PvP offensive).
If you effA is bigger than (88.5-54.2)/0.01 = 3,430 Warbringer Shield is even better than Aegis of Ashes.

Very unbalanced in my opinion. A shield you can get for a few days conquest duels beats the best monster alchemy shield for a lot of people.

For monster hunting use Sword of Redemption (50 raw attack) unless you need the +10 pierce.

About as many that have aegis of ashes?

Well I got a bit more eff att than that, but I also don't got the aegis, was using SoR. So looks like I changed my shield for attack :3

If you think the shield is unbalanced check out the boots.
