Ratings - Royal Blue Cape
Royal Blue Cape is the most overrated low-budget shield available. The popularity of Royal Blue Cape has caused its price to spike high enough to make "low-budget" a debatable adjective for this shield. Due to a somewhat high R98 and a small quantity of this shield available on the Trading Post at any given time, this weapon is incredibly prone to fluctuations price. Over the past few months prior to this review, Royal Blue Cape has been priced anywhere from 150k to 500k, a very large range.
