Desirability

The large shield of Ignorance is a decent shield if you can afford the intelligence hit, but its enormous SH value is likely less appealing than the rank of fire or cold resistance you can easily find on non-artefact shields. Be aware that walking around with 2 intelligence is unwise, even if you're not a spellcaster; being crippled by every passing neqoxec is not fun. Unfortunately, those who don't care about intelligence are usually the ones who have low intelligence to begin with.
