Default Favorite Shield Inscription?

I got a new shield recently and I'm trying to decide what inscription to put on it. I realize that ideally, I should have shields for several situations, but I have neither the money nor the inventory space to have 3-5 different shields. Instead I'm trying to decide which would be the most useful as often as possible: +10 AL vs. Piercing, +10 AL vs Slashing, or +10 AL vs Fire.

This would be primarily for PvE, but I also do lots of Alliance Battles and occasionally other sorts of PvP as well and would rather not have to switch shields much.

Any opinions? Thanks.

Probably Slashing.

Slashing or fire. Personally my warrior still uses his -2 in stance from before that was changed because I'm too lazy. I don't think it's something to worry about too heavily.

I'd probably consider one of the reduce conditions mods (blind or cripple) simply because the extra defense isn't that big a deal to a warrior.

From those three I would go for Slashing.

It would be awesome if ANet introduced a +10 vs elemental inscription.

Then they would need to add a +10 vs Physical as a counterpart...like the Shelter/Warding mods.

Personally I'd go for +10vs fire just because I think you have enough armor against physical damage.

I could definitely see them doing that, but I doubt it would be +10. To avoid making +10 vs. specific elements irrelevant I'm sure they'd make it +5 or +6 or something like that, sadly.

Thanks for the replies, everyone. I think I'll probably go with the vs. Fire inscription. Elements are pretty nasty to warriors and fire seems most common in both pve and pvp in my experience. I think I'll save the vs. Slashing one for my Paragon, since they lack the +20 Physical on their armor.

Fire is everywhere. I have a shield with 10+AL vs. fire myself because it's so common. Fire and Air ele's can do lots of damage to a warrior.

Piercing would probably be the worst since Rangers and Sins do alot of armor-ignoring damage.

All 3 are pretty good tbh. I would PROBABLY choose Piercing out of the 3 but tbh I'm not sure.

My fave is Reduced Blind. That + rune of clarity = bye bye blind bots!
