Elysian Spirit Shield doesn't work at Kraken[edit source]

Per https://twitter.com/jagexash/status/635867849970442240?lang=en

Probably should be removed from the gear table? It's worse than a buckler by far!

Elysian Spirit Shield Still works on Kraken's 4 Tentacles[edit source]

Replying to Migster's comment above, Mod Ash was referring to the Kraken's attacks, not those of the tentacles. I just ran two samples to confirm this. Two five minute tank tests, taking all 4 tentacles with ely vs without. I used an arcane spirit shield for the second run, which has the same +2 magic defense.

Tank Test 1 w/ Ely (5 minutes) - 99hp ->37

Tank Test 2 w/ Arcane (2 min 03s) - 99hp ->37

Mod Ash did not understand the question fully, or it was asked in an unclear way. The shield DOES reduce the damage of Tentacles. What is clear, also, is the Elysian spirit shield is still best in slot for Kraken boss. Any further debate on whether the Elysian spirit shield should be settled with a larger, more robust tank test, posted to YouTube. Any volunteers?

For now, I am adding the Elysian spirit shield back as best in slot.
