Shards is a niche resist. IIRC Huan is the only monster with a max-damage shards attack. Great Wyrms of Law/Balance can also breathe it for decent damage but not the damage cap (again IIRC). Nothing else comes close.

In general, any elemental resist is optional so long as you can feasibly avoid the monsters that use that element to deal heavy damage. Indeed, you don't really need any resists for the fight with Morgoth, so long as you can avoid his summons.

The Wyrms do breathe the cap (HP over 3000), as do gelugons and Kronos.

...right, I never remember those guys because they weren't in the game when I was first learning the monster list. In my day it pretty much went from Erinyes to Marilith to Lesser Balrog to Greater Balrog and that was it! And the only unique P was Morgoth.

Thanks for the correction, Nick, you young whippersnapper. ;p

Have to take advantage on the rare occasions when the authority stumbles. And never mind, I'm about to level the playing field by changing all the monsters
