How to fix shield

Shield has broken PVP. Without going into too much detail, here is how to fix it:

- There are two options for how it should work:
1. When shielded you are removed from the dungeon attack pool, so you will not be attacked by anyone (only attack, I have a separate point for revenge).
2. You can be attacked when shielded. If the person wins they gain prestige, but will not appear in your revenge list. If they lose you do not gain prestige. (this option will inflate prestige points, the other will not. I prefer the first option).

- When shielded, people you initiated to attack can still revenge you and cause you to lose points.

- Shield can be used for either 6 or 12 hours.

- Attacking anyone (including revenge) will break the shield.

- When the shield ends or is broken, there is a cooldown for the same amount of time it was meant to last, before a new shield can be applied.
So if you buy a shield for 6 hours and attack someone after 4 hours, you have to wait 6 hours before you can buy a new shield.

This will end all the current shield abuse, but still maintain the original purpose of it. There is one more issue, and that is if you attack someone that is not shielded and they buy a shield before you finish the fight, the attack will count as against a shielded opponent. However with the points above in place, it will be a minor problem compared to the current situation.

I think the Shields initial ideea was to maintain your ranking position while not beeing able to play...from that starting ideea it escalated into an offensive tool, a tool that can be unlimitly exploited.
It needs a serious calldown.
