Akarat's Awakening.

Akarat's Awakening is a legendary Crusader shield that can be found in Diablo 3 and Reaper of Souls. This item can only be equipped by the Crusader, and will very rarely drop for any other class.

The Smart Drop system ensures that Crusader Shields will usually roll with Strength, or at least never roll with Dexterity or Intelligence.

This item's legendary affix has an interesting effect of reducing cooldowns. As many Crusader builds focus heavily on CDR, this is a useful item for players, though on the whole much less desired than several other shields.
