Season 24 Ethereal weapons RNG Passive Skills

I understand the RNG behind stats on the season 24 weapons keeps things interesting. However, I don’t know why the passive “Sword and board” is a viable option on a two handed (Grandfather). The current season is super grindy and disappointing to finally get a weapon you want to use and get a passive that doesn’t engage. Yes it’s luck of the draw but “sword and board” should have been included as a passive for 2hd weapon.
