Wizard with Shields

I need a Wizard with a Shield on their D3 profile. I can't find anyone. Anyone rocking the shield please post here. This is for my EHP / DPS Calc, trying to fix shield formulas.

My Templar is using my shield that I used when I was terrible, back when inferno was hard. Unfortunately I don't have it on my Wiz though.

Yeah, I carry one for reflect mobs, but I don't have it on my profile so I can't check it.

I am nearly at the point where I don't even pick up legendary shields.

I'll try to find the post again but someone yesterday was asking help with it's DPS and was wearing a shield in the off-hand. (they didn't want to get rid of it for more DPS.. go figure)

Edit found it:

lol it was just a weird case that I remembered. Ask for help to raise DPS but don't want to change the 1 thing that is reducing his DPS.

softcore encourages recklessness and dps, you wont find shield using wiz here except the extreme neophyte.

only hardcore ppl use them, even there, i see less than half of wiz use shield.

You're a neophyte

i wouldnt bother with shield even in hc, cos i think 95+% of ppl die in hardcore due to lag/dc/bug..

Yes, the point of the shield is so you can tank the 10 seconds of idle during a DC needed to have your character leave the game. Already survived one of them!

i suppose u'd be safer with shield when u dc, however it doesn't improve the survivability in normal situation since it'll take much longer to kill mobs due to less dps, therefore taking more damage from em. n u'll also waste more time cos u'll be farming much slower..

grr i hate hc, wasted ~60hrs n ~100mil cos my lvl11 paragon wd(~59k dps unbuffed, ~390k ehp) died few days ago thanks to some bs bug(never got it b4) followed by dc. at least i wont waste any more time on bs hc so thats good..

its the rare shields that can actually roll much better wizard stats.

well shields CAN have some useful things for example up to 350vit, 350int, 29block, up to 80 res, looooots of armor, 16% life, 10% crit. but there are also many maaaaaaaaany bad stats and all the good and bad stats roll ranges are sooooooooooo big so the chance of finding the very good one is +- zero. for example: 1 in 11 shields can never have 29 block which can be told even before IDing

i have shield. EU. havent bothered switching and dont really know whats a good oh. maybe you here can recommend something as i have no idea what to get. i'd like a shield with 29block, 300+ vit 300+ int, and some high roll of life% and/or crit and/or ar for example. but no way i find that in the ah, the never drop to any1 just see. so do any1 know what ohs are best? :)
