snipe or someone didnt price it right?
Shields really don't do enough. You can achieve higher EHP numbers with a shield, but your actual sustain is worse due to life steal.
A shield (AR, armor) will allow you to soak up more hits if you aren't hitting anything or aren't using life steal, but an offhand (crit damage, life steal, 15% ias from dual wielding) will give you higher damage and sustained survivability.
The life steal from my offhand by itself gives me 7.5k hp/sec when self-buffed, according to d3rawr (without even factoring in the increased damage from using the offhand).
Says the guy using tough as nails to gain the same armor, without block, that a shield provides when he could be using bloodthirst passive instead for more life steal.
Shield also allows you to gain 10% CC while utilizing +15% increased damage when using a sword mainhand.
DW --> +10% CC +15% IAS
Shield --> +10% CC +15% Damage

Help me to understand where you got the 15% damage from
