I think my shield is similar to fabby's...though his trumps mine in AR...while mine has a slight edge in block%...

though I think if anyone's looking for a shield...get stats that will help you the most...for me I lacked HP so a high Vit shield works best for me...

I think the general rule of thumb though for a good shield is 400+ primary stats with at least 20% block, AR and crit chance...

I got mine for 1 million gold only...thought it was a steal...

I saw a very good shield named baron something...I think it was baron blockade sell for 300M I believe. Wonder who the lucky buyer is. if I had 300M I would have bought that shield...good shields don't come by often...I tried selling off my litany to get gold but alas I didn't get it sold in time =(

it had stats of
19% block
1.2K armor
340 Int
120 Vit
10+% crowd control reduction
80AR
9 or 9.5% Crit chance
1 open socket

Essentially a 500+ primary stat shield with superb mitigation stats and flexibility in allowing more Vit or more Int with the socket. Only the block% was a little low. But those stats make 300M a steal IMO. Who bought it? I'll trade my litany for your shield =D

Glistering Castle

1207 Armor
11% Block Chance
173 Dexerity
199 Inteligence
30 Physical Resistance
2493 Thorns
9.5 Critical HIt Chance
10% Spirit Barage Damage

I just got this shield, it goes very wel. Took a while before a shield like this works out my build and playstyle.
Before this one i had this one:

Valiant Fortress

1130 Armor
20% Block Chance
144 Dexerity
198 Inteligence
123 Vitality
62 All Resistance
15% Life
1872 Thorns
1 Socket

I had this one for a very long time, but eventually i could miss the vit and all ress so i went for a shield with alot more dps.

It looks like that my profile didn't get any update for more then year.

Primal Dam

206 int
289 vit
67 all res
10 crit chance

1024 armor
18% chance to block
2795-4707 block amount

I actually farmed this shield out. Picked up accidentally (I usually don't pick up any shields) but, ever since then I won't miss any sacred or dread shield.

The best one I got so far, bidding on relatively cheap shields.
I like the dodge for CoB.
1346 Armor
2795-4707 Block value
20% block chance
176 Dex
153 Int
65 All resists
5% Life
339 Armor
10% Crit chance

(1111 physical resists, 1047 AR)

edit:
With JF I have:
92.6% DR
With BM (Big Stinker) for boss fights and elite damage reduction I have:
94.968% = 0.94968 = (1-.926)*(.2+.05+.07) + .926
Without BM:
93.488% = 0.93488 = (1-.926)*(.05+.07) + .926

Then with horrify double armor:
95.44%
And with BM and elite reduction:
96.8992% = 0.968992 = (1-.9544)*(.2+.05+.07) + .9544
Without BM:
95.9872% = 0.959872 = (1-.9544)*(.05+.07) + .9544

Not including 6% melee reduction.

Then the question, is ~3% damage taken too much? Will my shield reduce 20% of that to zero damage?
