best mf shield for pala: What will get 4 socks?

I want to use a 4 sock shield with ISTs on switch.
Best should be a grey4 sock with 45 resist all ...
Thought Gris shield will get 4, but it has only 3 ...

Or can a magical shield get 4 socks too (from Larzuk)?
What would be best then? 45% res+20 block+3 combat?

What kind of build is this?
How much MF do you want to play with (a lot by the sound of things)?
How on earth did you get 4 Ists you can afford to "waste" like that?

I play two avengers :)
want to make 5*IST in my 5 sock 269ED runemaster, and 4 in a shield.
I would have > 600 mf without charms.
I would only use this build for killing baal.
Want to make a EXILE before as main shield, so I can free the raven socket and use two nagel (exile on switch No.1 and runemaster on 2. have both "Cannot Be Frozen")

Build:
Tal Armor pt, Helm pt, Belt (216 MF)
main nords319 and HoZ atm
switch runemaster, 4 sock shield (270 MF)
2*nagel (60 MF)
+1/31 mf amu atm (31 MF)
gheeds 40 (40 mf)
wt 50 (50 MF)
= 667
+ some charms
did I miss something?

EDIT: I get ISTs by selling GULs and @. The GULs from HoZ trades or else.

The best IMO:
Jeweler's <Insert your favorite pally shield here> of Deflection with 45% resist

That would be the best, but you have to find it. :p

PS: Larzuk can't give more than 2 sockets in magical items.

Where do you get your resists? I can't imagine you have all 50+ resists with that equip.

I played a month now hunting for gris set and ISTs :)
I had not so much, but by smart trading and 2 GUL drops from Hellforge I now have 6 IST's, only need 1 more to fill the shield and weapon. Great thing is, very nice resists and perfectly playable for many kinds of pala's. I can use it on my zealot and frost zealot (mostly for Travincal and baal) but also for my hammerdin for pitruns etc (have to replace belt and 1 ring with arachnid and fcr ring to get 30% fcr BP to speed things up). And I cant miss a ravenfrost, cannot be frozen is godly, if u don't wear it and u encounter some freeze dudes, the purpose of fast mf'ing is wasted, so i always wear a raven on every mf pala.
It's less mf than u have, but less dangerous to play I think ;) (and got nice +2 27mf amu)
People say to me, why do you waste those ists in griswold, for me it's not wasting, it's one of my purposes in d2, and I don't want to look like 90% of the mf chars wearing skullders and shako and isted alibaba's ... What's fun about building the stuff everyone builds hehe, that's why I don't think yyou will waste those ists, because its your own build, to be proud of ;) (but I still worry bout your resists tho ;) )

adds:
i have full resist atm with hoz pdia (69 res all)
85/85/85/75 (passive bonus from resist auras)

res build:
30 from quests
Im using a 16/20/10 anni atm
40/40/40 in tal armor
15 in tal helm
+69 shield atm
= 74/74/74/44 in hell (without charms)
I have some charms to add:
I will use a 15 gc and a 8 lc I have and some small 10/11scs

i will get a +42 res eth shield for exile this week.
if I get a 4 sock +42 too for switch,
I need added 25 res all.

So I have get some more charms or use a maras (have a 22 atm),
still > 600 mf without charms then
(Also, I have CBF on both)

Also, I can kill Baal myself with the runemaster, cause my tombreaver merc cant kill him (maybe I switch here to my eth bonehew).
I have nor DR, but with the EXILE-Shield and 20 in Holy Shield i have more than enough defense.

I agree with Loboleal. This would be the ideal Paladin shield for your needs.

Exile does NOT have Cannot be frozen.

OT:

As I see, you maxed resist auras in your avenger build, but may I ask how many points you put in vengeance ?

If its maxed then in hell you probably must have very high mana leech, cos of the mana cost on vengeance. But if there is 1 point in vengeance then the AR bonus & dmg wouldn´t be so good.

I have 5-10, somewhere. But I recommend 1 point.

Ah saw it myself no cannot be frozen, thats bad. Hm, need the raven then.

Maybe I get a +49mf amu today.
