    yeah, i think grim is the best choice. compare with other shiled's mod, grim has "less str req(58 only)" and "not bad block rate(+20%)" also "high def (up to 150 def)".

    I'm happy with my rhyme heater (elite buckler), a tad over 100 defense, 62% blocking. I chose it because it was the highest blocking shield I could equip with my desired strength.

    What is the highest block% possible on a socketed shield?

    I use a Luna on my SC sorc and it seems to work well even though i dont have many points in dex. My problem is that i dont like running around hell difficulty looking for elite socketed items. I guess i could keep an eye out while im doing pit runs.

    I consider 106 str (troll nest) a little steep for a pvm sorc so i will say that no shield can beat a grim shield for rhyme on a pvm sorc. Extremly low strength, amazing block, lightweight and decent defense.

    Defense shouldn´t really matter for a sorc, so i would have to back up the Heater choice, 77 str req, 2nd highest blocking, lvl req 48, lightweight.


    Btw highest base block for a sorc= 44% and you can find it in Hyperions(127 str) Aegis(218) and Wards(also a lot of str), next comes the 42% blocking option in which the heater shines....

    Actually Defense matter much since 1.1 came out... do some tests with about 2k more def on a sorc you'll know what im talking about :).
