    I suspect a Troll Nest - it has decent block, and pretty lowish requirements. Plus it looks badass.

    I have also been thinking alot on this question :)
    I have 3 shields in mind now :)
    Hyperion: it is a medium shield but with higher block then Troll nest, and monarch.
    Monarch: it is str demanding but if you are using spirit for prebuffs then i guess you have the str already?? it is a light shield and it has higher block% then troll nest
    Troll Nest: decent block, high def and ofc the best looks, it is also a light shield.

    I think i will try out a monarch next time as i like having +2 skills as prebuff and my trollnest dream came out sucky on the resists :(

    Well it didnt answer your question maybe but it is all I can help with atm :/

    So i guess what it comes down to is how you would like to put your stat points regarding str, if you would like to go max block with minimum amount of dex and most important maybe the LOOKS ;)

    I thought about this too but Dream is not a good blocking shield, doesn't offer any +chance to block, so it's only viable to get max block on a Pally with holy shield and 60% sacred targe.

    So Hyperion's extra block isn't worth the extra strength, of course. Unless, as you stated that a Monarch was used in a prebuff. I suspect, however, that Troll nest would have more resale value so i would go for that anyway.

    hyperion if you going maxblock (with guardian angel for example) and if you use ik gloves and boots for ias (20 str ik gloves makes you wear hyperion)

    Tower shield if you go maxblock but don't use ik-set

    Trollnest or any other random low req shield if you don't go for block
