    Off the top of my head, I think any monster from about Act 5 and on can potentially drop a Shael. Cows would probably be your best bet.

    If you can hang on until NM, it's probably easiest to farm the Countess for one.

    Regular cows have about double the chance of dropping 1 compared to any other normal monster in normal, although late act 5 peretty much everything can drop it. Eldtritch has equal highest drop chance of anything in normal, so if you want torun him, he's also good for EXP up to about mid 40's and the occasional normal unique.
    No, normal countess cannot drop it, but NM can, and the odds arent to bad. So if you can survive until then, it would be easier, and you can get other runes fast off her too.

    As Bob said, Nightmare Countess not Normal. I think she can only drop up to Ral in Normal. In Nightmare, however, she can go much higher - Ko I believe. Don't expect to see her puke up anything higher than Ith with any regularity though.

    Shael is not terribly difficult to cube up to, so save all those crappy low runes you find and combine them.

    If you need a reference to rune combining recipes, go here. Scroll about halfway down the page. Note that they only work for Single-Player, Open BNet, and Ladder characters.

    Good luck! :)

    Now, what build could you be using that you so desperately need a shael for normal mode?

    im gonna go on the record by saying that you will never find anything you need in any difficulty no matter how long you try. but when you no longer need that item, hundreds will drop. its proven

    this is so true. When you're richy rich you get tons of increse gold drops and so much cash it becomes a burden. unless you want to go to ATMA and bank it.
