    Stormshield!!! Awesome block rate, high defence, huge damage reduction, and some resists...Can't really go wrong there.

    Yes, stormshield is the best shield a barb can get. One thing to note though is that shields don't have max block in and of themselves; you have to have enough dex to make them hit max block. You're going to need 222 dex by level 99 with stormshield.

    Stormshield! However, if u already have max dr from BerBer CoA, enigma, and verdungo, then go ahead and try a jeweler monarch of deflecting!!! (super rare, socket with 4x 40ed/-15req jewel!!) U lose defense though, but more dmg and less str!
