So after spending the past two weeks burning over 2000 perfect gems I finally got close to getting that elusive Jeweler's Monarch of Deflection. So I'm wondering if this is an acceptable shield for SP. I'm not really into max black for any of my characters and honestly one of the only reasons I was after one of these was more for bragging purposes (and finding away to put my massive stash of perfect gems to use). Anybody who has ever tried to roll one of these knows how tough it is to get a Jeweler's mod on a Monarch, so I'd be really hard pressed to keep pushing for an extra bit of block speed and block % as a non-duelling character. It appears to be 2 frames slower on the block for a sorceress, and 1 for Javazon. The % to block is non-issue as I wouldn't invest points anyway. Also, I'm leaning towards lightning facets for this shield unless somebody can convince me of a better use for it. I can think of 3 classes that could make use of lightning, as opposed to maybe 2 for ice. Opinions are appreciated!
