    Well if you need the resist then go with storm but you might not have enough dex for 75% ctb. With 75% ctb and hitting the 63% fcr you should be fine running meph.

    If you have the spare stat points required to give you 156 str and the dex you need to get 75% block i would say go for stormshield if you need the resists and damage reduction. However, since you are doing meph and the mausoleum i don't think it is that important (correct me if i am wrong) and you could try mosers with 2 perf diamonds if you are struggling for resists and it has ok block.

    Stormshield is great and all, but the high str. required to equip. it really sucks. I myself use a 2 pdiamond mosers, since my 800 life isn't really threated by mephisto's physical attack(only close range) and since everyone uses the moat trick on him anyway, all you need is resists incase you get a little close.

    btw your spelling makes my eyes bleed.

    edit: you even managed to spell your nickname wrong :cheesy:

    edit: that was a bit much, even for me. Check the stickied Meteorb guide at the top of the mage for a comprehensive blocking chart complete with several options, and detailed explainations thereof.

    Best shield in IMHO is upgraded Visceratuant. 72% block, +1 all skills, 30% faster block for Sorceress 30% breakpoint, good defense ~230, Strength req 77.
    Mosers comes a close second, but only if you need the resists. Also not worth upgrading Mosers, it only gains 7% block (Visceratuant gains 12%) and the strength req jumps from 53 to 100. I made a previous post about upgrading Mosers which was based upon Arreat Summit exceptional shields page which lists incorrect blocking for all shields so I retract my previous post about upgrading Mosers.

    SS is really only good for PvP.

    my favorite shield straight up is a rhyme'd tower shield.

    dunno why no one likes it as much as me! you got a low strength requirement (75), resists (+25 all), magicfind (+25), a very decent chance to block (64%), and faster blocking!

    so i think it's best. only complain would be the low defense, but that's why you block, and sorc's can't get ridiculously high defense that easily either.

    Thats what most of us do, yes. I'd recommend it, personally.

    You might as well invest in the dex to get as close to max block as you can.

    I'm not so sure as to the upgrading, many of the threads I've read so far say it might be a waste of the runes as the increase is minnimal and mosers as it sits is usually enough if dex increased for max block.

    I use an upgraded viscer, but only because I want the +1 to skills. I use a rhymed grim shield as a second switch when mfing.

    Lol,I've been wondering the same thing,I've allways used this shield for any sorce I've built unless I was building a dueler,Then ofcourse I would go SS against melee or Zons ,Never did and still dont get why people insist on Trolles nest..........
