    Pally Shield worth using/trading?

    I recently found a Pally shield that is approximately as follows:

    Def: 157
    Block: 67%
    +1 Paladin skills
    +44 all res.
    +20/30% to damage and AR (I don't recall which is 20, and which 30).

    I'm thinking of socketing and throwing a Pdiamond in here to use (I assume that Larzuk will only give 1 soc to a magic item? It's not that important, as it'll just be more Pdiamonds if he can/does give more). I just figured I'd see what other people thought about it first.

    edit: If I recall correctly, it's a Gilded Shield, if that makes any difference in your judgements.

    Meh, it's alright, but I'd just assume use 'Spirit'.

    BTW, magical items get 1 or 2 sockets from Larzuk, random.

    Yeah, norm or nm cowing for awhile would net you a better shield than that.

    4 os with 30ish resis all (or higher), make a spirit and you'd have something a little better.

    However, I still consider yours to be a quality shield.

    The strength requirements get a little steap on that sort of shield also. You didn't list them so I have no idea for sure, but certainly check it before you design a build around it.

    It just seams leaps and bounds above my current shield (at least, it will be if it gets two sockets), since all I have at the moment is a basic Rondache with a few Pdiamonds. +91 all res, but awful defence and blocking.
