    Grief>Botd. Pheonix im not so sure about. Depends on whether you value higher life over dmg and whether you have a leviathan or upd shaft and a spare ber.

    Uh checked the arreat summit. Only two sheilds with decent block and pheonix capabilities are Monarch and Aegis. Aegis has 219 str req, and 49% block. So im guessin that even with ber'd levi and a 400% pheonix aegis you'd still lose out on ed that you could have had with investing str and using a Stormshield/Fortitude build. Idk tho calculate it urself.

    49% base block rate would require a RIDICULOUS amount of dex to get to max block. Stormshield is superior.
