    Spirit in a Monarch. Max Vita route. Most popular.

    Stormshield. Max Block route. 2nd most popular

    Exile in a Troll Nest. Max Block route.

    Upgraded Visceratauant (sp?). Max Block route.

    Rhyme in whatever shield you want. Switch shield, for the 25% MF for delivering the final blow.

    It may look like there are more choices on the Max Block route, but, seriously, Spirit gotta be the most popular shield for Caster characters. Too sweet mods to ignore.

    Exile can only be made on Paladin Shields. As I said below, I prefer Viscerataunt for dual element block builds because the +1 skill helps alot. Upgrade it if you can to have base 72 CTB. But i take it by your other post you have a vita build? Stick with Lidless as you wont' have the str to equip builds. Spirit sorcs have to be planned from the start to equip it as the best option is simply dump 156 points in Str. The Rhyme on switch with Ali Baba's or Gull works nicely and is very popular.

    another shield that's often overlooked, but I like for MF: Splendor ... it has 5% less MF than Rhyme, as well as no resistances and +block - but it does have one +skill and 10% FCR.

    Depending on what you use for other MF equipment, the FCR can be nice for reaching a breakpoint, and +1 skill is always useful. If you aren't worried about blocking or your resistances (which is sometimes the case for my MF runners), then in my opinion the benefits outweigh the lower MF of Rhyme.


    Of course, there are a lot of other good options (as ProfessionalBerg mentioned) - I'm mostly focusing on the two shields with +MF.

    I use:

    - Tal's weapon and Spirit 35FCR on primary switch
    - Ali baba and Rhyme on secondary - last hit - switch, gives me 118% mf at lvl 93

    Davio, consider a Gull Dagger - it has more MF% and it looks cooler on you, too!
