    If you use a Monarch, Aegis or Ward shield all will get four sockets from Larzuk. All other no Paladin class specific shields will get less.

    Monarch is the obvious choice due to having the lowest strength requirement (156).

    Thanks, and does it matter on which difficulty I use the quest reward on?

    No, but it might depend on where you found the shield. Paladin shields from act 1-4 normal or so will get only 3 sockets, as well as cracked shields which got fixed by the cube recipe.

    Of course since you're making this for a sorc make sure you don't use a Paladin only shield!

    Or you can use this formula:
    Keep in mind that it must be able to get 4 sockets in the first place, then the chance will be just 1/4.
    For your sorc the only viable option would be a Monarch.

    That chance will actually be 3/6, not 1/4. 1/4 is for dropped items, the cube always randoms six sockets, and THEN caps.
