    actually, monarchs have relatively low % blocking (38% base). the best bet would be a tower shield (54% base) or bone shield (50% base)... or the exceptional/elite equivalent. those have the best %blocking. bone shield is nice because it counts as light armor, so it doesn't slow you down as much, but it still has high blocking. my hammerdin has it in a grim shield and he loves it.

    I'd use Troll Nest, pretty low str reqs compared to monarch, so even most casters will be able to use it.

    Grim Shield. :thumbsup: only requires 58 str to equip (compared to 106 for Trolls) for good blocking and it's light weight.

    I made my three rhyme shields out of the kurast shield, luna, and monarch. All three are for my professional magic finders (avenger, lightning sorceress, and maiden of frost and fury). :)

    I prefer the Heater (elite Buckler). Lightweight, requires only 77 STR (same as the first elite armor, the Dusk Shroud) and has slightly better blocking than Bone/Grim Shield.

    Plus I think it looks funny to run around with a little saucer for a shield.


    @whomhead:
    Monarchs have very good blocking, the same as a Heater (47 % for an amazon).

    whoops, i was looking at kite shields, not monarchs... didn't realize that the % blocking changed as you went to elite. :teeth:
