Best stats for a shield as a barbarian? (for inferno)

What should I be looking for in the stats? Something reasonable, not something that is perfect and is gonna cost me 30 million.

Strength, Vitality, resist all. You won't have to pay 30 million, but you're gonna have to be willing to spend money. Btw I would get a stormshield.

Before even the stats you want a good block amount and percentage, then worry about stats.

It's a legendary shield. It usually has a pretty high block chance and always has strength and resist all as well as reduced damage from elites. You might have to search for vitality though.

If you want something reasonably priced and still effective, get a decent sacred shield with good block rate (sacred shields are the ones with 3700-4700 block amount). On top of that, you want to try to get some all resist, strength, and vitality. If you can't afford one with all that, one with just a good block rate and all resist is fine until you can afford a better one.

The godly shield that can only roll a 32% chance to block IIRC. It can have 70 all res and +100 Strength. It also provides DR vs melees and elites.

The 2 other modifiers can either pump Strength or All Res more or add things like +VIT and +Life%.

A 32% Stormshield could easily sell for 20m +; more if you get awesome properties.

Your shield means nothing when you do not post the block amount and percentage. It is like posting the stats of a weapon but not the DPS.
#10LegendoftheKOTRPosted 6/11/2012 4:01:33 PM
I forgot. It's only 16 % :( Block amount is 3706-4706.
