    hey guys, i have started on my mage assassin build and i have run into a very hard choice, what shield to use. as of now i quite like the look of the crystal ring shield but is it worth getting rid of my parry? any other bad-*** shields? nothing too common please.

    The Crystal Ring Shield used to be very good, but a patch nerfed it into oblivion. Now it's only relatively decent at best. If you are confident in your parrying skills, it's not worth it.

    As for a replacement shield that would sort of fit your theme; how about either Spider Shield or Blood Shield?

    It has ridiculously good resistances, so that's also a good option, yeah.
