Thanks for the tips guys, I do like the great soul arrow since I don't have a bow. Unfortunately for some of the suggestions, I do play fashion souls. Wouldn't be caught dead in a waistcloth, and even don't really like the look of the heater shield or black sorcerer pants. I do see that this is my first build where having a better shield is useful due to the rapier poke, so here's what I'm considering:
I will miss the crystals on the weapon, but on the plus side maybe gankers will take it less seriously until I shotel 2h r1 spam them to death.
I'd like to try out the fast cast orb as well, but I'd need to go down to 3 attunement slots which means going back to wanderer and only having 1486hp (for whatever reason, I'm really bothered by having just under 1500).
