    Default Cannith crafted shield for caster for Epic leveling

    I have a handful of Mithril shields and I'm going to make one of them into a Cannith Crafted shield for leveling from 20-28 before I pick up my Sharn/Ravenloft gear at 29.

    Sheltering and Parrying are taking two of the slots, so I can put an Elemental Absorption on the first slot. Any opinions on what element I should choose for the elemental absorption? I'm thinking that Fire or Electric are the most likely candidates, but didn't know if there was a strong reason to pick something specific.

    Burning Blood --> acid and fire... one of those...
    Spell resistance is worth a look

    If I had to pick an elemental resist I would go electricity, but that is generally covered by ship buffs. Personally, I would go with spell resistance or fort (if you don't have that slotted anywhere).

    Also, as a caster you will have to think about ASF. Mithril helps, but as I recall isn't 100% - could be wrong though. At level 25 the Skyvault Shield has no ASF on it and is very useful.

    I use mithral large shields in heroics. In epics, you can safely grab a regular named shield. My default go-to shield is Heroic Elite (ML17) or Epic Normal (ML22) Wall of Wood for Devotion and stacking Heal Amp.

    Before Sharn, I also occasionally used heroic Breaker of Bodies (ML8 from slavers) at 20 to keep my 5piece caster set; this is no longer necessary because Sharn caster set is good enough.
