No, all of them are not suitable for this build. Crafted pala shields are more powerful as they can spawn with bigger bonus to Fire Spell Damage.

Terror griswold
Special box + oil of absolution = random set item

They only have one socket though.

If you're on SP, try Terror or Destruction Worldstone Keep with increased playersX settings. Other good places are Terror Fauztinville (better) and Destruction Tristram.

If you have spare time/desperate in finding sets, you can try getting them from Special Box (Terror Griswold). On realm people get sets very quickly, but as for myself, I never considered farming for 1 socket sets, even at 100% Special Box drop chance (50% chance now).

This might seem like a dumb question, but I am beyond annoyed. What gear is recommended for farming Terror Fauzt and finishing the black road challenge? I have all the early game gear and a crafted balefire weapon. Should that be enough? Thanks in advance.

Well since you have Balefire killspeed shouldn't be a problem. So I would switch armor to Erawan and use crafted/rare/magic paladin shield with Bear Stance. That's already 40% dr + tons of defence.

There's not much else to do besides just taking it slow. Hymn keeps you alive but due to horrible FHR of Superbeast you don't want to get too crowded.

Also using A5 or A1 merc (T6 short war bow + 100% tele when struck honorifics) will help with your survivability if you're having issues.
