^ I'll probably make a shapeshifter like my light sorc has....but the issue with shapeshifters is his AI seems to have sometimers. Sometimes he will tank for you and other times he will let you tank for him...

I test it out it's showing my storm crow dmg is currently the same with either shield. Could be lying though. Actually I'm getting more dmg b/c skeleton flayers give me demon blood aura. However the summons drop like flies.

and later on any stray pebble flowing in the wind will be enough to drop them :mrgreen:
the good news is there are MANY SU/SSU/RW shields which are good for this build.

.

The boots you mention are also good if you have enough dex to not have AR problems. I personally stack a bit more vit than is necessary so AR from wind runner was more or less mandatory for me.

Also of note; When deciding whether or not an item is an upgrade, +1 all skills is at least 100 or more ele damage, per knife.

This build can do labs, when geared in a good ele spec.
