choice of rdm41 shields

I'm tryin to choose which shield I want to use for RDM. I am deciding between this, the light buckler, and the strike shield. I'm goin towards this one so far cuz it seems like the most useful one, but I might get the light buckler for soloing purposes? If you have shield skill increase...does that enable easier shield skill lvling? Since you will be blocking w/ shield a bit more, would that b true? As for the strike shield, i think that's the least expensive (balance is most expensive) and I think the least effective for RDM. BTW I'm one of those rdms who like to melee in partys, if you want my opinion about that issue, look up the "Fencing Degen" http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?fitem=1710

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you! ^^

I picked up this shield for my RDM a little while back and I must say that Accuracy +3 is extremely welcome by an Elvaan.
Personally, I'd like to pair this thing up with a Wise Wizard's Anelace. Better accuracy AND massive damage (well, for a one-handed sword, anyway).

This item is cheap because, like the Enhancing Earring and other BCNM40 drops, it is dropped VERY commonly. Disregard the fact that it is status RARE, that is only to annoy you when you get so many of these in a BCNM run that you have to start tossing them because nobody can posess two. Very nice stuff though ^^

this thing helps alot if your a red mage or Paladin. my Paladin friend uses this thing instead of some heater shields, it can help get aggro if your a paladin, more hits more hate.

Please rate my posts ^.^

Cost me 4k in Jeuno in Gilgamesh.

Needless to say I'm a happy camper, what with my AF1 razor blade on one hand and this shield on the other ^_^

Left me astounded as to why it was so cheap...

It drops from a Burning Circle Notorious Monster, Level 40 cap. Its the Balga's Dias Burning Circle which is in Giddeus at F-12. You have to kill Dvorovoi and his little friends.
