Yes, I have the second shield parry already with these chars, by getting the shield 1 talent earlier. So shield 2 just gives 2 more points in parry.

It really comes down to a reduction in either

(1) change to get hit (if only fighting 2 or less opponents)
(2) damage if hit.

It seems that armor boni would be better if you get swarmed alot, whereas the shield bonus is better against single or duo big baddies that if they hit you they do massive damage.

But both these chars have maxed weapon talents (which mean maxed parry talent for their level). So will 2 extra parry on a second attack help that much when compared to overall damage reduction gained by better armor?

Now I'm leaning the other way….
