The main thing to remember about Lightning Shield is that has an ICD. Current testing has that ICD at around 3seconds. Assuming every hit is a static 2k damage with no crits, over a 15 second (average mob lifespan) fight, improved shields only adds 1500 damage, so 100 damage per second. (2,000x.15=300 damage per proc.) A three point talent investment just isn't worth it for that minimal gain, especially when there's so many other attractive talents. It's value is also diminished against mobs with cast/swing timers over 3 seconds, as then you're not guaranteeing an orb proc on cd.
