All paladin-only shields can have up to four sockets.

Otherwise, Monarchs, Aegises, and Wards are the only other shields that can have four sockets.

If ur not a pally like mentioned before, you are stuck w/ str. req's. A ward works too, but it's an elite item as well = high str.

But if you're a brute force one-handed weapon user, it would be a viable option, because it offers a bit more defence than a monarch and is lighter than an aegis.

If you're brute force, why are you using spirit?

This is the most likely reason they allowed Spirit to go into 4 socket swords as well. You can stick it into a crystal sword and use it much sooner if you're not a paladin.
