Worth int or not?

So I have a MiEE^Veh: cleared D: L: and O:, about to go for the first L: branch. Relevant code:

  Code:
Jesas the Nimble (Minotaur Earth Elementalist)     Turns: 25747, Time: 03:24:01

Health: 126/126    AC: 13    Str: 15    XL:     15   Next: 64%
Magic:  28/28      EV: 19    Int: 25    God:    Vehumet [******]
Gold:   2739       SH:  6    Dex: 12    Spells: 8/34 levels left

rFire    + . .     SeeInvis .   s - +5 morningstar
rCold    + + .     Gourm    .   (no shield)
rNeg     . . .     Faith    .   T - +0 troll leather armour
rPois    .         Spirit   .   (helmet restricted)
rElec    .         Reflect  +   L - +0 cloak {rC+}
rCorr    .         Harm     .   v - +2 pair of gloves
MR       ++++.                  J - +2 pair of boots
Stlth    +.........             W - amulet "Tofef" {Reflect rC+ MR+++ Str+2 Int+3 SH+6}
HPRegen  0.71/turn              O - ring of protection from fire
MPRegen  0.21/turn              I - +5 ring of intelligence

@: no status effects
A: retaliatory headbutt, horns 2
a: Renounce Religion


   Skills:
 - Level 10,0 Fighting
 + Level 4,4 Maces & Flails
 - Level 8,0 Armour
 + Level 13,8 Dodging
 - Level 1,5 Stealth
 + Level 10,0 Spellcasting
 + Level 6,6 Conjurations
   Level 0,7 Transmutations
 + Level 11,7 Earth Magic
 + Level 8,5 Evocations



U - the +5 shield "Watokoev" {*Slow rC+ Int+7}
I found this thing in L:6. Even with the good aptitude, is it actually worth investing into Shields skill for the Int increase with the *Slow? Should I just go get a regular shield? ctrl-f shows no bucklers and a single ordinary shield besides this randart. What should Jesas do?

Re: Worth int or not?

Personally, I would use it. Int+7 would be too much to resist for me, plus a shield works well with your amulet of reflection. I don't consider *Slow _that_ bad.
