You don't even mention the best pre-raid shield, Gizlock's Hypertech Buckler. Everyone loves Maraudon too.

Adding some things you didn't mention which might be worthwhile to have:

Head: Insightful Hood, Tribal War Feathers

Cloak: Archivist Cape of Healing (+33 healing iirc)

Wrists: Loomguard Armbraces

Ring: Band of Piety

Relic: Totem of Rebirth

Off-Hand: Gizlock's Hypertech Buckler

Otherwise a decent list (aside from the ZG items were they votable or not). I would pick the Observer's Shield for PvP only due to additional stamina, armor and intellect than on any other pre-raid caster shield.

Thank you for you input, with your permission could I add those to my list?

Considering the [Totem of Sustaining] is broken (as well as is, I believe, its epic counterpart) I think the Reincarnation one is better/working.

Also, avoiding the theorycrafting involved in actually debating this, I don't really believe [Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon] is as effective as people seem inclined to hope. It seems cumbersome... and praying for multiple procs is not as good a practice as actually having a static buff -especially without an ICD. In my opinion, two [Mindtap Talismans]s are better.

Feel free to debate this.

Things I've told condy to add since before he posted the list:

Ring of Desert Winds from AQ20 (36 VP) - 9 int, 1 spell crit, 9 dmg/heal and 3mp5

Bracers of Qiraji Command from AQ20 (36 VP) - 12 stam, 13 int, 4mp5 (IMO the best pre-epic bracers)
