fairly sure that since bushido went in you need either a shield or the bushido skill which you would use instead of the shield. Though it has been sometime since I have used my mage.

you need at least 80 dex else parry is penalized and you need a shield as has been said, so it's tough to play roach nowadays unless youre a chugger, and a one hand shielder. but some people play parry ninjitsu chiv mages which are pretty interesting, or just parry ninjitsu chiv, but the damage output is hard to stack that way. basically deathstrike with wrestling and holy light spam with 4/6 cast, use mirror image, it can be nuts for being a tank, but hard to concentrate damage

Parru works only with a shield.

there are several good mage shields out there however. Arcane shield, and especially shield of invulnerability comes to mind as a cheap one with decent stats.
