It looks like these are your options:
Orcish Shield of Major Blocking: 70 armor and 25% damage resistance.
Shield of Solitude: (?) Armor and 35% damage resistance.
Since you didn't give me the Armor for the Shield of Solitude, I can't tell which one is better.
For example, if the Shield of Solitude has 70 armor, then it'll block more damage than the Orcish Shield. But if it has, let's say, 20 armor, then the Orcish Shield would be better.
Like I said, if you give me the Armor for the Shield of Solitude I will be able to help you further.
That was a mom joke, just a second ago.
Anyway, sorry, forgot to tell you the armor rating. It has an armor rating of 64.
Ok, so we have:
Orcish: Armor 70 and 25% resistance.
Solitude: Armor 64 and 35% resistance.
After some calculations, Orcish will give you a total of 87.5 armor, and Solitude will give you a total of 86.4 armor. So Orcish will be the better choice for you (only by 1.1 Armor though).
However, keep in mind Solitude also has 30% Magic Resistance, so it could be better if you're not going solely on Armor Resistance. But, if you are going solely on Armor Resistance, then the Shield of Solitude is not the best choice.
Hope I helped.
