You need to move slower then, maybe try crouching movement, you have very little margin for error in that tight space, but I've gotten that shield before. Really wish there was a ring of COLD protection like there is one for fire.
BTW, this game is SUPER STINGY when it comes to dropping that level 8 scroll, I've played through the last level 3 times in a row with the elf, killed every gargoyle, lots of level 2/3/4/5 drops, NO level 8 scroll drop. VERY annoying! And it's the last one I need, too.
