Best offensive properties on weapon for Shield Bash Crusader

Can someone rank those 3 properties (Increased Damage to Elites, Area Damage, Cooldown Reduction) from best to worst on weapon for Shield Bash Crusader? Personally I think cooldown reduction is best because it increases all damage directly thanks to Crimson and makes Akarat Champ uptime 100% always.

All of them are good stats for the shield. Probably cooldown first yeah , then area damage. And then third shield bash damage / critical chance. At least for me. I would have to take into account all my other pieces cause if I have adequate cooldowns on other items then I could go for a luxurious roll like elite damage.
