After all this time Well, this is kind of a Patriarch thread. Iâ€™ve played a lot of zealots through the years of d2 and in the beginning of 1.10 I built a classic fana/zeal paladin based on Schaeferâ€™s Hammer. He did pretty well, I recall, but was very fragile. I therefore abandoned him and took all his gear away, a long time ago. Recently though, I decided to use him to test some gear for a build idea dwelling in the more undiscovered parts of my right front lobe. So once again, Windel-Poons walk the earth: Equipment Andarielâ€™s Visage (ias-jewel) Highlordâ€™s Wrath Schaeferâ€™s Hammer (Sheal) Durielâ€™s Shell (upgr. Ias-jewel) Herald of Zakarum (Pdimond) Laying of Hands Raven Frost Thundergodâ€™s Vigor Rare ring (dual leech, 15 dexâ€¦) Gore Rider (upgr.) Passion Ettin Axe on switch So whatâ€™s special about it then? The thing is that I discovered that this character really, wellâ€¦ owned. I must say that Iâ€™m mighty impressed because the eq isnâ€™t even optimised yet. He make p8 baalruns at a satisfying speed on donâ€™t seem to so fragile as I remembered. And 1,4k smite really work well against Baal. I must admit Iâ€™ve underestimated the Zealot.
