    Best Armor for a Zealot?

    I was just curious what you guys think the best armor for a zealot is. I have an ethereal Guardian Angel with about 1300 defense I could zod, or I have a 4 sock armor wit over 500 defense I could stone. Should I use one of those or scrap em and get CoH? Are there any other armor's I should consider?

    CoH > everything else for melee characters

    I very seriously disagree!!

    If we are talking PvM, yeah go with CoH

    PvP, screw CoH, stone is tight, with high enough total defense, you'll see the advantage of 800-2,400 more defense on your body armor. I think alot of people will disagree with me, but I am content with knowing that they haven't thought about it the way I have, and tested it.

    :)

    I tend to agree with Halbreed, I made an archon chains for my pvp zealot to replace his stone (1975 def), tried it for a while, then switched back. The 1000 extra def on the stone made a huge difference in melee situations, especially if you arent packin an exile. And its so much cheaper to make.

    I like my coh, I just think its better used on something other than a zealot.

    I personally think lionheart is better than coh for pvm. Saves you lots of stats and have resists as well. For pvp, go with a low str high def armor like stone, eth glad bane or similar.

    don't forget Engima. 45% r/w in pvp makes sure u can catch those casters running away, even if u dun use teleport.

    very true, but if the player is sraight BM: go ahead and use the tele, not that it helps alot except vs a BP necro (gg :)).......

    but yeah the r/w is f-ing phat, that's what makes it awesome in my personal opinion, especially if you can get maxed resists w/o CoH.

    although an um rune and a few hellforges aren't that expensive, not to mention the ease of 4 socket 485+ def armors, that is a very very great suggestion, if i didn't have the resources i would definatetly go with your item suggestion. its nice to see a reply that doesn't mention stuff like templar's might, botd, death's cleaver, etc.

    thank you very much YJP.

    So you guys don't think eth GA is worth using if I can get CoH or Stone? I kinda like having my resists all maxed at 90, but I don't have too many problems without. btw, my zealot is mainly pvm, but I'll pvp wit him on rare occasions.

    I guess this depends on if it's PvP or PvM...

    i would suggest u do like me, and get a etheral steel carapace, my ladder pally uses one. you could cham it like me, or ber it or ed ias it. depending on your specific setup. you could also get an etheral temps might, i am not sure but i think that, that armor may reach 3k def. you just have to zod it :(. if you arent rich use either an plain stone or etheral one, itll last you a pretty long time. if your even poorer which i doubt then just use G.A or shaft. hope this helps
