Best zealer wep apart from Ebotd?

Just found a lightsabre so would this be a fairly decent wep for a zealadin? i'll check back tomorrow gotta go offline but if anyone can give me there 2 cents then please do.

Lightsabre is average weapon. It's fast with low damage, but fanatic zealots don't have problems to reach the fastest attack with slower (and more damage dealing) weapons. Best Zealot weapon is Grief.

If you're RWM, check Oath, very nice weapon for modded players. For unmodded, I'd suggest some of the elite uniques like Death Cleaver.

Another option is Crescent Moon. With a 4 frame zeal, static field will proc like crazy

Well there is also Stormlash if you are playing unmodded and can actually find one. This will proc static too.

And Schaefer's Hammer. Both better than Crescent Moon. Or Nord's Tenderizer for Freeze.

I remember trying Death Cleaver on my first Zealot :unimpressed: Its durability was so pathetic that I ended up using Baranar's Star/Nord's Tenderizer instead.

Aside from weapons already mentioned, Heaven's Light or Redeemer (elite unique scepters) are very solid choices.

As for Lightsabre, it's best to couple it with some Crushing Blow (CB). The most common sources are boots (Goblin Toe, Gore Rider), helm (Guillaume's Face), and crafted (blood) gloves.

I usually use Grief with lash on switch for first 2 or 3 zeals for faster killing of actbosses :)

Grief, death, lash, good death cleaver, all better zealot weps than ebotd's

Oath if on budget.

Personally, I use edeath ettin, would be using lash if I ever found a good ed one, got ias/ed jewels waiting :whistling:

This is probably more for style than anything else, but

Ethereal Rare Crystal Sword Upped to Phase Blade with

Cruel
Mechanic's
Fool's
Grandmaster
Alacrity? (40% ias)

Don't know if that can spawn, but stick 2 RJoFs in there and it will be sick. The sad thing about that is even though it is probably rarer than the Lo needed for Grief by so many tens or hundreds of times, an above average rolled Grief still somehow manages to come out ahead
 
Re: Best zealer wep apart from Ebotd?

maybe I should download that ladder only runeword mod... ive got a Lo in my stash.. might come in use now lol

Re: Best zealer wep apart from Ebotd?

are you sure its a Lo and not an Io? I've made that mistake before
 
Re: Best zealer wep apart from Ebotd?
