    coh or fort for my 1pt smite zealot ?

    Hi,

    I'm using a duress archon now, but i'd like to know if coh or fort would be really better for hell and ubers.

    My stuff :
    guillaume, duress, hoz, dracul, credendum, gore, highlord, grief pb, raven, dwarf

    Thanks in advance for help !

    It seems your main attack is zeal, so I will vote fort.
    The extra two skill will not add too much damage to smite.
    But remember to stack up some crushing blow for ubers :wink3:

    I agree, CoH is used when resists cannot be allotted elsewhere; since you use HoZ I would either stick with Duress or upgrade to Fortitude.

    To clarify: when resists are taken care of CoH only offers minimal defense, +2 to skills which will only helps increase your BO if you have CtA (the damage increase is minimal in Hell and negligible vs. Ubers) and some DR, which is unnecessary in PvM.

    Fortitude smashed CoH's damage to Undead and Demons with the 300% ED, it offers resists (albeit not as much, this is why you design other gear to compensate), Life, +5 Max lightning resists (mix with the best PvM belt ever T-Gods for 90 Light res and maximum sexiness), better defense, damage to mana (godly in Uber Tristram) and Chilling Armor which is probably my favorite thing Fort has to offer, besides the stupid-awesome damage bonus of course.

    I would argue that Fortitude, if you plan your other gear well, it a better armor than CoH in Uber Tristram.

    I echo these statements, from a lot of personal experience.
