    CTA socketing for zealot

    ok i am planning on making a CTA for my zealot (got all the runes except ohm, and i could get that with no problems)

    heres the problem. he is using herald of zak with a maxed holy shield and so needs very little dex to achieve max blocking. he is currently in the mid-high 80s lvl wise and has something like 120 or so dex with gear on. Now the ideal choice would usually be a phase blade, but since they require 136 dex its out of the question. I cant just stick a ko into my lidless (which i would use on the switch with cta) since if i die upon recovering my body i get the dreaded "i cant carry anymore, gear left on body" thing.

    i already have a CTA phase on a necro and i am thinking of making my new cta my "melee char" one.


    now i would just like peoples opinions on what would be a good low requirement choice for a cta

    i currently have my eye on a 5 socket caddy i found with no +skills. these have ridiculously low requirements so i think it might be perfect. the only qualm i have about using this is that there may be a better runeword to use it for.

    other options include any 5 socket axe, scourges etc.

    I would personally use flail/crystal sword with lidless and just put it on switch. It really isnt a good melee weapon.

    I made my cta in a knout, mostly because it was already sitting in my stash. It works just fine though.

    If you're rich enough to make cta, then you're rich enough to make BoTD.

    Besides, if you have an Ohm, then just go get a Jah and make Famine. Famine is probably as good as, if not better than BoTD anyway.

    Use an elite weapon. At least you can get some use for it even if it turns out 2/1/1

    He means that CTA has enough ed% and ias to be as good as a cruel/quickness weapon.
