Holy Freeze from items does not stack with one of your own. That would make dreamadins even more powerful (imagine ~lvl 70ish Holy Shock).

But it goes like this:
The higher lvl aura cancels the weaker one.

Are you on ladder or non-ladder? There are a lot of weapon options if you are on ladder, but otherwise a Beast would be a lot of fun. Everyone is slow, but you are superfast. It really helps your merc, and the crushing blow will make a big difference vs. bosses/super uniques. A Spirit shield is a dirt cheap shield option that would make a big difference if you are on ladder.

Points into Holy Shield. Put points into Holy Shield before Salvation.

Equipment suggestions:
Helm: Tal Helm (set piece)
Shield: Spirit in pally shield with resists
Boots: Infernostrides
Belt: String of Ears
Gloves: Dracs
Rings: Ravenfrost and Dwarf Star
Armor:??? what are you wearing?

These are the cheap options. If you want more expensive items, check out the Frost Zealot Guide.

I think doom is by far the best holyfreeze aura paladins weapon. Forget the dumb aura the weapon itself grants, but remember, it also has;

~up to -60% enemy cold res
~+2 skills
~gg physical damage to help vrs cold immunes
~deadly strike & speed to help that physical damage

I had a pvp frosty and had over 1k pulse damage {listed}, with -70 enemy res alone, over a huge radius. Everyone sees the doom axe and thinks that the cold damage is rubbish and can be ignored, then they wondered why they lost.

ammy: maras

I made a frosty focused on his pulse damage. Imo there are three kinds of frost zealots;
pvm zealots {ususally uses %crushing blow from Heaven's Light & orphans hat}
~pvp meat zealots {actually able to stand and zeal - not very good at tanking compared to others}
~pvp pulse / chargers {focused mainly on +skills, and usually maxs charge and then blessed aim after holyfreeze/synergies - easy kills on weaker people but still difficult since he cant tank}.

Since you seem to be focused on pvm, i would highly suggest maybe trading your maras for a hoz, and maybe try to invest in gore riders so you can use chains of honor isntead of duress {the +skills & resistance & life leach will really be nice}.

Light saber is a very nice pvm weapon & its very fast, but remember that if you trade it for a doom or something else, you wont have any mana leach. {not like zeal cost that much...but i'm just saying..}

edits; only reason why i posted this was because at first i thought you were setup for dueling only. I dont know if you plan on dueling or pvm, but in any situation, Heaven's Light is by far the best pvm frosty weapon!

yea hes all pvm. i was trying to set him up as a pulse/decent high dmg attacker. right now he doesnt do to bad in hell, but after playing with him for awhile i decided to make him my countess runner. so i pretty much just need him stong enough to do that kinda quickly.
