    Exile > Defiance aura and holy shield

    Does the Defiance aura you get with the Exile shield synergize with Holy Shield or do only hard points boost it?

    I'm making a PVM zealot and I'm not sure whether to add to Blessed Aim or Defiance for their passive bonuses, after I have my main skills maxed ofc.

    Thanks

    Synergize only work on hard points, no +skillers.

    Exile will not synergize your holy shield.

    The basic layout for a Zealot:

    20 Sacrifice, Zeal, Holy Shield
    20 Fanaticism
    Extras into Defiance

    With a level 20 zeal you're getting +200% AR bonus. That along with gear should take care of any attack rating needs (for PvM, PvP with massive defense characters could be an issue). For just general play (occasional duels) I would say take the extra AR from it.

    If you absolutely never plan on dueling and have no problems hitting in hell (which you shouldn't) then more defense never hurt anything.

    You could always get funky and wear a dream helm putting extra points into resist lightning. Its fun if you ever rush/play nightmare and normal (everything dies before you see it)

    Just a thought.
