    Frostzeal - Testladin Cant choose

    Hi everyone,
    This is my first post here so forgive me if im doing anything wrong :tongue:
    I have searched through the pala forums but cant so far find nothing that would answer my question in a satisfactory way.
    I want to make a new paladin (softcore) and i cant decide wich is best (dmg wise and overall): frost zealot or Testladin.
    Plz help me out with ur opinion.
    If someone know some numbers for the dmg plz post them here.
    Again plz help me...ty.
    Ps. My char will be mainly PvM.
    ps2: I have read in a guide that for frost zealot u have to max zeal, while in the testladin guides zeal is only uped to 4 points... Can a freaze zealot also work with 4 points base on zeal?

    I have built them both, and I maxed zeal with both builds, I value defense and chance to hit more than damage..

    Tesladin has higher damage but frosty freezes everybody so its a bit safer, both can be very effective, question is just in equipment imo

    Holy freeze damage:
    Skill Level: 20
    Radius: 16.6 yards
    Cold Damage: 185-190 to your attack
    Cold Damage: 37-38
    Enemies slowed 54 percent

    with resist cold maxed:
    Radius: 16.6 yards
    Cold Damage: 740-760 to your attack
    Cold Damage: 148-152
    Enemies slowed 54 percent

    with resist cold and salvation maxed:
    Radius: 16.6 yards
    Cold Damage: 998-1025 to your attack
    Cold Damage: 199-205
    Enemies slowed 54 percent

    Holy Shock damage:
    Current Skill Level: 20
    Radius: 16.6 yards
    Lightning Damage: 1-936 to your attack
    Lightning Damage: 1-156

    with resist light maxed:
    Radius: 16.6 yards
    Lightning Damage: 1-3182 to your attack
    Lightning Damage: 3-530

    with resist light and salvation maxed:
    Radius: 16.6 yards
    Lightning Damage: 1-3931 to your attack
    Lightning Damage: 4-655

    I hope this helps you a bit, good luck! :rolleyes:

    :shocked:

    thx alot for ur answer.
    They both sound pretty cool to me.....damn Why can't i make up my mind.
    Itemwise: I am not rich so i wont be using expensive runewords, the expensivest item ill be using will be HoZ.
    So I guess im still thinking about it........

    holy freeze... and try and get crushing blow with your equipment.

    if u were rich u could do both:

    20 res lit
    20 hf
    20 res col

    dream helm and shield.

    I've wanted to make that build for some time now lol.

    If you are rich might as well make an Auradin with Conviction... Dual Dream + HOJ + Dragon.

    20 res lit
    20 res fire
    20 Conviction
    rest Zeal, prereqs and Holy SHield.


    as for the original topic, Tesladins have abit more power in the damage department and can kill none immunes much faster than cold (noticeable once you use Cresent Moon). Cold is safer if you cannot hope to obtain high defence stuff.

    Yeah its shocking to me too to know how poor i am :(
    My pally is now lvl 25 (ready for baalruns) and I still dont have HoZ.
    Well maybe my HF will help me out with a nice rune :)

    Guys thank you all for ur help, I have decided to make a Frosty first, see how it plays and sometime in the future ill make a tesladin.
    Thx to all of you again. :D

    Maybe you should hold off and make a simpler char like a Hammerdin or a Necro Fishy Summoner so that you can have a char that can solo the whole hell mode game with relatively cheap ghetto gears. Do some hell solo Baal mf runs and aquire some wealth so you can make something more complicated later.

    Melee Paladin builds are spendy.

    well he is already lvl 46, still no HoZ, but ready for nm balruns.
    Im going to keep on lvling him and I'll see how it goes.
    Im counting on luck from HF so i can buy some gear for my guy...if HF lets me down things are gonna become very complicated indeed.
    Cross ur fingers for me guys ;)
