    Help me compare a Doom with a BotD, please.

    Alright, so, my PvP zealot (who also uses charge vs. teleporters), is using a Doom zerker, 366%ed. I can probably get a non-eth BotD Zerker for this, but I wanna know if it's relaly worth it.

    I mean, the holy freeze really helps me, and I like the fast speed, + to skills, and deadlystrike on the Doom, but would a non-eth BotD zerker with the exact same %ed do better in PvP?

    If you want to know my other equipment:
    -Um'd Gaze
    -Stone Archon
    -eth Zakarum shield Exile
    -Angelic Ammy & 1 Angelic ring and 1 Raven, or the Ammy and 2 rings, depending if I'm dueling a cold-using char.
    -Draculs
    -String
    -Gores

    Thanks in advance.

    PS: Also, which one would be better for PvM? Probably the Doom, I think.

    For PvM, botd is better because of the indestructible mod. If you use doom you will have to repair it every 5 minutes.

    repair costs dont matter, just run a char up and get some ort runes, you can cube a bunch if you do enough free barbs quests.

    You forgot ias and 30 all attributes and low reqs.

    It's not the repair costs I find annoying. It's the inconvenience of going to town every five and repair it. Btw, I didn't forget that. Doom has ias as well anyway.

    Thanks for all the replies. I didn't think the BotD would be better than my Doom, either, but for some reason, pallys with BotDs (eth or non-eth) completely own me. Any suggestions to help me improve?

    I dont think so. Items like that are about as common as a diggler.

    If they truly were they wouldn't go for a SoJ or two on Ladder...
    I would say stick with the Doom
