    This sounds like a very good build. i would suggest a new amulet and 2 new rings:

    amulet:
    highlords
    or if you don't have enough resi then
    metalgrid (only on ladder)
    maras

    ring 1:
    raven, this is still a good choice even though you have CBF on glad's gives AR dex and cold absorb
    another ll ring of some sort

    ring 2:
    BK, although you can easily get better mods for a zealot on a rare ring
    rare ring

    for dexterity:

    a mistake that a lot of people have made in 1.10 is not to put enough dex on just enough to get 75% block, this is nowhere enough dex to give you enough AR.

    I would suggest gettin a zerk axe instead of the war pike, its fast high damage and allows a shield. But if you like the warpike thats fine just a suggestion

    It looks good on paper, you will have to sacrifice some stat points to wear the Coa, due to its big str req. I dont think the rest of your equip will make up the 92 extra strength youll need, but Im too lazy to look up the exact numbers on everything.
    In pvp you should be competitive with other zealots, especially with an exile. That along with your angelics should give you big defense and AR, both critical in zeal duels. As far as everybody else, make sure you have max resists, and some absorb gear on hand for special occasions.

    Honestly, zealot v zealot is all about who has the better gear, youll do fine as long as your skills are placed well, and you do have nice gear listed here. There will of course be the Doom, Exile, Fana, Cta toting monkeys who will kill you and then call you a noob because you dont have 3 auras and use no Barb skills, but theres not much you can do about it.

    Sorry about the rant, Im a bit jaded towards pvp zealots as of late, and Im not even sure this post was of any use to you. Oh well, consult the guide thread if you have any questions about skill placement. And have fun with your zealot, Im just grumpy.

    angelic amulet+2x angelic rings is > any other set up with ring/amulet due to the near 8-10k ar it gives O_O
