I need a good Pally weapon

I'm sure I have one but it's not jumping out at me right now. So I thought I'd welcome suggestions as to what I should use. In your opinion, what is the best weapon for this build?

20 Zeal
20 Conviction
20 HS
5 in each ele resists (for max resist)
5 Vengance (for OKs) Can someone clarify if this will help or not? My thinking is like Beserk for barb.
And a few 1 point useful auras

Suggestions please.... This is my first Pally. :cool:

I think you'd be better off combining Zeal with any other aura. (Fanaticism or Holy Shock for example) Conviction is pretty much only useful for vengeance.

Actually i dont have a wirts leg zealot, but i do have a diggler one, and digglers are also uber +1.
Oh, and why have you gone for conviction with zeal? Ideally with that setup you want something with heaps of elemental damage, so i suggest azurewrath, i get from dropping from pindle every other run. :uhhuh:

Hmm...Conviction with Zeal? If it is elemental damage you are looking for, Baraner's Star is nice, but as "Nightfish" said, Fanaticism, Holy Shock, and Holy Freeze would probably be better choices.

Conviction and Zeal works fine in Hell, especially with good elemental damage equipment. It's just not as popular as some cookie-cutter builds.

As before mentioned, Baranar's Star is probably your easiest to acquire choice. You could also look into a Demon Limb or a Nord's Tenderizer. Both would work pretty well. You'd probably do well to shael whichever you choose, but I'm not sure if it would actually hit another breakpoint using conviction.

Also, you could prebuff with the enchant charges on the Demon Limb and then use another weapon. IIRC that works as well. If you have a Tiamat's that would also be a good shield choice.

I'd prebuff with Demon Limb, use Nord's with Alma Negra (for AR), and Hellrack on switch for OK's. You'll need as much AR as you can get, since your aura doesn't enhance it.

But yeah, I'd rather just go Zeal/Fana with a Crescent Moon Phase Blade and HoZ.

Gimmershred is number 1 for convictor, isn't it?

And the way vengeance work - elemental damage is based on the physical damage of the weapon (without physical damage multipliers as STR, auras, off-weapon ED%) and the physical damage is applied too. So if you have weapon with small physical damage, your Vengeance will be week, with higher physical damage, your Vengeance will be stronger, but you will deal more physical damage as well and Iron Maiden will return more damage to you.

You don't need any AR when you're running around with max conviction.

Hmmm.... Gimmershred.... That sounds like fun! Gives me ranged for OK's too. Thanks Hrus. :thumbsup:

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. :clap:
