Life tap blows

Thats right, i said it, what renders Zealots immortal is the one of the two things keeping my Zealot back.

Its overwrites Decrepify from reapers so i cannot do jack about physical immunes. Ive removed my exile and draculs for HoZ and a pair of rare gloves with leech and CB. Currently doing fine and its no biggie but just annoys me that Life Tap is praised so high.

Just started Hell and im lvl 77 with Maxed Zeal/secrifice/Fanaticism. I have lots of leftover skillpoints (im going to use them in HS once my block rate falls below 75%) and the only think im having troubles with is PI's and IM, ive got a bow for IM but the PI's just tick me off, ive tried most of the weapons for PI's but i dont like them, is there one that i have missed?

Re: Life tap blows

just take off your dracs when you're killin PI's.
Thats mighty annoying, id rather just suffer without them. So far i have not ecountered any need for Life Tap but im guessing skeletons will force me into using it sooner or later.

Re: Life tap blows

easy solution? put 1 pt in vengeance. you're still a god AND you can kill phys immune.

hard solution..swap in azurewrath. you will obliterate any undead physical immunes, depending on what you run with your pally, it might be a good option.

I just run the game, as soon as ive killed Baal in hell i make a new character.
I've got an azurewrath in my bank, ill keep it in my inventory for the PI undead.

I remember having put 1 pt in vengeance on my last smiter, and it didn't do me no good. Does it mean that +dmg from Grief does not work with vengeance?

well, undead PIs. but most PIs are undead =P

the +damage mod that comes on Grief and a few other weapons is not figured into the vengeance calculation.

i find zealing with the venom proc on my grief PB takes care of most PI's. it's a little slow, but it works.

To its defense, decrep is not the most brilliant PI solution either.

I'd just get an elemental damage weapon (Baranar's, Gimmer, Azurewrath).

Replace dracs, use life tap wand on switch (so u chose when it triggers)

Re: Life tap blows

Just use an elemental weapon on switch! It's the standard for all the zealots today. Removing Dracs would be unwise. Lifetap has saved my life countless times, and I'm not going to blow it just for some Physical Immune.

Re: Life tap blows

just had a thought, suprised no one thought of this,

dump dracs but keep exile on main then, use switch to kill pi's and liftap wont override decrep, but u still have it against the non pi monsters
