lvl 16 pally LLD

Well just for fun I thought I'd try out a zealot pally.

Since sacrifice does + 12 percent per level, isn't it better than might?.

Here's my skill set up
1 Sacrifice
1 Smite
5 zeal
rest in sacrifice.

Stats:
Str: enough for gear
dex: max block
vit: everything else
energy: none

gear:
clewgaws sword
Umbral Disk small shield
3 socketed chain mail with 3 flawless rubies.
3 socketed crown with 3 flawless rubies
deaths gloves
deaths sash
angelics ring and nagel ring
angelic ammy
Treads of Cthons

This dueling build isn't for serious PvP, just some wanted to try out a new build.

Don't you only need 4 points in Zeal... starts off at 2 hits, 3 at lvl 2, 4 at lvl 3, and 5 hits at lvl 4?

Get a point in Charge for mobility.

Get a 4-socketed Pally shield with 50%+ed, socket with +max jewels, Umbral just blocks too slow.

Twitch beats life armor, hands down... +20 stats, ias, FHR, and increased blocking are just amazing mods. That's the whole point of going to lvl 16, isn't it?

Cow King Boots are the pwn if you can get your hands on a pair... Normal Cows are the best place to hunt for these.

Why use a Nagel... the AR is unnecessary, and 2 Angelic would net you another 10 dex and 20 life.


The other strategy is to get 4 in Zeal, 1 in Charge, and the rest in Might. This gives you a decent dmg Zeal with a really nice dmg Charge... but then I guess you'd just be "another n00b charger" (note the quotes, not my personal opinion).

You wont hurt a fly unless you are using max armor/helm/shield and a max jewel in your sword. I really suggest gathering up some of these jewels...otherwise you are gonna have a pretty hard time.

Seems like a rather sound build. Again, there's the issue of 5 in zeal. I'd reccommend adding that extra point to Might, to at least get that 30% boost from having it at level 1. If the damage calculation works the way I think it does, I might even use calculus to solve for the highest damage with the given skill points.

OMG! Spell checker plz!

You need an aura, so at least 1 in might.
For zealing pally's, I would use 1 in charge, 4 in zeal. Rest in synergy or might.
Angelic ammy + rings
Max jewels in Helm and Armour
Bloodfist
Death's sash
CK boots or Treads of Cthon or Hsaru's
4 socket pala ed% shield with max jewels

Variations: Twitch armour; Death's gloves.
Any other variations may find your build lacking against duelers.
But if it isn't for serious PvP, then its ok, except for the nagel. Only problem is that if you went up against a pally wearing the gear described above, you will lose. PvP, imo, is all about damage, then life.

The 30 ias form deaths gloves and sash makes it an unbeatable combo as it hits the next zeal BP.

Oh, I've got my calculations finished, and I would reccommend adding 8 or 9 in sacrifice, 4 in zeal, and the rest in might. (This is assuming you have the skills from a full norm PA)

I built one of these before. They aren't the most effiecient killers with zeal.


But, since you're maxing sac anyway you can use that regularly between Zeals.


Twitch
Max mask
Max sheild
Cow boots
Angelic "bling"
Deaths belt/gloves
Clegs sword/ 6 ith mili pick (I prefer the pick)


Using this you sac/zeal very quickly and can rack up the damage.
