May i have some help with my 78 PvM Zealot? Hello All, I am having diffuculties with me PvM Zealot in Hell Difficulty. Ill go through all my gear and such in a moment, but first i wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful guides they have posted. Both the guides, and the feedback that follows them have been very informative. A little bit about myself. I have always liked this game, but i have quit multiple times as i constantly hit this barrier. The barrier is when i get into hell difficulty. As i am sure you know, that is where this becomes a real game. The surge in difficulty is tremendous but every character i have made doesnt seem to cut it. I am in the relms and this is a ladder character. The characters name is Meleecombat if your interested in sending me a whisper. I am not into the rush scene. Since i have never actually beaten the game I would like to first beat it on hell difficulty before rushing any character through most of the game. Well ill get into this build now, truth be told i really didnt need the guides all that much, as for a Zealot, things are pretty much common sence as for as skill points go. Clevel 78 Combat Skills (most points are here) Sacrifice 12 +3 from gear on all 15 total Zeal 20 +3 Vengance 7 +3 Holy Bolt 1 +3 Smite 1 +3 Blessed Hammer 1 +3 Charge 1 +3 Holy Shield 20 +3 Offensive Auras Might 1 +3 Blessed Aim 1 +3 Concentration 1 +3 Fanaticism 20 +3 Defensive Auras No points, spending all extra after maxing sacrifice in Defiance Stat Points (gear included in the stat points) STR 184 (25 from gear included in total) DEX 165 (30 from gear included in total) VIT 227 (35 from gear included in total) HP with gear 885 Energy didnt add anything, w/e it is will be fine for zeal (bring pots for vengencing PI's. Mercenary After doing some research into something that will help my damage output i selected the Offensive Nightmare Act 2 merc. It has Might Aura and is the same level as my character (78). As for the next part, its a gear list. I Compiled all the stats i am getting below the list. I am thinking that this is where i really need the help, but there might also be something fundimentally wrong with other aspects of my build. I wanted to see if you guys could take a look see, and point me back into the right direction.
