New Zealot Patriarch...

Well, I finally finished off my second Pat/Mat of 1.10 last night. So I present to everyone Ujio the Zealot Paladin. He vanquished Baal and his minions last night with ease. I realized last night that I definitely like the melee characters much more than the casters.

This guy was a lot of fun to play with. The only frustrating things was having to deal with the FE guys, which cause quite a few deaths for me, and that damn Iron Maiden curse. Talk about dying quickly…Ouch!!! But alas, he was definitely the most fun of all the characters I have played thus far.

Nothing too great dropped for me since this guy only had about 0% MF through out the whole game. But I did manage to find a Shaftstop, Cerebus Bite, Mara’s (w/ 26% res), and a 30% MF Nageling Ring sp?. I was impressed with those… oh yeah I got a Hel rune from Hell Hellforge… what a disappointment that was. I have 5 already. Was hoping for a Um since I used 2 of the 3 I had for this char, but alas it wasn’t meant to be. I will stop rambling now and give his stats…

Congrats on the pat, and even better pat on my favorite build :)

Once you've tried them, you never want to go back to the other builds :D

Borlag- It's funny that you were the first to post to this because it was based on your feedback from a much earlier thread that help make my decision on the Zealot. I actually used your Zealot as a equipment template for Ujio. Well sort of, I will never in a million years own a BoTD 1.07 Eth Zerker Axe but am trying to get the Chains of Honor armor. Just need a 4 socket armor and oh yeah...a Ber rune :xmad:

I definitely plan on playing with him some more. Want to tweak him a little on his equipment and resists. Then just lvl the Hell out of him so I use him in MP games or just for those days where you just want to take out your frustrations on pixel bad guys... :xrollseye

Thanks for all the kind words everyone... very much appreciate. I have to stress this is a fun build.

DX - I definitely wouldn't recommend this as a HC build. I had more deaths with this one character than all my others ones combined. But that would be one Hell of a accomplishment if someone managed to reach Guardian status.

Porius - I'm not quite sure what my next one is going to be. I have a FishyMancer in Act 1 Hell now, but kinda got bored with him. I think my next build might either be a Amazon or some type of Sin. I might also try an Avenger since I just found a HoZ two nights ago with my MF Sorc...

So many builds not enough time... :xx:

Congrats with the patriarch. I too finished the game 1st time with a pally, about a month earlier, and therefore know that it is not the easiest way to do it.

congrats on the pat-ness. :) if you want another crazy-fast melee build, i'd strongly suggest a martial arts assassin, but then again, i'm a huge fan. i made a zealot/chargeadin a long time ago. maybe i'll dust him off and finish with him....

regardless, have a drink at the emb on me. :)

wow...congrats! gives me hope about finishing with my latest zealot (my 1.09 one just isn't making it anymore, so I rebuilt). Since you have a melee build, how did you deal with FE bosses, and did you just re-roll the ancients till you got a good set?

WhiskeyJack - I got lucky with the Ancients and didn't have a FE one in hell. I died quite a few times because of the FE bug through out hell and that's because I didn't notice until it was too late. Usually when I did find them I let the Merc take care of them. But once you get swinging you don't notice things quick enough. The real problem I had was dealing with the IM curse. Not that's a pain, but you can't always avoid that one.
