Patriarch Sans-Zele - BH Tesladin


Diabloii.Net Member
I was pretty anxious to get around to this guy. But, he is Pat#5 and character #6 of my 'Passion' sept. Main goal was to play through all difficulties, using zeal as "main" attack, but putting no hard points. 'King's Grace' got me all the way to Hell difficulty, where I almost forgot to switch to 'Passion'.

I wanted to build a Tesladin with FoH as ranged back-up skill. Holy Shock synergizes FoH anyway. Alas, you can't get to FoH without putting hard point in Zeal. So, went with Blessed Hammer instead. I'm glad I did. There were a lot of ranged LI monsters that would have been even more trouble. Other than those ranged LIs, didn't have too much difficulty. BH and Zeal+Holy Shock were both very viable. Merc did have some survival issuses wearing my +STR Gris. Once he had the strength for 'Fortitude' it was clear sailing.

Hotkeys record for me: (q) BH + (w) Concentrate, (e) Zeal + (r) Holy Shock, (1) BC, (2) BO, (3) HS on switch, plus (z) vigor. That was the most difficult thing about playing this build. :p

Thanks. Could maybe use some suggestions for final build: Druid (human) with a 'passion' zerker axe.

Some type of windy/summon or fire/summon?

Cool hybrid, congrats!

As for the final build, have you read this? Might give you some ideas.

Or you could make a 'Phoenix' shield and utilize the 40% Chance To Cast Level 22 Firestorm On Striking it has by maxing its synergies. Juicy other mods, too. :p
