    1) You should have enough points to max both. 20 Zeal, 20 Sacrifice, 20 Fanaticism, 20 Holy Shield, and then the rest in Defiance (should also be near 20).

    2) In PvM, yes. But in PvP, no.

    3) It should be fairly easy to get over 3k life with BO. I've heard some people can even get close to 3k before BO.

    1) That depends on what gear you've decided to use, specifically how much +Strength you get from your gear.

    2) Hel would be a good choice, but look for a jewel with -15% Requirements and other mods (Strength, Resists, FHR, etc.)

    3) As much as you can afford without sacrificing gear or max block. Generally, 250 or 300 is a good amount.

    Try Cyrus' guide to Zealots: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=356928 It should help a bit.

    Exile is spot on : Max Fan/Zeal/Sacrifice/Holyshield is the basic skill set up for a fanatic zealot :D I dun see T-Might as a great armor for zealots and would rate a Lionheart/Duress in archon/dusk above it but that just me hehe. If you dun need oias to hit 4fpa zeal a dracs gloves will make your zealot leech massive life in PvM with ctc lifetap but think it's BM in PvP. For my PvM zealot i just followed the basic skill set up but instead of remaining pts into defiance i dumped them into smite cos i was using Grief Pb + Hoz and load up on ds/cb. Its awfully fun smiting hell baal to death :D I do fine with 35%dr from gaze/string and for PI/IM scenarios i have a Passion Cryptic Sword (beserk) + Spirit Sacred Targe on switch hehe Dun have lots of life charms and i eek out 1.4k life w/o BO but with dmg/lifetap and anti IM tactic its been a while since i died. Cheers :D

    if u want to play pvp u have to keep in ur mind 1 thing :

    the winner is who stays on the field alone

    no matter how ur dmg can be high in 1.10 defence block and life are over dmg

    and now the other question :

    what chars do u plan to duel with ?

    i guess as a zealot u wanna duel all other melee classes

    ww barb - make sure ur def is good like 25k + (no BM items such exile)

    ur life with no BO ~2,5k (u can do it my pally has 2,7) + AR

    ww assa - higher def than vs barb due to their cast + high poison res

    druid - def block life def block life def block life due to the begining of the duel

    (dru wolves interupt a lot)

    zealots - make sure u swing in the max frame dont forget about AR u need it

    block + def

    once again def block AR than life than dmg <--- my opinion ~~

    regs

    just in case :

    as a zealot u need FHR ;)

    bm= bad manners

    2.7 life before bo, with lots of SC's of vit, and base str.
    With BO 2.7 life is alot easyer
