    Shield quetion for zealot/1pt. smiter.

    i have a have functional zealot/1pt. smiter. but i'm always looking for the best way to improve him. i am currently usiing a um'd HoZ. and my question is would a phoenix elite pally shield be better? i know i lose out of some res, +2 pally, +2 off... but i gain 350-400% enhanced damage, some light and fire res. does anyone use phoenix shield? should i just put a 15/35+ jewel in my hoz and call it a day? thanks.

    I used phoenix sacred rondache (45 all res) on my paladin, back in 1.10, it was great, redemption kept my life and mana always full, you can use phoenix and keep zaka in stash for uber trist...

    Or you can just stack on the resist charms... they are not that hard to find.

    Phoenix doesn't give Fire and Light Resists, it only increases max resists. I think it's safer to use Herald in PvM and Phoenix against other Smiters.

    I use phoenix in Ubers. The only down side to it is the FS causing you to his attacks. But if your gear is good you'll have no problems no matter what shield you use honestly. You could do ubers with Sigons shield without any worries.

    phoenix for pvm and zaka for pvp, I'd say...

    phoenix keeps you live everywhere, if you just keep killin' and zaka would be better for pvp..
