Suggestions please

I have a lvl 65 zealot who just killed the Nightmare Baal, and I need some help with equipment before I go into hell.

This is what I'm wearing
Weapon: Baranars star 200% enhanced damage
Helm: Stealskull 208% enhanced defense
Armor: Duriels Shell 197% enhanced defense
Shield: Herald of Zakurum um'ed
Gloves: Sigons gage for the 10% life leech and +30% ias
Belt: Sigons wrap to get the bonuses with the glove
Shoes: Rare with resistances to two elements
ring 1: Manald heal
ring 2: Angelic Halo
amulet: 3% life leech

Now I'm not incredibly rich but I have all the uniques save some of the rare tc 85-87. With that in mind what would be a good choice for gloves, belt rings, amulet and shoes?

Gloves - Crafted blood gloves w/ good Crushing Blow, Resistances and if this is a MF character some w/ good MF.
Belt - SoE is probably the best belt for a Zealot
Shoes - Either Gore Riders or War Trav's both of which shouldn't be too too hard to get your hands on

The only think I see missing is a SoE like SincereX13 noted previously and you got to have a Raven Frost Ring in one of the slots.

Also keep a lookout for:
Dracul's Grasp, best zealot gloves ever.
Goreriders Boots
Vampgaze
Highlord's wrath Amulet

I've got an extra Vamp and Raven frost if you want them.

For gloves you'll want to switch to either draculs or LoH.
Armor wise, the best would be Leviathon.
Gaze is the best helm for that level zealot (depending on other pdr), Tal's is also a sgreat choice.
Um HoZ is awesome.
Gore riders are good zealot boots.
For rings idealy you'd want a Ravenfrost and a big ll ring (craft or carrion wind)
For an ammy, highlords is ideal, if you don't have that a crafted blood works well.
Other than that, remember you need an additional 40 ias for the fastest zeal with baranars. However you may wish to change that, as all the elite one handers work for a zealot.

Leviathon's probably an overkill. Shaftstop will work wonders already. Get it upgraded if you can. i believe leviathon is 174 str which is in my books kinda too much ( and since i don't like to rely on equipment to boost me 174 which might cause me to pop). Shaftstop is sweet and simple. The rest of the equipment probably got covered up pretty much.

I would love them if the offer is still up. If it's not that's okay also. My email address is [email protected]

That was what I was using when I beat hell baal. It was actually easier then I expected. I was never killed by enemies because I was overwhelmed. All my deaths were due to iron maiden or fire enchant.

I would go with highlord's, dracul's, gore riders. I was never able to get my hands on highlords and draculs so I improvised using ik because of their huge stat bonuses.

The best advice I can give is wait until level 75 or so before venturing into hell, especially as a melee character.
