Synergy bonus for item auras?

Is there a synergy bonus for auras given by items?
I've been toying around with a rune item dependent paladin build which might be powerful (although very expensive to build)

Armor: Bramble - Level 15-21 Thorns Aura When Equipped (varies)
Weapon (Axe): Doom - Level 12 Holy Freeze Aura When Equipped
Shield: Dragon - Level 14 Holy Fire Aura When Equipped
Helm: Dream - Level 15 Holy Shock Aura When Equipped

So with some points in the synergies, and another dedicated aura, maybe it would work. Maybe not. Just a fun idea, it seems really cool to have 5 auras on at once, (or it could be put on a merc and be made even more powerful).

Yes.

20 in Fire resist,
20 in Cold resist,
20 in Lightning resist,
20 in Salvation,
20 in Conviction or Fanaticim.

(Might be difficult to reach 4 frames zeal without fanaticism.)

Would work.

you can always use a 6 shael'd phase blade, along with some ias gloves, or even highlords amulet.... Since you probably will focus on elemental damage with this build, the physical damage shouldnt be too much of an issue.

Actually, if holy freeze was just dropped, it could be
20 Resist Fire
20 Resist Cold
10+ Salvation
20 Fanatacism
20 Sacrifice
5 Zeal

Fanatacism might be enough for attack rating with the low level zeal. With sacrifice the physical damage would be huge, and you would have 2 good level holy auras to constantly damage enemies. The thing that always bothered me about shock zealots, and cold zealots was the lack of fanat, but with the aura from an Item you could get the best of both worlds.
But wouldn't you hit the speed cap with 6 sheals anyways? Might be a waste if you get too much ias.

In 1.10 you really don't want to be hit. Let minions take the heat.

With max synergies:
Weapon (Axe): Doom - Level 12 Holy Freeze Aura When Equipped
Cold Damage: 458-485 to your attack
Aura Damage: 91-97

Shield: Dragon - Level 14 Holy Fire Aura When Equipped
Fire Damage: 365-435 to your attack
Aura Damage: 60.8-72.5

Helm: Dream - Level 15 Holy Shock Aura When Equipped
Lightning Damage: 1-2721 to your attack
Aura Damage: 1-453

Total melee: 824 - 3641
Total aura: 152.8 - 622.5

With Conviction this idea might just work. It's expensive and not that strong, so only for those looking for style.

A skill setup like that is practically begging to be an Avenger. One point in Vengeance would suffice.

it would be impossible pretty much to reach a 4fps with a doom zerker without fanaticism. well not impossible but its probably too high and too much of a sacrifice to consider. i suggest focusing on two elemental synergies instead of 3. also ditch bramble for another dragon , a coh, or a fortitude.

something like this wouldnt be bad if you wanted a ton of auras:
beast zerker
dream helm
dragon armor
either HOZ/dream/dragon/phoenix for a shield

you could use something weird like concentration for your main aura (although you'd probably want to use conviction). it would be pretty strong too... (although i wouldnt consider it a pvp build). and you can reach a 4fps rather easily with a beast zerker.

20 resist lightning
20 resist fire
20 sacrifice
20 into main aura (either conc, or convict)
4 zeal
rest into holy shield

the electric hellfire zealot.
