    threshers + zeal

    if anybody didn't know, threshers rock with zeal. a mere 60 ias will allow you to do 7fcr (capped at 6) zeals. throw away those shields! save those points in holy shield! if you use the reaper's toll, you also get free itd! FREE ITD!

    Using a Reaper's Toll with coh and kiras to get your res up is an intresting idea. Not sure if it will work well but you get style points :D (With a 70 res kira's + coh + anya you would have around 65 all res w/o any other gears)

    EDIT: with 60ias you hit 6fpa which is what i think you meant superhal. That doesn't include fanat so it could be lower.

    Just did a quick calc: you would need 6 more ias to hit 6fpa w/ lvl 20 fanat

    reapers toll coupled with holy freeze, these minion of evil will crawl.

    however i think 2 handed weapons are capped at 5 or 6 fpa zeal.
    and ranged attackers will probaly tear u apart :D

    Zeal with 2-handers is capped at 5 frames:( So some people shouldn't have socketed their 299% Cruel Glorious axe with 2 shaels to get 4 frames...

    AFAIK only pikes can get 5 fpa zeal out of all 2 handers so, threshers are out.

    i used the .de site, and threshers are the porsches of 2h zeal baby, only 60 additional ias to hit the 2nd to last zeal bp.

    and, did i forget to mention the decrep on reaper's toll removes pi?

    ABANDON YE SHIELDS!

    One partial solution to range attackers is Gloom runeword:

    Gloom Fal + Um + Pul
    15% Chance To Cast Level 3 Dim Vision When Struck
    +10% Faster Hit Recovery
    +200-260% Enhanced Defense (varies)
    +10 To Strength
    All Resistances +45
    Half Freeze Duration
    5% Damage Taken Goes To Mana
    -3 To Light Radius

    From personal experience the CTC Dim Vision will definitely buy you some breathing room against ranged attackers. The resists will also make up for the lack of a shield.

    Another solution, if you can afford it, is teleport.
