    the best weapon for a zealot is dependent on the rest of your gear. ie, do you have other gear that gives "chance to cast on striking?", etc. I'll give you my zealots setup.

    crown of ages
    metalgrid
    exile
    botd eth zerker
    steelrends
    ravenfrost, bk ring
    goreriders
    verdungos

    now for this setup, a botd eth zerkre is a good choice because exile has the "chance to cast life tap on striking," so draculs or atmas ammy is redundant. however, another nice weapon for this setup is a zod'd ethereal death cleaver.

    5 sockets waiting to be filled with whatever your char needs(customization) + the possibility to drop the ravenfrost from the usual setup of a Zealot and going with something like dual angelics for example...

    The absolute "best" would be ethereal stormlash scourge with zod. This weapon just obliterates BoTD in killing power, hell even a regular crappy stormlash at 4 fps beats BoTD in killing power. People forget that the damage of BoTD means nothing if you are only hitting 2-3 opponents at a time. Stormlash's static field reduces huge monster packs down to half HP within a few hits and the 33% crushing blow just decimates bosses or high HP monsters.

    i gotta agree with omikron8
    i have tried both on my fanatic zealer and although botd is great
    the stormlashes static on hit just decimates monsters
    i would gladly stick a zod into a eth stormlash
    but would would only make a botd in a two handed weapon
    for my ww druid cos the dmg would kill hell baal in a few hits
    stormlash>>botd
    botd>> :cheesy:

    the best weapon is the one with the best mods, meets your build, AND you can actually afford it. an eth BOTD is out of the question for me.
