    what helm should i use for a pure lightning zon

    hi, what helm should i use for a pure lightning zon? im off ladder btw
    im thinking of using one of the following;

    Vampire Gaze for leach and DR

    Harlequin's Crest for the extra life/mana, +2 skills and DR.

    Delirium for crowd control and +2 skills. (and the cool morph thing :uhhuh: )

    thanks
    chris

    i would go with shako cause of the huge bonuses to life and mana and skills ... i think that is the hands down winner there

    Right now im using a Griffon's Eye (19/15) with a socketed 5/5 lightning rainbow facet jewel and it rocks. In my opinion the 20 skill damage and 24 lower resists well make up for the loss of +1 on the helm.

    Jack :drink:

    Sorry, just caught the off ladder comment, go with shako then....

    thanks for the fast replys, do you have any ideas on the belt?
    ideas so far:
    Verdungo's Hearty Cord
    t-gods
    razor tail
    Nosferatu's Coil

    sory to ask these questions is just that i havnot played alot of zons in 1.10, so i dont have alot of exp with them.

    that depends on skills, if you have alotta pierce, or suffecient pierce, then i would go with tgods, if not use razor till u get ur pierce up (most likely only need a few points in it if u got +skills)

    since i dont use LF, i always go Tgods now.

    id keep both if ur a LFer
    when u have no fear of ridiculas lighitng attacks, and u want pierce for: killing razortail.

    if you just know ur going to get pounded with ridiculas lighting attacks: tgods

    The best choise: Griffon's Eye - hands down.

    That '-% light res' is simply the best mod light ama can wish.

    In hell monsters got average 30-40% light res, so here is example:
    1. equip = without eye
    2. equip = perfect eye with perfect facet (-25%/+20%)

    Basic monster with 35% light res is target and you got 1000 light dam attack.
    1. -> 650 damage
    2.-> 1080 damage
    Thats average +66% damage to regular monsters. Not bad?

    Lets take another example, 50% light res monster (most bosses f.ex.)
    1. -> 500 damage
    2. -> 900 damage
    Thats +80% more dam already!

    3rd example, 75% lres monsters (many of those too)
    1. -> 250 damage
    2. -> 600 damage
    Thats +140% damage!! And case closed :p

    Aaah sorry, my mistake - missed that :/
    (I've been lucky to find -20/13 eye [-4/+5 facet] and i just love it.)

    Off ladder those three options you mentioned are all great. Pick that what suits you needs best.
    I made delirium helm for my javas hire and it's great crowd controller for sure.

    Crown of ages would be great too [-15 req/?? jewel] if you got high str and need some resists.
    Too bad andys visage is also only ladder item :/ good choise too..

    btw, stealskull is also nice one. (mf, ias, dual leech, fhr)
    ..and that ugly tals mask works almost with any char :p

    and belt? I prefer Tgods over anything...

    EDIT:
    Forgot one great helm, perfect valkyrie wing:
    300 def,
    +2 skills
    20% r/w
    20% fhr
    +4 mana aek (awesome mod for javazon!)

    grif eye's are very expensive on ladder ( at least on EU), don't know how prices change when L becomes NL but i can't see them getting cheaper :/

    By the way, what is the Ilvl of Griffons Eye and where can that be found, that is the undisputable best helm for a lightning zon.
