You need 20k + ar, 50k + defense. You're probably not hitting the last breakpoint for attacking with a ettin death, and only highlords. Also, see if you have max dr.

Ok slow down and take a deep breath.

First of all you would be better off with a different weapon. Berzerker axes are superior to Ettins for speed and range. You didn't mention if your Death was ethereal (it should always be ethereal). Try switching it for a Death zerk, or a grief or ebotd zerk or phase blade.

What is your block%? Also your attack rating sounds low - try adding some AR sc's and see if it helps you. Try using a Cta for more life.

You really don't need a gheeds in pvp. And you can switch the nigma for a fort depending on who you're fighting. If you enemy does much more damage than you with more crushing blow, you'll lose every time.

Also you didn't mention any pre-buffs. Other players might buff with B.O., enchant, fade, etc., which might be why you're getting pwned.

You never answered the cta question. You do or don't use Call to Arms (for battle orders)? That's a huge deal. Plus your vitality looks really low. Your life should be at least 3,000. I had a charger with one pt in zeal, all I had to do was throw ona greif phase and full angelics and I could dish out some pretty mean zeal attacks. Are you using any pcombats? If you can't afford them then you should be stocking up on life/ar or max/ar/lfe charms...and not just a couple. A full inventory of them. Keep in mind that with this build you're gonna be very limited on what you can successful fight...mainly other zealers...which make up a very small % of pvp pub games.

Hallo.

Three quarters of the fun when it comes to making characters is customization. Clinging to a guide will only be boring :p

steve rocks!
*rocked ;D

At the OP: what kind of characters did you have before you made this zealer? Someone could help you out with a loose dueling strategy if you asked politely.
