    Difficult to tell, but top candiates would be Breath Of The Dying & Grief. There are really lots of options, even "lowly" stuff like Heaven's Light would make an awesome zealot weapon.

    Depends on your skill/gear setup...too many variables to really figure out...also a build that was only aimed towards max damage would probably be less effective than a more balanced build....but a lot of damage:)

    Not all that much...the only thing I can think of is run away or use the Passion runeword with +1 Berserk.

    Grief phase would be the optimal (raw damagewise) for a paladin (fanazealot ofc).

    Investing in str is gonna yield in more damage. Using maxdamge/AR/life GC, LC and SC is another option to maximize your damage. U need though to have enough life to survive. This can be in a way a lesser problem when dracuuls are putting into use. Fast zeal = Triggers often life tap!

    If u dont want to use dracuuls (more damage) use steelrends but the u need to incest more points into vitality. If u are rich use CTA + Spirit on switch that yields more life! :D

    Depends on whether you are going to use a shield or not...If shield (recommended) then you need enough points for max block. This depends on what shield you're going to use buit one with decent block requires around 200 points. Of course Holy Shield can drop this number a bit with its very nice bonus to blocking.

    If you don't go for a shield, then it's probably best to leave your dexterity as low as possible (base) and try to get attack rating from charms and equipment.

    are you not even going to considered zod'ed Eth Dc as a top candidate for zeal? as far as im concerned it is the best zeal weapon on nl, and anyone who says ebotdz is better probably just cant afford a eth dc

    the damage of this grief is higher than the rest of the other ones that you have BIG TIME..... plus 20%ds and ITD...... i would rank this #1 zealot weapon that you have.....

    Weird, the grief pb should beat all the other weapons damagewise by miles.
