Zealer Question

Hi,
Currently i am building a zealer but I don't think it is what i am looking for in the gear. He uses this right now:

Helm: Coa 80/30 ias
Shield: Eth Exile that is a sacred rondache with ed and ar
Armour: Upped Shaftstop with Cham
boots: Ik
Gloves: Ik
Belt: verdungo
amulet: Higlords
Rings: 2* raven frosts both 20 dex

Now I was thinking of changing it to:

Helm: Coa 80/30 ias
Shield: StormShield 40/15 ias
Armour: Upped Shaft (cham)
Belt: Hsaru
Boots: Hsaru
Gloves: Bloodfist
Amulet: Angelic
rings: Angelic
Weapon: Now I have an Non Eth death cleaver but should i get a eBotd?

Now im stashing 3/ar/(some with life) in my Inv with ofcourse an anni.
Which leaves me with 65% dr, plenty of ar and a decent damage

Does this setup seem good for pvp or is my old one better? I would really like some of your opions on my setups.

Thanks

You won't need Hsarus equipped all the time. With angelics and semi good charms, your AR should be around 16k. This is my zealot's gear and it works well.

Helm: Coa
Armour: Stone
Shield: Exile/StormShield (w/40%EDmg jool)
Weapon: Ebotdz
Glove: Steelrend/Draculs
Belt: Verdungo
Boot: Gorerider
Ammy: Angelic
Rings: Angelic

Also PDR is capped at 50% so 65% won't help.

I Wasn't going for 65% dr that is just how much it would turn out to be. I thought that the more ar you had the better you will perform in a pvp duell.
What should i switch the hsaru belt and boots with?

Is 16k ar about the number that i should go for?

i dont notice to big of a diff when i have 12kar with highlords/raven or 18kar with angelics so i usually go for the highlords/raven cus i like the ds

Hmmm... That is interesting. What weapon do you use? Is this against low defence chars or high defence?

Can someone please tell me if I need a lot of ar to do well in pvp?

Against high def chars like pally, barbs. Yes you would need high AR. Since most zealots duel in zeal duels, high AR is needed. There is a formula out there which calculates your chance to hit compared to your opponent's defense. Can't find it though.

For boots and gloves, I would suggest goreriders with either draculs (if life tap is not bm) or steelrends.

They consider life tap BM in the league that i am currently in so I don't think that option will go.

The thing i was wondering the most was, which of my setups sounds more stable in pvp?

If they think lifetap is cheap , why use exile then?

I thought about changing to to using storm shield. but then i would have to change my gear into this:

Helm: G-face
Armour: Upped SHaft (Cham)
Shield: Storm shield
Belt: Hsaru
boots: Hsaru
Gloves: Either magnus skin for the set or Upped bloodfist
Weapon: I just made a nice 410% ebotd ba :D so i think i will use it
Ammy: Angelic
Rings:Angelic

This setup will give me 65% dr and a bunch of Ar I will socket the SS and the G-face with any 40% ed + 2nd mod jewel i can find. Does this sound like a stable build for pvp?

The defence is a good question taking hsaru will kill my def a lot. I might reconsider using hsaru set and go for something else.

The options that seem most attractive would be:
Ik boots and gloves for the ar life and 40 stat points.
Bloodfist and Gore rider for the ds and cb and some other nice stuff :)
For gloves i can also use magnus skin so i can complete the 2 set items and recive 35 life.

Now can anyone tell me the benefits and the downsides of these 2 combo's?
