    Zealot question

    Hi,
    I am making a new zealot and was planning on using a bit of a different setup. Now my new setup would be like this.

    Helm: G-face (40/15 ias)
    Armour: upped Shaft (Cham)
    Shield: Perf alma negra (ber)
    Weapon: Eth death cleaver
    Belt: Verdungo 12% dr 40 vita
    Boots: upped gore
    Gloves: Magnus skin or draculs
    Amulet: Angelic
    Rings: Angelic
    Switch cta +6 bo and lidless (im non ladder)

    Now my charms mainly consist of +3/ar/life or other 3rd mods and an anni with the stats of 18/20

    Can anyone tell me if this would be worth building?

    Thanks in advance guys and girls

    Well i just want to make sure that i dont waste any stat points. Right now i use

    Helm: G-face (40/15 ias)
    Armour: upped Shaft (Cham)
    Shield: Storm Shield
    Weapon: Eth death cleaver
    Belt: Verdungo 12% dr 40 vita
    Boots: upped gore
    Gloves: Magnus skin or draculs
    Amulet: Angelic
    Rings: Angelic
    Switch cta +6 bo and lidless (im non ladder)

    as you can see it is 72% dr which I dont need so i thought if i give some dr i can gain some ar and ed from alma negra

    Actually, you're at 77% dr right now with the stormshield.

    With a ber'd alma, 12% verds and upp'd shaft on you have 50% dr.

    Is it worth it to use a ber'd Alma ???

    Another question does the ias on say a 39% ed 15 ias at to the ar?

    Unless you can think of another place to stick the ber, then I say yes. 45 DR is alright, but 42 is starting to push it. I usually try to get max dr whenever possible. However if you can stick the ber somewhere else and have access to a nice eth alma negra, by all means do it and stick a zod in it. I have one for GM duels and couldn't be happier.

    If by your second question, a 39/15ias wouldn't add to the AR, however it can help you hit your zeal breakpoints to get a 4 frame zeal. Anything beyond that is useless. There is a calculator on the forum somewhere to get the speeds but I don't know it off the top of my head.

    Generally ed/stat jewels do a better job if you don't need any more IAS. They are by far superior to say a 40/15 max

    I can put a ber in a g-face so that will give me:

    Verdungo 12%
    upped shaft 30%
    G-face 8%
    = 50% dr
