    Zealot Weapon

    Is a non-eth DC better than an ethereal botdz or a greif pb/ws?
    My paladin is doing alright, but against other zealots with exile and a high defence armor (ie.valor) I'll usually lose, but not by a considerable amount.

    My defence, atm, is 15k(lvl83) and my ar = 23k
    zeal is 6.9k
    my setup:
    Guilhaume's Face (pul'd)
    Fortitude Dusk ( might change to higher defence alternative )
    Um'd Stormshield
    Verdungos (15%)
    Gores
    Ethereal BOTDZ

    With a DC, i'd have a total of 96% DS...is it worth the damage sacrifice for the extra -def and DS? Should I get a greif, or stick with botd and work on the defence.

    I've decided to rule out greif completely, as it's BM, and everyone uses it.
    Perhaps an ethereal Death Zerker would be a good alternative to ebotdz?
    Though I'd have to change my gear for extra IAS

    If you are gonna rule out grief. I would take Eth Cleaver over Ebotdz.

    A non-eth EDC isn't better than much, but surprisingly the difference between an EDC and a regular DC is rather slight. You can put an Ohm in a regular DC and get similar results.

    max dmg on a perfect ohm'd non eth dc = 305.3
    max dmg on the worst eth dc = 351.45
    max dmg on a perfect eth dc = 404.7
    i think.

    I never said it was better, I said it was close. The worst EDC costs about 40x more than a perfect non-eth DC.

    i personally use a stormlash for the cb...i think it works wonders w/ the static field...is much cheaper compared to ebotd//grief as well.
