Zealdin (PVP/PVM) Submitted by N_LeGeNd)**NOTE: If you are going to argue about Concentration/Holy Shock being better than Fanat, leave, because I already tested it out, and they suck. Basis:-Lol, something to remember.. Jus as you thought zeal bug was gone/fixed in 1.10 (when pally first hits enemy when using zeal, and misses, he misses all 5 hits, therefore useless zealing and getting hit for nothing), ITS NOT!!! so get lots of AR and - target def/Ignore def weapon. -Deadly strike, open wounds, critical strikes, and crushing blows really help! (Click here for more info. You might have to scroll down a bit.) -Must... have... 75% block.... along... with.. high defence -Must... have... 90%/75% all resist... in hell... -Must... follow... the strat.... written... here... Stats: Strength: Now you see? Heres the problem.. You can either put rest of your stats here after 125 dex and 200 vit.. or about 230 str and rest into vit... Your choice really! (I chose str) Dexterity: Remember that all paladins must have 75% blocking in lvl 99, and to ensure that, you must have 125 Dexterity. Vitality: Like stated above, 200 vit or rest. Its your choice Energy: Obiviously, NONE! Skills: Zeal=20 Obiviously.. The guide's name is Zealdin, do u think i was gonna let u max FoH? lmao Sacrafice=20 Now to all of you who are back from 1.09 and mental breakdown from all whites being deleted.. whole new world in 1.10.. Sacrafice increases dmg for Zeal! Fanataism=20 No surprisees here, max this, most %ed aura for pally, IAS, AR, what else would i want? Holy Shield=20 75%, and high defence, must need for Zealdin! Charge=20 Why not, use this in the beginning of the battle and pvp All resists aura=1 Jus in case when u meet another zealdin and hammerdin. Rest of the skills are optional (I wouldnt put them anywhere.) Gears: Helm -Crown of Corona (perf is good!) ** -Andy's Head (perf is good!) * -Vamp GAze (perf is good!) * Ammy -Highlord (what else? 1 all skill, 20 IAS, deadly strike, perf for zealdin)** Armor -Enigma (wow.. teleporting zealdin.. should pwn in pvp/pvm, will test it soon as i get enigma) ** -GA (90 all resist... every character's dreams..) ** -Chain of Honor (jus another awesome runeword) ** -Upged Shaft (perf) ** -Shaft * Weapon -BOTD zerker ** (whoa.. a dream item) -Death Cleaver (has all! 66% deadly strike, -33% target def, 40 IAS, WOW) ** -Demon Limb (lvl 23 enchant, use it for weapon switch) ** -Perf Azurewrath (good dmg! i have it! it's fine!) *and half -perf Heaven's light (nice options) * -Perf Razor's Edge (very goood!) * -Wrath flight (hihg dmg says all) -FleshRipper (perf for uber dia) * -Ghost Flame (i like ignore) * Shield -SS with UM rune** -HoZ ** -2 pally skill with all resist and %ED and AR -Rhymed elite pally shield (aim for highest all resist bonus from a shield.)

Strategies: -Try not to get trapped unless u got -% target Def/ignore target def, it will be hell for you get out. -Have plenty of Healing pots, u never know.. -Get 4 frame for FHR (3 is 200%, which is litterally impossible, 86% is 4th frame) -Maintain high attack speed. -Always do Holy Shield b4 u leave town. Heres how i setup skills for my Zealdin: F1: Zeal (left) F2: Vengeance (left) F3: Charge (left) F4: Holy Shield F5: Fanat aura F6: All resist Aura F8: Town portal Heres Basic Zealdin strat against PvM: 1) Holy shield! 2) Charge into the crowds! 3) Zeal Zeal Zeal! 4) Use healing pot if necessary 5) get out of the 'circle' if u get trapped, also as soon as u have opportunity to get out of that circle, LEAVE! 6) 75% blocking all the way, you'll live. 7) Hit and Run works too, if u dun have much live/defence Heres Basic Zealdin Strat against PvP: 1) Holy Shield! 2) Charge Charge! (mass charge!) 3) as Player is 'head bangning' from the charge, use ZEAL!!! 4) He/She will die, if it barb, jus start off with few charges then zeal. **Remember, Charge bug still exist, becareful! (charge bug solution, Weapon Switch) Make sure you mods Sticky this and all other strategies coming soon. Sticky it, but dont close it. However, close it when many ppl have put their opinions on it, then mods/i will edit it. Strategies coming up: Trapper, WW barb, Fire sorc, Kick sin, Hybrid Zon.
