I've just completed Hell with a Zealot. I'm trying to find a reliable weapon as I search for elements to build Grief. I'm trying to kill cows and , of course, physical defenses. My current gear is this way:
Weapon Baranar's Star
Head: Darksight Helm
Body: Wyrmhide, with "Smoke" runeword
Shield Paladin shield with "Rhyme" runeword
Shoes: Gore Rider
Gloves Hands Laying
Rings Stone from Jordan Rare dual-leech Ring
The Helm: Tal-Rasha's crest
Leir: The body of Duriel's Shell
Weapon: Thresher, with "Obedience" runeword
Here's a few upgrades to help you:
Weapon: Stormlash as well as an improved headstriker
Head: Guillames Face
Gloves: hand-crafted with a slashing blow glove
In the end, change the shield you have and SOJ to a HOZ and Ravenfrost.
The crushing blow, the fatal strike or open wounds can be all great statistics to stack.
However, I wouldn't cultivate cows with a passion it's going to be slow unless you've got optimal equipment. Try Pits and WSK. These two places are the best chance you have to get things like HR's or TC87.
When you've got a Lo You're right to the point of grief Don't get carried away by doing the things I mentioned in the previous paragraph.
Edit: You may also make yourself an enchanted demon limb to increase attack damage from fire and.
