I'm a lvl 77 Zmiter. I have 20 points in zeal, sacrifice, and holy shield. I have one point in smite and all other prereqs.
This char is ALMOST ready for ubers (Dracs, CoH, Grief, Gores, Guillames, Highlords). I just need to get my hands on a HoZ. I didn't really think what I was going to do after I maxxed out what I needed.
For skills, you can't go wrong with defiance; consider alternative auras for fun and flexibility if you sometimes play in a party. Also, you might want to consider a Sanctuary shield if you are having trouble getting your hands on a HoZ. Your damage is already way more than you'll need and the resists from Sanctuary will let you pile on the life charms for added safety.
This Pally will be for ubers and rushing. No dueling at all.
I had a nice eth HoZ, but at the time I couldn't afford to zod it. Now I can afford it, but traded the HoZ away. I have one HR right now, and I'll be getting one more tonight, so hopefully I'll be able to pick up a decent one soon.
It seems that defiance is the way to go, but I'll talk to some other people and look for more posts.
