    Honor vs Holy Thunder runeword?

    Hey guys. I have the runes to create Holy Thunder and already have an Honor War Scepter. Confused on which one would be better for my Paladin which is built around damage. (11 to thorns, 16 on Fanatiscism, 6 or 7 on Zeal). Holy thunder looks hella-good but I'd need to find a scepter to fit it. I'm not so sure about it though because I've had weps with lots of magic damages and they still didn't work out too great.

    Holy Thunder
    +60% Enhanced Damage
    -25% Target Defense
    Adds 5-30 Fire Damage
    Adds 21-110 Lightning Damage
    +75 Poison Damage Over 5 Seconds
    +10 To Maximum Damage
    Lightning Resistance +60%
    +5 To Maximum Lightning Resistance
    +3 To Holy Shock (Paladin Only)
    Level 7 Chain Lightning (60 Charges)
    Honor
    +160% Enhanced Damage
    +9 to Minimum Damage
    +9 to Maximum Damage
    25% Deadly Strike
    +250 to Attack Rating
    +1 to All Skills
    7% Life Stolen per Hit
    +10 Replenish Life
    +10 to Strength
    +1 to Light Radius

    +2 to Mana per Kill

    If you're saying that those are the skills you've been putting points into, I advise you to start putting points into Sacrifice as a synergy for your Zeal (put the points into Sacrifice, but keep using Zeal). Points in Sacrifice increase the damage of your Zeal by more than the points into Zeal do (it's actually twice as much).

    Holy Thunder doesn't do magic damage, so I'm not sure what you mean. But since you don't appear interested in using Holy Shock, Honor is probably the better choice for you.

    I would only use holy thunder if you plan on using Holy Shock.

    I actually made one in a +3Holyshock scepter, to get +6 in the end!
