What i good weapon for norm and nightmare?

I've got a PvM Holy Fire-Freeze-Thunder Zealot in the making, and I was wondering which weapon would carry me from late normal until the end of nightmare. I've been looking for a fast 5 socket one handed weapon to make an Honor runeword out of with a low level requirement (like Knout or Divine Scepter) but would something as simple as a Ginther's Rift Dimensional Blade or even Hexfire be better? I don't have a hand of zakarum myself or else I probably would've used that for nightmare.

I think as long as the weapon is relatively fast you'll do fine, you could also use a Black Flail (the knockback is a little annoying, but 40% CB helps immensely), a Voice of Reason (lvl req 43, in a Flail perhaps? nice if you're focusing on Holy Freeze) or even a Crescent Moon (lvl req 47) if you find a good base non-elite sword. From the uniques I'm partial to the Coldsteel Eye, extremely fast and comes with Slow and Hit Blinds Target for some crowd control, but a number of the exceptional uniques will do the job :)

Due to how my build will work (all my offensive holy auras coming from items later on) I won't have any extra source of damage to supplement my physical damage during my leveling up stages. So basically I'll be a Zealot with only one pt in Zeal for 2/3 of the game. In normal I'm kicking behind because Sigon's set rocks normal. Just worried about nightmare.

Also, won't casting Frozen Orb on striking delay my next use of Zeal? Granted, it's not a ridiculous amount of wait time but...

Which aura will you be having then? If you're going to be working as a regular zealot with Fana I'd go with the Butcher's Pupil or Headstriker if you've got any of them, pretty decent weapons which should see you through NM without much of a trouble. I think the FO cast wouldn't delay you much anyways, perhaps if it activates in the last hit of your Zeal, since it's uninterruptible.

I'll probably be going with Fanaticism yeah. A rush is out of the question as I am playing thru this with a friend and we are doing every area.

Right now my biggest problem is finding the right socketables. Anyone got a 3 or 5 socket Knout?
