The zealot is the upgraded version of the monk, the fifth-tier creature of the Castle faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be trained at the upgraded monastery.

Monks and zealots train themselves to control and project their personal energistic forces, which they deliver as ranged blasts. While monks suffer the normal penalty for ranged unit hand-to-hand attack damage (50%), the better trained zealots do not.OffBck

With a higher defense and no melee penalty, the zealot is more durable than the monk. And with twice the shots, it will remain relevant longer in combat, as well. A useful upgrade.
