I buy basically all games that release each season.
Therefore I choose to play games on easy, to progress fast and play more different games with my short time.
However, and this has been plaguing Assassins Creed games since generations, the game shows no respect for my deliberate choice of "easy".
I personally see it as this, if underleveled content still manages to kill me on easy mode, it is not my lack of skill but the developers.
And it also shows a great lack of respect in my opinion.
I hope you consider this when you make infinite blocking and dodging enemies, that can't be killed.
This especially is true by vastly underleveled Zealots that still can't be killed.
Again, on easy mode it is not the customers lack of skill, but the developers lack of respect.
Because it is not respecting the choice you gave your customers.
No the opposite.
I am double the level of area, thanks to the xp buff i bought. I still die and as I already mentioned, finished all AC games since AC1.
They all been plagued by this in one way or the other... Im very frustrated with this, since I wanna progress fast to play other games.

@joachimeberhard Take it from me when I say Zealots on Easy difficulty are still NOT easy, and I finished Dark Souls, Nioh and Sekiro, games which are known for their high difficulty.
The thing is the common enemies are really rather easy, but the difficulty of those Zealots (and leg. animals in my opinion) is not really balanced. They are of levels much higher than the recommended levels of the regions they are in, and use unblockable attacks which give very little cue for players to react in time.
I suggest clearing the maps and getting your power to over 300. When your power is closer to those bosses, they will become more manageable (yes, on Easy difficulty).
P.S. I too have played all AC games since the first one.
@asgardian02 I do thats why I buy all helper stuff in store too...
Trouble is Zealots hunt me...
And this stuff happened in Origins and to a lesser degree in Odyssey too...
At any rate, easy choice should be respected...
For me it is still a basic matter of respecting my choice.
Well, this was a huge problem in Odyssey where some boss fights could become roadblocks even on easiest mode. You are not supposed to research some god build on youtube, then farm the required gear forever to progress in a game on easy. And the god builds start to shine only on second playthrough with 99 anyway.
In Valhalla this is simply not the case. Slap on the first things you find, upgrade the weapon occasionally and you are good to go. Occasionally there are some bosses in regions where they don't belong, but these are all sidequests, return later when you have leveled up and flatten them.
Try approaching Zealot from behind on horse, dismount (he will stop and listen), then fire a charged shot at his head with the hunter bow. If that is not already enough - dive of the valkyries, stomp.

I understand your frustration, but if you want to defeat them you need to learn how to do it.
If you want a fast and easy fight without depleting their stun meter focus on their health. Probably they take more health damage on easy.
A headshot deals massive health damage, so just keep your distance and shoot them while you run out of arrows. Obtain the Missile Reversal skill to throw back the spears and mines which they throw after you.
Obtain the Brush with Death skill to slow down time after a dodge. You can earn a few hit or immediately use the Rage of Helheim ability and beat the hell out of them. This ability also deals massive health damage.
Still not button a smash but if you learn how to defeat one all of the others will became a piece of cake.
