Heres the thing. Krowarz BP u get lots of def, but as paper you have a ton of hp, and for every HP stat over 100 you get 1 AC. Now many will argue that krowarz is better, but from the people that I see that are REALLY good BP they still prefer the paper build.
When you can cure and heal yourself and you have a great amount of health you are one heal away from full 10k HP again. The biggest issue is that to be a good BP you items and a lot of skill. BP is very hard. You need to play more sneaky. Watch you mana and learn how much time you have before you must full heal/cure.
I have never been that great at BP. I did play krowarz build once for a little, but I did find the low HP sucked. I seen paper build BP with almost same def (cause so high into HP stats) with much better AP.
I hope you hear from some GG BP that really know what they are talking about. I am only going by what I've been told by some GG BP :P

When i was krowaz bp I had around 6k hp scrolled, which wasn't that bad. I could tank more than many int priests.
But theres almost no point to be bp any more. You will almost never find any parties running without int priests, which makes soloing way too hard.

Ive played bp for about a month lvl 80 in cz, i was paper build with undy/malice/15 master ( countercurse ) i had about 12k hp and nearly hitted 1.3k def with good def accessories. ap with book with hp set turned around 2.4-2.5 depending on def or ap accessories, and with strenght set hp was about 9k but ap was like 3.2k :) mostly hit warriors for about 800-900 dmg
But if you do paper bp in Cwest YOU MUST HAVE IRON SET AND DD CAP+6 ( minimum) if your CZ and best is either DS+7 but ofc gabs+7 is way better and i had that. Saved me alot ;) Do not attempt to survive sins w.o any dd they will mostly cp +spike u for 3k-4k.
Useless built : chitin ( too much int )
FP: never tried but could be a bit more cheaper than paper ( for dd helm ) needs 164 int so you get also a hammer like smith for hard times.
Krowaz: Never tried it yet, i personnaly prefer the hp over the ac cuz with paper you can always scroll for 2k if needed which got me to near 9k hp :) so para doesnt really affect you. The only good thing is prolly the def or the resists you get from so much int.
So for me it would be Paper BP(dd more rare) or FP ( cheaper but lower hp and def)
Weapon: HB+7 > II+8 for the elemental and the int ( more int = more skills before blue pots )
Best weapon for combo is the MS+8 but its overpriced atm...
thats about it hope i made it more clear :)
Last thing tho, before Krowaz came out Plate Build+8 was the Best BP build ever ( smith Hammer + dread as back up ) i wish they would delete krowaz so i can go back to that build xD . 1k less hp than paper, 150 more def and better resists. Was really a awesome 1 :)

I always thought full plate BP is the best way to go. You'll have good base ac and hp, while you will have room to put enough points into str.. Having good accessories, and you'll pwn everyone!
But remember, bp is probably the hardest class to play in cz, cause warriors and rogues will hit you so hard, and you'll never be able to solo :)

In my opinion, the best BP i've ever seen in cz it's a int bp... with good str accessories, u will have good ap, nice hp and gg ac..
