More resist. prebuff fade and use salvation while you are at it. Remember that mephy does a -125 all (except poison) on you.

Get MORE resist. Make a treachery and prebuff. Your lightning resist should be stacked to silly levels because Meph Lit will kill you if you do not have enough. Otherwise rely on 1 pt Salvation when u smite him.

Personally, I drop the LoH for draculs. Ubers have insanely fast health regen and that is not even funny.

After that you are pretty much set, remember you are using 1pt smite against them.

80 80 80 75 is not enough?
so i should use Tgold for Mephy rather then 15dr Verdungo?
and ill use dracs for maphy. thx

Not enough. Meph is running conviction that is -125 resist. Your 80/80/80/75 will be in - 40 resist in a short order and his lightning is by far the most painful.

If you can't get Treachery, better off smiting him with Salvation on.

ME TOO!

Seriously, I have max resists (75/75/90/75) in hell with my Zealot toon, yet his resists drop to around 50/50/70/75 WITH Salvation on against Meph. You really do need resists that high.

kk. i think LW gives u fade too..

Now the problem is that i have EbotdZ and LWZ. so which one do i use to smite them.. my dmg is really sad on smite. its like 700-1.5k. or is that enough

tgods has lightning absorb also, the damage received in uber trist is going to mainly elemental, so the dr in the verdungos wont help. get a couple of 10res lightcharms. If you havent noticed. except for a couple minor tweeks, everyone here is agreeing, resists..resists..resists. You'll be able to handle them, if you play smart. you want to seclude them. kill them one by one, and for mephy get as much extra res. as you can. your def and life are good. The lastwish gives might, crushing blow fade, and ctc lifetap, thus letting you keep laying of hands. The smite damage may seem low, but its 100% guaranteed to hit, thats the glory of it. The only other suggestion i have, is if you can afford it change your fort. to a chains of honor, has strength(if you need it) ed to demons, not much lower than fort, much higher res.(+65), and damage reduction and lifeleech. with 33k def, you wont miss the lower overall defense
Good luck.

Tgods is a nice belt to have as well. Or you can use IK belt for that awesome 31% resist to lightning and 28% resist to fire ! This are by far the 2 most damaging elementals in there.

LoH is not good in uber trist though, ED damage to demons does not work with Smite. I much rather use Draculs because of OW to stop ubers regen and kill them off just alittle bit faster.

Wooo.. okay. so if the ed damage to demons does not work with smite. then do i use COH or Fort?

ed to demon does not work. and i say use botd cuz LW has no ias. youd die WAY too quick. also, whats your cb w/o last wish?

I have run the ubers solo twice now without any of the sick you gear you have (thread on the help I received is here), I used

Guillaumes (sox um)
Seraphs (I didnt realise the ED to demons wouldnt work with smite)
Heavens light
Upped Guardian angel (sox)
Upped zaka (sox um)
draculs
tgods
gores
raven
+15 res all ring
9 15 mf gcs
a self-found anni 16 10
a 18/10 necro torch, purely for the resists
and prebuff with treachery

now with this and a 1 pt salvation (9 with +skills) I get 458 res all including anya, so even with mephs conviction i have 90 90 95 90!

I might be a little slow, it has taken me 1 minute and 2 minutes respectively to kill them all, but I havnt really had any problems, and i just got a grief, which I would reccomend, it just take me roughly 5 seconds to batter uber-lilith into the floor!

You're res is fine. If you play it right you'll not get hurt at all. I've done ubers with under max all res. LT and Bo take care of that for you.

Your only concern is hitting the ubers and not all the minions when you zeal. You spread around your damage too much. Smite the uber and use cb to really lower his health and then try zealling maybe. But I find it's better to use grief and smite to death.

My hammerdin can solo ubers with a 1pt smite and using a wizspike, as long as u have high, high resists, Lifetap, Open Wounds (hint:wear dracs) and a bit of crushing blow and the rest of your gear doesn't really matter. Seriously these are the only things u need to worry about. Smite Damage hardly matters, it'll lower your kill speed a minute or two at best. Stacked Resists + Lifetap + Open Wounds + Crushing Blow = Dead Ubers.
