    Best Uber partner

    What would be a good uber partner for a Frenzy Barbarian, Cost is nowhere near an issue when it comes to gear, I currently have a quite good fishymancer. However, i didnt know if this would be good or if something would be alot better, Any suggestions?

    eh, he's a good solo character. i'd suggest something to take some pressure off with crowd control (though you can have howl to deal with crowds). hate to say it but, hammerdin

    Which is a good solo? The frenzy or the necro? And anything uther than a hammerdin, I prefer to have fun with the game than play a massively overpowered class =P

    I'm pretty sure both the frenzy Barb and the necro are capable of soloing the Ubers. I've done it with a summoner before, not too hard so long as you have an enigma.

    Zealer with 1 point smite and CB gear can solo it easily and cheaply.

    I think you can solo them with a frenzy barb.
    If you really want a partner try a hammerdin to make things faster (he would kill the minions and give extra damage). If you cast life tap, he can get life too by switching to smite for 2-3 hits (yes, you can! :p).

    I have always used a 1 pt smite fanazealot for the ubers. Works wonders.

    Zealer. (To everyone saying 1 point smite zealer, you aren't a zealer without holy shield... i.e. 1pt smite).

    It's just a way of emphasizing the use of smite on the zealer :)

    So how would i use said zealer with 1 pt in smite, Zeal like hell and occasionally smite or what? Also any more builds to add on are always appreciated, we can even turn this into a discussion about best ubers teams.

    Well the best partner to me would seem a Paladin for all the nifty aura's you can get from him.

    If you go with a zealer you get fanaticism.
    If you go with a hammerdin you get concentration.

    Not to mention the one point wonders like redemption/vigor/cleansing, etc..

    actually you aren't a zealer if you don't have zeal. There are 2handed zealers out there without holy shield.

    The only thing you smite is the ubers and bosses, its much quicker to zeal regular monsters since smite knocks them back and you have to run to get another hit off. Zeal will hit 5 times which is much better than one smite.

    Re: Best Uber partner

    When I did the ubers with my zealer I didn't care about the minions... I just smited the uber bosses 'till they were down and grabbed the torch and got the hell out of there. With lifetap you regain your hp quickly enough not to have to worry about the minions. At least, that's my experience. I've only done the ubers 3 times or so.

    Either multi or strafe would work. Actually the best crowd control solution with a zon as partner would be to forget about damage and just use gear that gives you 100%+ to "causes monsters to flee" mod. That way all of the minions would be out of the way. It would be like having a singer with you to howl at them.
