building bada** super smiter...

so this post died and i really needed help on it but no-one is helping...so a re-post of it may help?...also i dont know if this is against

anyway...im deciding to make a smiter, and i am rich enough, but im non-ladder...so none of those good rws for me...just the usual botds etc.
i wanna fight all chars including sorcs,neccys etc so im using equipment to gimme max resis...
This is my kit:
shako(um)-dont have gd coa
maras20/25
coh
exile 30/35resis
eth botd ba 387%
verds/tgods
gore
draculs**/cleglaw
rest of resis from charm

**does the life tap of draculs work with the life tap of exile to gimme 25% or do they cancel each other out?...

Also im kind of stuck with my build options...and ive checked the builds...theyre good but not v useful for me...and i want to be a pure smiter

Build 1
max smite
max fana
max holy shield
max charge
rest on vigor (synergy)

build 2
max smite
max fana
max holy shield
max charge
rest on defiance

build 3
max smite
max fana
max holy shield
max defiance
rest on charge

which build should i do?...is my kit ok? and what about the draculs and exile life tap?also what smiters do u have? and how gd are they?

Those are the main questions

Thnx

Err Botd sucks for smite. Use Asteron/Redeemer on NL. Go for Up'd Hoz for shield and for armour, ditch the CoH for Stone or Duress.

I would go with build 3.

K, for next time, don't bump your posts. you can edit your posts to put whatever information you forgot, instead of making another post.

Astreons, fury, and i guess redeemer (bad range) are good NL weapons. Doom not really, my shael'd pb can beat doom smiters, which means a dirt cheap phaseblade > doom.

I'd go with build 2, defiance doesnt need to be maxed. most of the time you'll be hit with either 15k or 25k defense...i personally wouldn't even touch defiance. But it could save you sometimes, but max charge first.

Ebotd is bad for smite, only smite with it in emergencies, like if you were charging and want to get a quick smite in.

Like others said, upd HoZ >>> any exile. And shako > coa.

It also depends a lot on charms. My smiter has 10 combats with life, he doesnt use CTA nor Lifetap nor Astreon's and it's + damage. But he can still easily take down 10 combat, lifetap, BO'd astreon smiters. (no i dont use lacerator either x_x)

It all depends on your secondary attack, and knowing how/when to smite.

if u want to be bm. Doom zerker gives u the best result. (ow and holy freeze slow down their attack speed)

Yes, the percentage for u to cast life tap on striking will be higher when u smite or charge.

IMO, doom > asteron. (both are bm items) None bm items? fury (grief in ladder)

A little off your topic, but I'm sick of everyone saying something is bm. Who cares, you're winning. If you want to be touchy on bm, look at enigma. It's crazy having necros and druids teleporting all around. Doom's hf aura won't slow them down anyway, they're casters. If you're gonna duel, use every legit item available to win. Dueling in general is bad manners.

in pubs u can use those items. Not private dueling league though. (thats why most ppl in pubs suck cuz they dont know what to do)

i can kill most ppl pubs without cta.
 
Get yourself grief when the ladder ends?
Don't go for doom if wanna be able to kill barbs :(
I haven't read this thread very carefully though, but I think when you have 10% of cast on one item and 10% on another you should have 20% together if you aren't a barb using two weapons.

Hope this helps :)

I don't agree with any of those builds :/
Mostly because there's no single res auras.

mine's something like 20 hs, 20 fanat, 20 smite, and then 8-12 ish in defiance, alternating points into single res cold / light. Iirc, 4 and 4 base pts atm.

If you want to kill the cold sorcs // foh's, this is practically a must, vs the good hlds. They will run, and you need to be able to tank several hits because it'll take a while to get a name lock on them.

you get 1 pt +max res for every 2 hard pts into the aura.

My pally does quite well against pretty much everything, except for windies. The minions get in the way :/
MB trapsins are esp. annoying.

uses 9x vita combats, 1x vita defensive,
roughly 900 dam / hit after pvp reduction, assuming 50% DR.

hope this helps.

hmm....if i put a lvl in them will they increase my resis passibely or will i keep having to put tha aura on?....also ill have max resis in hell with the coh and about 20/30 all with the eni...

Any decent sorc / conv pally will tear you a new one, if you have no stack.

75% all in hell + (-200% conservative...-250% realistically) off cmastery = 1 dead pala. Same goes for auradins + foh'ers :/

The auras give 1% +max passively for every 2 hard points.
