    if your on useast ladder i can back you up in game if needed.

    safety net:
    treachery prebuff
    gores for the treks as niner said.. though you can do w/o just will take longer.
    i also prefer dungos/ik belt in that order

    also get a lifetap wand from shops.... casting before you go in = instant win because sometimes dracs just dont proc when you want them... (i use zeal to proc, or rather did before i got exile)

    ps: ignore everyone saying you need top gear.. it can be done with cheap stuff.. and honestly who cares if ubers die in 20 seconds or 50 seconds.. its not like you have 100 organ sets and your day is full of uber running :p And to be honest it is MUCH more fun to have some challenge...i rushed ahead with my pally and lucked out on some trades and got really good gear.. and now i basically have to try and not die... and its not as much fun... thats why im making a zeal sorc to run ubers :) and since im poor its being rather hard :p

    Zeal Sorc, could you tell me how that turns out.
    Im currently running a untwinked enchant zealsorc with a friend, were gonna go norm,nm,hell, ubers.

    Just so this Isnt complete spam, I dont know If you have ever ran ubers before but if you spawn Meph first it makes life easier, but dont just run straight into the town as you spawn all three that way.

    someone beat me to the punch, sorc forums someone already completed a uber run :/ but i was already leveling /gearing mine so im gonna see it through... And as far as ubers i personally just run straight in because my char is pretty much at the top limit for gear... but the safest way i have found is to run north till edge run all west all south east to middle building and pull mephy back into SW corner.. and kill then run north run a bit east pull baal kill then go kill diablo.

    ps: sorc is gonna be a zealer sorc :) but i MIGHT have to get something else for the boss'es zeal takes forever and sorcs lack the pally fortitude(not the armor:p)

    how much crushing blow is needed? I already have 65% with heavenlight and guiliam. Also, why is dungo or ik belt better? I am on useast ladder but i still need to get the keys. I have a question. Does the same key still drop even if you already have one?

    The more CB, the better (and faster).
    The same key will drop if you have one. If you're lucky, you'll sometimes get two keys in the same drop.

    Stick to gores instead, its better.

    As for why IK belt or dungo are good choices in belt here it goes:

    IK belt
    El cheapo belt
    +25 to str (nothing impressive but that 25 pts saved goes to vit)
    Lightning Resist +31%
    Fire Resist +28%

    The 2 big elemental damages that will constantly tear you apart are Lightning and Fire in Uber trist. A 30% boost against those elementals is nice eh ? Its great for those making an Ubersmiter on a budget !

    Dungos
    10% Faster Hit Recovery
    +30-40 To Vitality (varies)
    Replenish Life +10-13 (varies)
    Damage Reduced By 10-15% (varies)

    Nuff said, DR, life regen and Vit. That is excellent for prebuff with CTA.

    But then again Tgods is not a bad belt at all

    +20 str
    +20 vit
    +10 Max LIT resist
    +20 lit absorb

    are very friendly mods against meph.


    These 3 belts are great to use in their own right so it up to your choice. If you are struggling for resist, IK, lots of resist but like more life, Dungoes, like an all round friendly belt, Tgods.

    Would you guys recommend smiting Mephisto with Salvation on? I guess without Fana and Fortitude, 1 point Smite won't do enought damage to finish him?

    Hell Drognan (spelling?) is your best bet for shopping a life tap wand. Yes, you want one with charges. If you are lucky, you can get one quickly, but it may take a very long time if you're not. I've shopped wands twice. The first one took 3 minutes of exiting and re-entering town, but the second one took 35 minutes...ARGH!!! I'm not sure how character level affects your chances, but hopefully one of the resident gurus can give/point you to that info.

    Gores is better because you dont just need Crushing Blow, you need a source of Open Wounds to combat the Ubers extremely high life regen; Gores provides both.

    This doesn't work. +Vitality from items isn't multiplied by BO, only hard points into Vitality and +Life (not +Life per Character Level) is affected.

    Thundergod's Vigor is probably the best PvM belt in existence, and though IK is cheaper by a small margin, T-Gods should be considered 'end-game' gear by anyone who is pure PvM. Dungo's is almost strictly PvP gear; you should never need DR against Ubers, 1 point of DR helps you dramatically less than 1 pt of max resists in PvM and so I would highly suggest T-Gods.

    Smite with some Crushing Blow and Open Wounds will finish him with Salvation on almost as fast as with Fanatacism; if you are worried about resists go the safer route, you don't need to worry about time, only mana supply.

    Life Tap (18) Head(24)[60/6], Daggers(24)[60/6], Wands(24)[60/6], Axes(48)[20/3]

    Those are the items you can get Lifetap charges on. Yes you can shop them.
