    Cheap but efficient uber killer

    I made couple of frenzy Ukillers according to this thread.
    http://diablo.incgamers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=540653
    It was quite easy if you can use weapon or armor which you wish, but I think about limited budget build, when you use what you can afford, not what you need.

    I know that cheapest possible is smiter wit 6 shael crystal sword, 4 Pdiamond in 30+res elite shield, goblin etc. I'm not going to create character who die 7 times per one torch. I want to open Tristram and kill Ubers. I do not care if it takes 3 minutes more then perfect build with LW and EBOTD.

    I've tried few ladders ago
    Oath + Black scourges
    Lionheart armor (or Duriel), Arreat Face, Draculs, Raven + Rare res ring, do not remember amu but probably not Highlord

    Run was easy although quite long. Stuff price Mal + Draculs (Arreat and Raven were about 5 PGs). Even now, when Arreat is more expensive it should be cheap and efficient but... Unfortunatelly 4 sox eth scourge is extremelly rare weapon. Can be only selffound, because nobody collect it, then it is unable to trade.

    I think another weapon set can be Oath + Kingslayer but it is much more expensive.
    Do you have any other suggestions?

    I used eth oath + kingslayer in BB's at start of ladder. Worked fine, if a little slow because of low-ish ar. My set up was:

    Arreats
    HL Wrath
    Raven + Manald
    String of Ears
    Dracs
    Gore Riders
    Smoke Dusk Shroud
    Crappy Barb torch & crappy Anni
    Treachery pre-buff
    Filled up inventory with life, ar, and life/ar charms

    With liberal use of howl, I was never really in danger, but it took a little while. I've since upgraded my swords to eth botd cb & eth death cs, but kept the rest of the set-up except for swapping the manald with a 2nd raven.

    Hello barbs!

    Well, if you talk about price and want to make cheepest build I want your opinion about replacement Kingslayer for Rune Master axe. It means you use Oath berserker axe+Rune master axe.
    Kingslayer - MalUmGulFal
    Rune Master costs like Pul-Um(if not PGs) and has 5 sockets. If you put 4shael+PSkull+some ed jewel it could be same Kigslayer (if not better) but 10 times cheaper.
    What do you think?

    Rune Master has none of those mods. You need crushing blow and open wounds.

    The crushing blow on guill's face is enough, and if you've got gores you're set. Since IAS on the off-hand weapon doesn't matter much with frenzy, I'd go with Um-Eth-Eth-Amn-Amn in the Rune Master. I guess you could replace one Amn with a PSkull if you've got no mana leech elsewhere, and skip the Um if you've got open wounds already.

    Otherwise just get another Oath.

    You will need more tap to face meph just in case the wand wears out too quick. Plus the ow mod works really well in terms of killing speed.

    Re: Cheap but efficient uber killer

    IMO most important is CB (Kingslayer or Guili's) next is DS or CS (some axe/sword mastery) and Butcher is nice source. OW is very useful and helps a lot but it is not crucial Anyway can be found on Kingslayer and Butcher.

    Another important problem in Tristram are PI vampires. I see that nobody care of them, but they always were problem for me. When Ubers were killed Torch was still protected by group of dangerous monsters. That was the reason od using Azure sword as a main weapon in my final bulids instead of Grief (I do not like changing weapon in the middle of battle).

    I think another cheap option can be upped shaeled Butcher + Passion (Berserk vs PI) but in this option Guili's and Gore/Goblin are necessery.

    EDIT:
    Just found cheap and very cool combo :))))
    Fleshripper + Ghostflame as I remember sword mastery works with daggers. You have source of CB, DS OW and mana leach (all ubers hace very low drain effectiveness then you have chace to leach some mana but I do not expect that life leaching without life tap can be sufficient). Moreover Fleshripper with shael is very fast weapon.

    Re: Cheap but efficient uber killer

    A couple things:

    1--1 point in berserk is more than a match for any of the PI's in ubertrist. If you find yourself swarmed, hit howl then take them down 1 at a time. You certainly don't need to change weapons to deal with them.

    2--Daggers don't work with sword mastery (just tested to be sure).

    3--If you can't leech life (meph), mana leech doesn't work either. That said, frenzy has low enough mana cost that even if you get totally drained you should be able to regenerate fast enough to keep using it.

    Re: Cheap but efficient uber killer

    Hey i would like to mention the Uuber cheap Strength RW. As CB is more or less the only damage source on uubers this thing can actually work. Ezz to make and nice stats:

    35% Enhanced Damage
    25% Chance Of Crushing Blow
    7% Life Stolen Per Hit
    +2 To Mana After Each Kill
    +20 To Strength
    +10 To Vitality

    Amn + Tir super easy to get. I think it is best made in a phase blade cannot break and -30% weap speed. Using this beast on my smiter now and wanted to use is last ladder for my frenzy barb. Could not test it just yet because of ladder reset and lack of a 2 sox phase blade.

    I read something about ias not affecting the attack speed but the Wias IS affecting the attack speed.

    Well i think using Lawbringer in offhand is A lot better against those PI's As the Pi's in UT are all undeads and the (max) lvl 18 sanctuary "removes" the PI and for the monsters that are not PI the 20% decep on cast is just Awsome. I used Grief / Lawbringer all the way dirt cheap combination (got max lvl aura on first roll with the lawbringer and 399/38/25 on the first grief roll :thumbup:

    dirt cheap Lo rune costs 8-10 dirt Ists
    Lawbringer = zero damage. So, without good main hand it's not an option.
