Couple uberkilling questions

i've been reading a lot and from testing gear in single player i've come up with this setup i like but i just need to know if it would work in uber trist or not

gear :
grief phase
coh dusk
draculs
guillaume's (-req since i really really hate the req on it)
mara's
raven
20str 6ml ring (nothing else has ml and the 20str is very useful)
tgods
goblin toes or gores....dont have gores yet so going with goblin toes right now :D
all res pally shield with pd's (+121res if lucky)
some pala torch

with this setup i would have around 60 all res in hell including the annoying uber mephi aura so i wouldnt need that many res charms

as for skills pretty much same as 1pt smite guide except for one thing, before maxing my sacrifice i thought of putting a couple points in resit lightning to increase the max res

so my questions :
will this gear setup work to gather keys, gather organs and clean uber tristram?
will i be able to absorb any lit dmg from uber mephi while wearing tgods and having 90lit res?

thx in advance ^^

As long as your res is up and you have something that is going to cast lifetap (like your dracs) you should be able to do it. You don't have to have the ultimate in gear with maxed out crushing blow, it just takes a bit longer without it, but it is still do-able. For light res, just try to find a gc with 20%+ light res on it, I have two of them on my smiter for that.

My uberkiller uses a similar setup only a couple things are different. This is my setup that:
greif pb
guillaumes face
+2pally all res ammy
coh
eth up'd hoz
dracs
dwar star
ravenfrost
tgods
double up'd goblin toe
no torch or anni so that I am able to pick them up.
couple all res gcs and a couple p combats
treachery in my stash to precast fade if i want to.

Seeing how the gear is almost the same I can say that you will be fine. For keys hunting I would recommend a hammer pally or a sorc so you can tele right to countess/summoner/nilth. And if you are planning on useing that pally for d key runs throw on a natures peace to get rid of the corpses you leave behind around nilth.

a

Heres my gear setup, it works good on all ubers.

Boots: Gore Riders
Gloves: Dracs
Helm: Um'd Andiarial's Face
Ammy: Highlords
Rings: Soj/Ravenfrost
Armor: Coh (dont remember which kind)
Weapon: The Lacerator Winged Axe, 33% crushing blow, open wounds, and prevent monster heal, works great when you are just about broke lol.
Shield: Eth Vortex Exile 44resists
P torch, Anni, life charms and some pally gcs.

he does 2.6k dmg, lots of crushing blow/deadly strike.... works fine for me.

Lacerator does not have any CB (leaving you with only 15% total). It also overrides Lifetap when Amp Damage is cast. I don't think it's a good Uber weapon/setup you are using, but if it has worked for you then good job.

Maybe i was thinking of deadly strike then, and yeah the lifetap override is a bit of a pain. The rest of the setup is good tho imo, ne suggestions on a better weapon?

so my questions :
1- will this gear setup work to gather keys, gather organs and clean uber tristram?

2- will i be able to absorb any lit dmg from uber mephi while wearing tgods and having 90lit res?

thx in advance ^^
1- Just take your best char and do key runs, will be easier that way.

Organs are no problem, the only tough one is the Furnace of Pain, keep a spare Enigma on your char, tele to Izzy and lay it on him. You don't want to try to fight your way through all the Oblivion Knights that tend to be in there, Lifetap is a fast way to get b0rked and be in a hard place. As soon as you get by him, switch your armors and have fun. This works good for Countess also, but you can just bash your way through all the hell witches also. Duriel is a joke lol.

2- Yes, you can light absorb. I wear Tgods and one Wisp (with a raven on the other hand).

This char is pretty good for fighting lilith,fighting Duriel,but not appropriate for izual(iron maiden).I see no problems in Ubertristram,but this char is useless for keyfinding.A key finder needs teleport, anything else is a waste of time.Best chars:Infy-lightsorc, hammerdin with enigma,enigma trapsin.

DS does not work for smite. In any case if u want another cheap weapon but powerful for smiting, try shael shael Heaven's Light !:grin:
