    1st...no merc
    2nd...switch armor to trech. for prebuff, and coh*if u can afford it* for the res, boots to gores if u can get a pair, belt to tgods, gloves to dracs for tap, and maybe have a life tap wand for fast tap to insure u stay alive till tap from dracs procs

    I would say you would have to switch out IK gloves to dracs, or alternatively switch out hoz for exile (though that would drop your resists). Either way I think the lifetap is all you need. Since you don't have fanat (I hope your Heaven's Light is double shaeled) you can just run salvation the whole time to cover your resists. You DON"T want to run HF while you're in there because the ping dmg might attract more attention than you want.

    As for merc, the best merc by FAR for uber trist is a dead merc. Kill him before he does something stupid in trist.

    I don't know if it's possible or not but it will certainly be harder. Your smiting speed will be very slow because you don't use Fanat.

    I have life tap wand on switch and y my heavens light is double shaeled...so there can be no benefit from my HF aura up there? is there any other way to speed up my smite other than fanaticism?

    Sry, I would say no benefit from the HF aura.

    Elemental dmg doesn't get added to smite. And smite should be the only skill you use against the ubers. -This is neither detrimental nor beneficial

    The ping dmg might attract too many minions with a high lvl, large radius aura -This is likely to be detrimental

    The slow effect is the only possible redeeming quality -This is possibly beneficial

    So the question is whether having the slow outweighs attracting more mobs. That is up to you to decide since we all have different comfort lvls in UT.

    Regardless of your decision I'm still of the opinion that you'd be better off running salvation as your main aura in UT, assuming you don't have a higher lvl conviction than meph does

    As for speeding up, you've got 60ias on weapon. If that's all your IAS then your at an 8frame smite. You need 86 total ias to hit 7 frame smite, and 180 total ias to hit 6 frame.
