    Ammy: I use Highlord
    Ring: BKs
    Armor: CoH
    Helm: Shako until U can get a good CoA
    Boots: Gores
    Gloves: IAS is best


    As for your skills, I recommend that you put some into resis auras. This is really useful for sorcs and auradins. I have a total of 14 points for my auras. 2 hard points into salvation, just for those duels when there are a few different sorcs in a game. WW pikers, Boners, and Zons give me the most trouble.

    Expect to hear BM and whining from ppl when you smite them into the grnd :lol:

    It's fun to piss stupid people off...
    however, start messing up games and be ready for someone to bring in a dual wielding ww barb and then.... Be ready to be nk or "Save and Exit".. :\

    Also you'd do good to keep some sorbing gear in stash Vs. sorcs.... Such as Tgods, snowclash, ravens, wisps, dwarfstars, hotspurs...blablabla...

    Just to experiment, try using a SS, vs other smiters, I expect with the massive damage of grief, the 35% PDR will give you and edge.
    And a highlords isn't necessary unless you need the ias to hit 6fpa

    This is going to be my next char.. this is what he will be using

    Weapon: Grief
    Armor: Coh
    Helm: Ber Ber CoA
    Shield: Exile
    Ammy: 28 Maras
    Boots: 198 Upped Gores
    Ring 1: 240/20 Raven
    Belt: 38/15 Dungos
    Ring 2: Rare ring (str dex, resis, leech)
    Gloves: Bloodfist.

    With that gear, I should get max FPA even with just grief.

    as for those 1 point wonders.. im thinking salvation vs sorcs.

    If you're a Smiter, HoZ reigns SUPREME over all other shields...

    If you're a melee paly but not smiter, Exile will do better.

    I much prefer ss on my zealot over exile or anything else (except maybe alma). gives massive dr and the strength I need to equip my coa. leaves me free for fort+tgods+other goodies for 30k defense and massive resists, life, and dr. gotta love grief!

    you asked for 1 point wonders, charge is one of those. you're a smiter, not a chargadin. you use charge only to get close your enemys, but still you can do some high damage even with 1 point in it. also holy freeze is a 1 pt wonder, which i use a lot.
    I have a foh pala, which uses a base lvl smite and fana as alternative attack. with only 1.9k dmg I can kill most smiters with my smite by just flashing holy freeze so i get the first hit. it works really well, trust me.

    Wrath, a pure smiter will max Fanat, smite, holy shield, and defiance, with the rest of the points going into charge.

    still a few questions I have:
    CoH vs. Fort
    dracs vs. steelrends vs. bloodfist
    highlords vs. maras

    smite has ignore target def so AR is only important for charge backup right?
    and deadly strike doesn't work but OW and CB will right?

    im having trouble testing this myself because of grief's bugs

    CoH vs. Fort ---> I would think that most use fort, and would only bring out a CoH when they need [to stack] res
    dracs vs. steelrends vs. bloodfist ---> steelrends has a extremely high str req, so its a tossup between dracs and bloodfists. Personally I would choose bloodfists as the 3 useful mods of dracs are:
    OW--> Most duels are over very quicky with grief + if you hit them and cause OW, you'd probably be able to hit them again and kill them in several more hits [so not too useful]
    Str ----> possibly useful to save pts that could go into vit
    ctc tap ---> again with the high dmg of grief, most duels are over before taps can cast [not too useful]
    Bloodfists
    10 IAS ---> useful for hitting the 6fpa bp if your using grief in a zerker
    40 life ---> beats the vit saved by the dracs's str
    30 fhr ---> useful for hitting the next bp vs trappers, etc
    Overall, I would choose bloodfists [Upgrade them if your can for better def]
    highlords vs. maras
    Again, I would only use highlords if you need the 20%ias to hit the 6fpa smite bp if your using a grief zerker

    It is best to atleast get 5 x Palladin Combat Gcs before any of the other gear the damage is very important.

    Skills:
    Max Smite
    Max Fanat
    Max Holly Shield
    10 Conviction
    16 FOH
    8 Holly Shock


    I find a SMite/FOH pally to be very godly. Forces people to wear lightining gear and then you can own them with Smite and Charge...


    Stats:
    Base Str
    60-70 dex
    ALL VITA

    My Gear on NonLadder

    Ber Shako
    Rare Amy : +2pal, str, dex, resis
    Upgraded HOZ with Ber
    1052 Mage Plate Enigma
    Crafted Gloves : 20ias, 10 CB ,Life Or Upd BloodFists
    34/15 Verdungos
    Rare Boots 30frw 20fhr resis
    Perf Raven Frost
    BK Ring

    Weapons: Lacerator( For Melee Only ) , Silence PhaseBlade ( Sorcs mainly ) , Kingslayer Beserker Axe (Barbs Only) , Asteron (For anyone )

    IMPORTANT:
    Have + Resis without using Silence
    Have 48% fhr breakpoint minimum
    Try for 3k+ health with BO
    15k+ Defence
    45-50% Damage Reduce (VERY IMPORTANT FOR MELEE DUELS)


    If I was on Ladder i would subsitiutte All my Weapons except Silence for Grief and keep all other gear the same.

    LoL biggest reply ive ever done hopefully someone will read and find it usefull.

    Any Questions whisper me online *Red-Devils and say "say post on forums about smitter i need sum advice" ill do my best.

    some people also go foh/smite. focusing more on foh than smite. since ou ahve grief i hear you can hit 7k foh and 7k smite. pretty damn scary either way.
