Boots:Eth Treks? Gores?
Gloves: 20% IAS Crushing blow crafted
Amy:Seraphs ? maras?

Ur setup looks ok, though uncertain. Here are my suggestions, but im not an expert on the smiter.

Helm:Crown of Ages (2x ber if u can)
Armor:Fortitude
Weapon:Grief Zerker/ Phase Blade
Shield: Upgraded Hoz for skills / Exile for defense and life tap / Pheonix for crazy smite damage
Boots:Gores for the crush/bleed. If u need the str go with treks (u will kill in a couple hits anyways)

Gloves: 20% IAS Crushing blow crafted
Amy:Maras for resist against sorc's
Ring:Soj/Bk
Ring:Raven

Actually i do have a couple more ideas. If your smite damage looks pretty good, you could use a +str/+dex ring in place of the soj/bk. This will not only leave more points for you to put in life, but the +str will make your smite damage go up a bit, though not significantly. The downside is that you lose the +1skill (taking away from holy shield, thus lowering damage) and you lose some life if u use the bk ring. (of course this life can be regained by putting points intended for str (that ur ring gives you anyways) into vita.

Also, Upped HoZ rules! Not only do you get +4 smite and +4 holy shield from it, but it also provides resistances against those nasty sorcs. Also, the damage is very reliable. However, if your resistance isnt suffering or if you dont duel sorcs, go ahead and use that phoenix. I must admit, Phoenix does beef up that damage realy well.

Hope this wasnt too confusing lol.

Not at all confusing :D anyway yeah I was thinking that I have a couple +20 str rings lieing around just need to get some with good mods. Not sure if its really worth all the high runes to make pheonix I probably will eventually but till then i've been seeing lots of good stuff about upd hoz so I will stick to that for now it seems.

About the armor is fortitude the best armor I could use? My resists should be pretty good so I dont think id need a Coh but what about enigma or is there any other good options to think about? Thanks
