    My 1pt Smiter, can he solo ubers? (I'm kind of poor!)

    So, I don't have perfect equipment on this character, but he took out the organ bosses pretty easily, and now I have my first organ set. My question basically is should I keep farming organ sets or should I give it a go and try to solo uber tristram as the build is originally intended to do.

    Here's all the facts about my dude, DarthZealot:

    Stats:

    Str 186
    Dex 156
    Vit 205
    Enr 25

    Maxed resists and block (after holy shield).

    Skills:
    20 Sacrifice, 20 Zeal, 20 Holy Shield, 20 Fanatiscm, 1 Smite, 1 in pres, 1 into useful auras.

    Equipment:

    Weapon - Grief Phaseblade.

    Shield - Moser's with 2 Pdiamonds in it for 64 resists. Not the best, but does the job.

    Helm - Guillame's Face

    Armor - Smoke Runeword in a Boneweave. Resists are pretty good, but I know this could use upgrading.

    Gloves - Dracul's Grasp

    Boots - Gore Riders

    Belt - String of Ears. Not sure on these, the damage reduction seems neat, and I like the added life leech, plus in this current setup I don't need more resists from anything.

    Rings - Ravenfrost and Resist Ring. At this point I think I have around 185 total to all my resists, since I maxed them before realizing I hadn't done the anya quest in one mode (duh) so there's so room for improvement there as well, the ring is completely extra.

    Ammy - Resist Ammy, 29 to all. Keeps 'em nice and high.


    I'm basically waiting on enough stuff to get another Mal and Ko rune so I can make a Fortitude armor and a Sanctuary shield, but even without those, could I solo the uber three?

    Thanks everyone!

    To have maxed resists after Meph's conviction, you need a grand total of 300 resists.

    You can:

    1. Switch out the String for Credendum (belt from Disciple set, [email protected]).

    2. 'Um' Guill Face, [email protected]

    3. Do not ditch the res ring. My own Uber Smiter uses a magical [email protected] ring.

    4. Get a boatload of small, large and grand charms with cold and lightning resists. Fire is secondary in Uber Trist, and Poison is completely irrelevant.

    5. If you can afford it, upgrade to HoZ with Pdiamond asap. Not only for the extra [email protected], but for other sexy bonuses it offers as well.

    Other things:

    a. Why so much dexterity? Paladin has a base block of 67% with Moser's (and 75% with HoZ, so not much difference). I have 65% block at level 90 with ~147 dexterity (120 base, rest from Raven/Annihulus), WITHOUT Holy Shield. I inevitably max out block whenever I cast my lvl 20 Holy Shield. Do not get more dex than you need.

    b. WAY too much strength. You only need around 80-90 base to be able to equip all your gear. I REALLY hope you listed your stats AFTER gear.

    c. Too little Vita. Those points you wasted in strength/dex should've been put into life.

    Those points are after gear, but I probably did muff them up a bit as this was my first ever character on bnet, and I just kind of dug him up, rushed him and finished him a few days ago.
    I had never read about the 300 resists crap, damn, that's a whole new thing to worry about. I have tons of resist charms laying around though, I'll just throw as many as I can in before I do anything.

    Just put salv on when fighting meph and you will be good.

    You don't need fort or sactuary, get a griswold shield and throw 3 pdiamonds in it and you have 102 all resist.

    make a treachery, go stand in the fire in the river of flame until Fade activates, and then put your normal armor back on, you will have 15% PDR and a huge res boost.

    If you're softcore you can consider trying it, or wait on better gear if you need to.

    If you're hardcore then your vit is far too low, don't even try.

    He can equip all his gear with 90 base because he doesn't have anything that requires more str.

    Thanks everyone for the input.
    I might give it a try soon, I'll report back for those pulling for the poor guy, lol.

    Oh, and, with Salvation on I'll still smite fast enough to not get killed? Cuz that really would solve the problem!

    Thanks again,

    Seeing that you have a grief, yes. It's 1 frame slower, but it's all good.

    I did it, and got a 10/20 Assassin torch... worth anything?

    Thanks for the help again guys!

    Not much and this isn't the place to ask, trade values forum is for that.

    You're kinda poor, LOL... you got Grief, Dracul's, Smoke and Gore Riders, if that's poor, i'm broke! (i'm missing the first 2)

    On the other hand, have you considered a 4 PDiamond elite pally shield with 35-45 base res? this should pretty much add another 50-60 to your total resists.

    Also, when you guys say 300 grand total resist, that includes Anya quests or no? so is it 270 from items or 300 from items?

    My setup idea was something along 260 - 280.

    Hmm, funny, you use pretty much the same gear as I had on my uber-trist smiter!

    BTW, the smoke armor don't really need to be replaced, its a great armour IMO (I had the wealth for CoH and all that, but I love smoke).

    GL on your future trists!!!

    Why you love smoke over CoH? (apart from the fact that smoke is easier to make). The stats on CoH are all better than on smoke.
