    Need advice (1p Smiter)

    My pala is lvl 90.

    His gear:
    Grief phase blade
    Guillaume’s face helm
    gore rider boots
    dracul’s grasp gloves
    Thundergod's Vigor Perfect
    Fortitude
    HoZ
    Mara’s 30%
    Ravenfrost


    What should I put in the Guill and the HoZ? Or should I look for another shield instead of HoZ?

    My resists are
    75
    75
    90
    75
    Is there a idea of overstack with res?

    My biggest problem is the Iron Maiden. With Iron Maiden I die in one hit, is there anything I could do to resist the Iron better? I have about 1700 life.

    What gear do I need if I want to Bo?

    Do u have anyother advice on how I could/should evolve his gear?

    Thx for ur time

    'Um' Guillaume's and 'Um' or Pdiamond the HoZ. You need 125 extra resists on top of max in Hell to negate Meph's conviction.

    Second ring can be a resist ring (30 light/cold or [email protected]).

    To counter Iron Maiden, use Throwing Weapons with big damage, or Bows like Windforce. Gimmershed, Demon's Arch are both popular anti-IM weapons.

    My gear setup is almost exactly like yours (only Metalgrid [email protected] instead of Mara's), and I do Ubers just fine. Stuff your inventory with resist and life charms, and you're good to go.

    As for BO - I don't BO with my smiter, but if you want, a pala spirit + CtA + Anni + Mara should do the trick.

    If you use Grief, there is absolutely no need to up HoZ. Grief adds sick dmg, upping HoZ only a little compared to that.

    I have the same 1pt smiter setup. but I can't kill Uber meph for some reason... I tried with grief, LW, and Ebotd Zerker. I am suppose to use Smite on Ubers right? but smite seems slow compare to zeal, should I active Salvation instead of Fanaticism?

    lvl 83:
    max zeal, sacrifice, HS, Fanaticism, rest in Defiance

    1. Zerker is far too slow for an Uber Smiter. Plus the ED% does not add damage to smite.

    2. Both LW and Grief (in PB!) are pretty fast (I prefer Grief though). However, what you really need is the Crushing Blow. LW has lots, but I dislike it, and instead go with Grief + Gores + Guillaume's for 50% CB and massive smite damage.

    3. Only use Salvation if you die from Meph's elemental attacks.

    So true, it pisses me off beyond belief when I see noobs using eBotdz on their smiter. There is absolutely NOTHING on botd that increases your smite damage except for the +30 to all attributes. Using a botd as a smiter weapon is worse than using a 4 shaeled pb (at least you would get max smite speed).

    You know what's fun? There are only 3 mods on BotD that actually work with smite (2 if I'm wrong): IAS, +attributes and (not sure) PMH. That's it.

    I've dropped it as it doesn't exactly help kill.

    does Smite benefits from Crushing Blow? if yes, why you recommend Grief over LW? I'm confused as someone told me CB is the main stat that kills Ubers. Grief is for fast IAS to kill lots monsters. what am I misunderstood?

    The point is, you can get CB from many other sources. For example:

    Guillaume's Face
    Gore Riders
    Duress
    Blood craft Gloves

    Which means you can get the CB stat at a decent enough level without wasting 5+ HR's on Last Wish. I do successful Uber runs with 50% CB from Guillaume's + Gores.

    However, LW does not have IAS, so you have to sacrifice some other gear to reach the 6 frame Smite speed.

    Meanwhile, Grief adds +damage to Smite. While it is unimportant at the earlier stages (when CB works), it becomes much easier to kill monsters when their life is so low that CB is pretty much useless.

    Not to mention that you will leech so much that as long as 1. you don't lag and 2. you don't get one-hit killed, you are basically invincible with lifetap.
