Have u ever tried to look in the "builds" section of this forum?

Specifically under the "uber smiter" build and "zealer" build?

If you want a character that can easily solo hell with large dmg and destroy ubers, then id go with a zmiter. Skill setup would be as followes
20 Smite
20 Fanaticism
20 Holy Shield
1-4 Zeal (let your +skills take it up to 4+)
20 Sacrifice (gives a better dmg bonus to zeal than zeal does itself)
Remaining points would go into defiance for the defense synergy to HS.

As for equipment,
Weapon: Grief Phase Blade (so you dont have to repair it)
Armor: Archon or Dusk CoH/Fort
Shield: Exile in a 30+ resist all Kurast Shield
Belt: Verdungoes
Ring 1: Ravenfrost
Ring 2: BK
Helm: CoA 2os/Guillaimes
Boots: Gores
Gloves: Draculs
Inventory: As many combat skillers/ +life scs as you can afford, throw in a torch and anni unless you have no other mules to get torches.
Pretty much it...

Why Exile though? I don't understand what's so good about Exile, besides giving you lifetap and defiance. What makes it so wanted for smiters?

You put your finger on it: life tap is the only thing that makes smiters viable against the ubers. If you have a LW phase blade, maybe exile is unecessary, but exile triggers life tap nice and quick, and then you're lauging all the way to the trade forums to unload your 10/11 sin torch.

its recommended to use exile for uber runs because the lifetap is crucial for survival and it just casts more frequently with exile than just plain dracs. but if you can handle the heat, just use dracs and an up'd hoz and you will be fine. you might die a few times but just make sure the game has been up for 5 minutes, leave and come back. you should only have problems with meph if lifetap doesnt cast right away.

i used to uber with my hammerdin when i didn't have a uber killer.

my equip... i think
helm: guliammes.
armor: enigma or my mercs fort, can't remember.
weapon: last wish pb.
shield: hoz.
gloves: laying of hands.
boots: gore riders.
ammy: maras or 2/2 seraph.
belt: arachnid.

its possible. it was a hassle switching my gear to uber. used to wear enigma to tele to the lower 3 then tele and switch armor to kill. hassle. instead of fantasism you use conviction. it's doable, but the best way to do it tho. you just smite, you have 1pt in it, that's enough. i always found it a hassle to pick up the organs. the rooms were always packed and i wasnt a great at clearing. the main three were never a problem.

as long as you have life tap you can uber. exile is overrated and overpriced. a up'd hoz will do much better and cost a lot less.
