    Yes, Silence still works.
    btw why do you want to make a Silence? What's your char. and build?

    If you need res, use allres GCs. You don't need any skillers or +life charms on a melee paladin, for example. That also means you can use e.g. a torch which doesn't add to pala skills.

    I'm using a fana-zealot versus Ãœbers:

    Skills:
    max zeal, sacrifice, fanaticism, holy shield
    1 in redemption
    rest in resist fire (adds +1 to max fire res per 2 hard points, even when not active)
    You already have 1 point in smite, it's a holy shikled prereq and you just need it for hitting Ãœbers all the time

    Stats:
    Enough in str for gear
    Enough in dex for max blocking while holy shield is running
    Nothing in energy
    All the rest in vit

    Gear:
    Guillaumes+Um
    Grief Phaseblade
    HoZ+pdiamond
    Smoke armor
    Dracul's
    T-God's
    Goreriders
    Highlord's
    Dual leech ring
    Ravenfrost
    Wand with lifetap charges and a shield with good res in the weapon switch

    Enough res charms for having 125% fire, cold and lightning res beyond your maximum, to compensate -res from Meph's aura (allres GCs are best)

    Strategy:
    Cast lifetap from the wand on the Übers (Dracul's will keep it running during the fight), smite the übers (Meph first!), zeal everything else.

    That paladin will also be excellent for solo Baal runs or getting organs. If you can afford it, give him Enigma to speed up things, as well as Wizardspike and any Spirit roll on any paladin shield in the weapon switch, for quicker teleporting.

    Re: Silence Runewords...

    I have 75 res on all but i guess i will increase it to 125% my hear is:
    Gaze
    AP Coh
    Arach
    bk ring
    raven
    highlords
    dracul
    hoz+pdiamond
    lighsabers (i am still looking for a Lo rune to make grief)
    treks

    i am still looking for gores and grief... but trading is so hard! these days... i will get charms and um'd helm when i get a better one... but i really need a good wep!

    i max
    sacrify
    zeal
    fana
    holy shield
    and trying to max smite...

    had my strengh for gear
    max dex for 75% blocking with holy shied and have like 300 on vitality...
    0 mana

    i can kill in hell but takes long time because of my weapon...

    Consider making an Oath (in an ethereal weapon).

    Re: Silence Runewords...

    You are lacking any form of crushing blow, which is really hurting your kill speed.
    Goblin Toe boots / Gore riders / Guilluames Face / Heavens Light / Black Runeword etc etc should be a priority.

    Another suggestion is Static Field via Cresent Moon / Stormlash etc, not sure SF works on ubers etc, but it will certainly speed up Hell killing in general.

    If I was really short on resistances I'd use a Wizzardspike and get CB from elsewhere, I certainly wouldn't use a Silence as there are many much better / cheaper ways of getting resistances. (personally i just bite the bullet and use Salvation vs mephi)

    Static field works on Ubers. However because they have such high lightning resistances, it´s not worth using imo.

    Imo you should sell the coh, get a grief pb, duress, guillamies, gores and as many res charms as you need to get 70-75 res all.

    If you hate res charms you could um shield + guillamies, get an [email protected] ring and wear credenum ([email protected]) which should only leave a little bit of res down from coh - easily filled with a single res lc/gc.

    Oh and arach + bk is a massive waste of wealth on this type of character, trade those if you're struggling.
