    The Survivor build (special Smiter)

    The Survivor
    (A different uber pala)


    1. Intro
    2. Gears
    3. Skills
    4. Stats


    [1]
    This build is made for awesome pvping and Uber tristing and it does it without problems at all.
    The Survivor is a char who has a super high resistance, good dmg reduce a high amount of armor and great dmg.

    [2]


    ------Armor------
    ~1. Guardian angel (this is the only Armor for this build)
    +

    You can up this armor if u want. It will give u around 600 extra defenses
    (witch with my holy shield gives me 4921 extra defense)
    it cost you 22 extra stats points if u use coa witch instead could be 66 life so make your choice( in my case it was 66+life or 5k def)

    ~~sockets:
    Um
    (Good for some extra resistances)
    or
    Ber
    (If you have a low dmg reduce do this. Aim for 35+dmr with fade active. This is the more expensive choice and I don’t feel its necessary)
    or
    Vex
    (If you done use Exile this it the best choice)
    ------Helmet-----
    1.Coa (Crown of ages)
    This helmet is the best helmet for this build because of the dmg reduce hit recovery and the great add of resistance

    ~~sockets:
    2 ums
    (if U have a low resist this is a good alternative)
    or
    2 bers
    (if you have a low dmg reduce do this. Aim for 35+dmr with fade active. This is the more expensive choice and I don’t feel its necessary)
    or
    1ber1um
    or
    15ias15res (recommended)
    (I think this might be the best sockets but it’s a bit expensive but totally worth it)


    2. Shako ( Harlequin Crest )
    This is my second choice because of the damage reduce, life, mana and the 2+ to all skills. and its a pretty easy item to get.
    ~~sockets: (same reasons as in coa)
    1 um
    or
    1 ber
    (Same on coa with 1 sox)
    ------Shield-------

    ++ Great defense bonus.
    + some resistance
    ++ 5 to max fire and cold resistance (1 of the main resesons)
    + extra defaura skills
    - Expensive
    - not that high extra resistance from a shield
    2. Hearald of Zakarum
    + Good block rate
    + Stats
    ++ Good resistance
    + Good smith dmg
    + 2 combat skill points
    + 2 all skills
    - no max resistance add
    - not so good defense
    ~~sockets
    um (22 + all res)
    or
    15ias/15res jewel

    ------Gloves-------

    1. Venom grip
    + crushing blow

    3. Steel rend
    + Crushing blow
    + extra str

    4. Anny gloves with 20 ias and some resists and stats

    ++ life tap
    ++ fade
    + might aura
    + prevents monster heal

    2. Heavens Might
    + 33 crushing blow
    + ias
    + paladin skills
    ++ 2 sockets
    ~~sockets
    2 shael's (good cheap sockets)
    or
    2 ber's (this would be really good it adds 40 extra crushing blow.But not worth it)

    3. Black (scourge)
    + 40 crushing blow
    + adds extra vita
    + extra ias
    - Knockback (some people likes it. I don’t)

    Re: The Survivor build (special Smiter)

    This is not a new Smiter, nor is it that special.
    There have been previous build guides on this, as well as several YouTube tutorials.

    And, you have horrible spelling, and it's not just from being stoned.


    TL;DR version for those of you too lazy to read:
    1 Point Smiter
    35k+ Defense Smiter
    30% CTC Life Tap
    ~100% Crushing Blow
    50% Damage Reduction
    95% All Resistances + Stack
    One expensive build.

    Re: The Survivor build (special Smiter)

    Also, for those of you wondering if this build is worth spending your life savings on,
    yes, it is an incredibly defensive build for just about any pvp situation.

    Re: The Survivor build (special Smiter)

    The guide on first impression has horrible spelling all around and a terrible layout but ill ignore that and focus on this build.

    The build is nothing special and has some weird choices and seriously isnt thought out and was just put here to get your name out.

    Your choice of helmet is COA with 2 15/15 jewels which are insanely expensive and unnecessary for your choice of weapons as all hit the max speed smite with very little outside IAS if any.

    Mighty scepter - 54 ias (heavens light sheal 15 ias jewel)
    Scourge - 35 ias (Black Gives 15 so 20 needed)
    Phaseblade - 8 Ias (Absolutely no point)

    Your glove choice is poor as Poison is rarely if ever a threat in ubur trist so a nice pair of blood gloves will thrash venom grip in all ways. A pair with 20 ias and 10 Crushing blow pretty much solves the whole IAS problem and can come with some other awesome mods at a 1/20 of the price of those insanely expensive jewels. IF you are dead set on insanely expensive jewels switch to 15/7s for a extra 14% FHR.

    Did you actually plan your build or just try to pile on the expenses?
    Did you actually need that much PDR reduction in trist? because ive found that elemental attacks are the only threat in around 900+ torch runs.

    In my opinion this would thrash your build and have massive stacked res without a boat load of resist charms

    Kiras 15/15(only because you like insanely expensive jewels otherwise UM)
    Gaurdian Angel (UM)
    Last wish Phase
    Sanctuary in a 45 resists Zak shield
    20 ias 10 Crushing blow blood gloves
    Gores
    Vendungos
    Maras

    245 all resists before Fade
    301 All resists after Fade

    15% Damage reduction before fade
    26% Damage reduction with fade

    Less Stats used which gives a higher life and gives more than enough resists to counter Mephs conviction and nearly keep 90 all resists without the use of rings or charms.


    Note
    Having Insanely high defense is not needed in ubur trist and your life tap is covered by last wish so might as well make it purely for the resists which Sanctuary can have up to 115 all resists which would vastly improve survivability without needing charms.

    Note
    Gear is assumed to be perfect atm but its only off by around 50 total resists but its still cheaper to get those all perfect than his COA.

    Re: The Survivor build (special Smiter)

    Well direct your friend to the stickys as this is insanely expensive "build" with some EXTREMELY questionable sockets and some items that would do the same thing with gear half the cost.

    The main thing is the 15/15 jewels are why they are recomended when they do very little for the build as a whole. It was clear it had no thought put into it.

    That and it would of been much quicker pointing to the stickies than creating a guide.

    Looks more like a tradelist done with adrina (or w/e it's called)

    Why not use coh or enigma? They are the best smiter armors.

    Re: The Survivor build (special Smiter)

    Why i dont use engima or coh is becouse it doesnt give the 15 to all max resistances which adds up my total resistance to 90 90 90 90

    Re: The Survivor build (special Smiter)

    No offense but this whole thing is just blatant uncalculated overkill. There's better complete gear setups for less than half the price of ONE of your sockets alone... DR is important up to a point but it's not your priority in ubertown; res are. Also it was already covered but you need little to no ias with those weps after fanat. Honest effort but major revisions needed...

    You mean 95/95/95/95. With the final setup.

    The Guardian Angel is a very suitable armor for a tanker build, however.
