    Uber Defense Smiter?

    I'm making my first real Smiter. I will play PvP with it and think that I will:

    Max Smite
    Max Fana
    Max Holy Shield
    Max Defiance.

    And for gear i play to use:

    33/385 Phase Grief
    Bloodfists
    37/12% Verdungo
    Goreriders
    2x Raven Frosts
    2 Pala Skills 18 str rare amu
    Pdia 191% non upg Zaka (I will maybe upg later)
    Arkaine's Valor 2 skills
    Helm maybe Andy

    If I would then get to lvl that I got all the skills maxed, wouldn't i have godly defense? Since I checked from Battle.net site that max Holy shield gives about 300% defense, and if I max defiance , which gives 15% defese to holy shield per level, we get to have a total of 600% defense. And if I will use the gear about, i will have a base of about 2k or so defense. And when I will cast Holy shield, i will get a lot of defense, but I'm not sure how much. So can someone good in maths tell me how much defense would I have in the end? And if I have around 20k defense, wouldn't i be able to tank most of the chars in PvP except for those godly eth Exile Grief smiter and the eBotd+Enigma Tele Barbs. So, what do you think? Will it be worth the time?

    Here's what i think, any smiter with maxed smite/fana/holy shield already beats everything that need AR so there's no real need to max defiance.

    IMO you should make either a smite/charge or simply a v/t :s

    20k isnt a lot actually. My old smiter used to have 29k def. He wasn't using any godly eth stuff too.
