    Just remember to switch to conviction (if higher than 20 to override meph) or salvation (for stacked resist which you should need) and you should be set.

    Well, I finally got the character built and he works great! Only trouble I had was getting jumped by Lillith while amp'd and being attacked by a pack of those spear rogues, but she was no problem when I came back with antidote potions.

    Uber trist was easy, took down Baal first then fought Meph + Diablo at the same time with no problems using fade prebuff from treachery (forgot to post that) and salvation.

    Lillith is more dangerous than ubertrist for sure.

    Congrats on a successful run, and enjoy your torches ;)

    Re: Uber Setup

    have never tried your setup but if your interested in 30-40second UT clears, and now able to organ run alot faster since Maiden was nerfed with 1.13, try my setup from 1.12

    Helm Guillaumes
    Body CoH
    Belt TGodz
    Gloves Dracs or IAS gloves if using Last Wish (i'd still use Dracs)
    Boots Gores
    Rings Raven / Dwarf (dwarf is purely for fire absorb)
    Ammy Highlords
    Weapon Last Wish PB or Grief PB
    Shield Up'd HoZ
    Prebuff Treachery

    Max Fanat
    Max Zeal
    Max Holy Shield
    Max Sacrifice (Zeal synergy)
    1pnt Salvation
    Remainder Points
    Defiance (HS synergy)
    Smite (I prefere 1 point in smite, with +skills it still only took me 8-13 seconds to kill each of the Ubers)
    Throw em around have fun with it

    dont know if there is a guide with this build out there anywhere but maybe its time I post it

    Re: Uber Setup

    Here's food for thought for the OP:
    You can also drop Zeal and Sacrifice, and instead max Might, Vigor, with the rest into Charge. Might will give you a good passive bonus and Vigor is just all around useful.
    I find that if you're trying to budget Ubers a solid Charge might be more useful, because without a decent amount of AR (I'd say maybe at least 10k), Zeal can be a pain even in the most basic of situations.

    touché, but take note that with max fanat, and what is it? 10 attacks per zeal (havent played smiter since 1.12) you really are not going to have trouble hitting anything..

    edit: i take that back, you may have trouble making contact, but you'll be attacking so fast you wont really notice

    Re: Uber Setup

    Kinky's post is agreeable, up to the point of getting Grief, which solves the AR issue with ITD. Zeal will be, for the vast majority of the time, for normal Monsters which ITD has an effect. For the super uniques that ITD won't work on, you'd probably be smiting them anyway, so lack of ITD only hurts Zeal when it is used on Normal Enemies.

    On a side note, I find Grief to be the most overpowered runeword to exist on a Melee weapon for its Rune costs. 1 HR (LO) and 1 mid-high (Mal) and you have just created yourself a devastating weapon, especially with Phase Blade. It works equally well as a Zeal weapon or a smite weapob

    Grief will add smite damage and is a very nice weapon, much more affordable than Last Wish for the new people..

    I will however say that Last Wish during my timing runs, was found to be alot faster in gathering organs+clearing UT, not by much but it was faster.

    and remember Grief's major damage is hidden, so comparing damage by equipping a Grief and then a Last Wish is useless..
    you must do what I did and do trial runs, aka about 50 Organ/UT runs with each using Fraps to record full runs and bosses/mini-bosses

    I have a friend who teleports to Lilith/Izzy so killing normal monsters isnt an issue. :thumbup:
