What is the Best Build for SOLO Tristram ?

Hi all. I guess over half of the players who read these threads had done Tristram. I have a Smiter who did Tristram several times. (Like to do more but running for keys is tiresome.) I wonder are there other builds which can do tristram solo more effective ? any suggestion? tx.

For soloing Trist, a smiter is as good as it gets.
For gathering the Keys, any caster that can teleport is capable of doing it quickly. Myself, I use a hammerdin for Key gathering.

i would assume any char with CB and Life Tap could have some chance of doing it... it just going to be hard i agree smite is best

i know u can with a summoner build if you get some urdars and/or balrogs. there's a vid on youtube about somebody from the nec forums (can't remember his name) taking them down pretty quick

Tx EA, Lok and zoo for the input. I also assume Smiter is the most effective Tristram runner. Lately Tristram guides for all kind of build are all over the site. I was under the impression that some of them may outrun Smiter, but guess not yet. Someday we may have a chart for "fastest runner of the month".

I run a vanquisher, combination smite/hammer. Works beautifully. Has all the power of a hammerdin when I put him in casting gear, can run keys like a champ, then I throw a grief, guilla, coh, trang's and dracs on him, take him into tristram, and throw my weight around. A pure smiter can take the ubers themselves faster, but a vanquisher is a do-everything char, thanks to his hammers. Instead of fighting with their minions, toss a couple hammers and keep smiting, watch the minions around you drop.

Is vanquisher one point smite? Or are they like libbys and max smite (libby - charge ) instead of holy shield.... or do you max that since it adds damage as well?

When I saw the clip of a guy doing them with summonner, I'd say that summonner could be the best. Safe and sound..
