    Why strafers can't do uber tristram?

    I don't get it.
    If you put 0 points into D/A/E you'll get an uninterruptable attack at 9/2 speed with faith GMB. With dracs, and verdungos, plus Cat's Eye or Highlords, two ravens, Fortitude, probably Gores for crushing blow and Guillames Face for even more a bowazon should easily be able to do uber tristram. The only problem I see is the lack of resists, which probably could be countered by some charms and fade prebuff. What's the problem then?
    dracs + 9/2 physical attack which is ranged should more or less mean you're invincible beside one hit kills. Also a frozen arrow could provide a way of dealing with those PI minions... those wraith-like ones and those uber-duriel guarding swarms...
    please, explain to me, what's wrong?

    Well, I would say 3 things:

    First, chance to hit. I am not sure how many of your arrows would actually hit the Uber 3.

    Second, too many targets. There are so many minions summoned that your strafe wouldn't hit the Uber 3 enough to be effective.

    Third, Crushing blow is severely limited with ranged attacks.

    Just my thoughts. I have been proved wrong many times before.

    Try it, see how it works.

    I have used my lvl 93 strafer as support on uber runs lately with fairly good results.

    Using windforce with faith merc (850-6500 strafe damage), 17500ar - all neg resists cept for poison. Wearing draculs to basically lifetap everything for friend who is the actual uber killer.

    Does a great job knocking back and killing minions - taps everything in sight quickly -- not sure if i have ever given one of the ubers much more than a nasty sliver though.

    Wouldn't recommend a strafer as primary uberkiller - Maybe you could do it, but i have a feeling it would take a few hours -- probably 50 quivers of arrows or more LOL
