I have noticed that a lot of people on d2jsp make a Paladin purely for Ubers. In my opinion this is a total waste of FG because your character is so limited. Welp, my solution to the problem is the MFdin/ Uber Smiter Build!
Keep in mind, I bot with the D2nt Bot and also like to Uber with the keys my bot finds.

Why this character is good: With a couple simple item changes you can turn your MFdin into a smiter which can easily farm organs and destroys uber trist, this character can also hunt keys and teli str8 to uber bosses because he is a hammerdin.

Skills: First and for most this Pali is a hammerdin, with very limited smite abilities.

Max- Vigor
Max- Blessed Aim
Max- Concentration
Max- Hammers
Max (or put as many points as you can)- Holy Shield
1 point- Smite
1 point- Fanatasism (make sure you do this)

(the rest of your skills go into prereq's for main skills)

Stats: What you would use on an Hdin

Str- None (you shouldnt need it with a mp nigma and charms)
Dex- Enough for Max Block at around lvl 90, usually 60-70 points depending on charms
Vit- All Remaining points after MaxBlock
Enrg- None

Items: The idea is to keep the Paladin an MF Pali but to also provide enough skills to max your level 1 smite damage.

Helm: Shako (isted or ber'd, ist is better because you can also use this character as a mfer)
Ammy: Maras (need the res's for uber trist)
Weapons: Primary: Hoto/ On Switch: Cta, Last Wish PB<- Very Important!
Shields: Primary: HoZ (isted for mf)/ On Switch: Pali BO Spirit
Armor: Mage Plate Enigma
Gloves: 40% Mf Chancies (remember its a mfer)
Boots: 50% War Travs (remember its a mfer)
Rings: 2x Bk Rings, 20 dex rfrost so you can use Last Wish
Belt: Spider Sash

Stash:
Ptorch
Anni
10x 7MF sc's
Gheeds

Merc Gear:
Ral'd Andys
Ebug Fort
High Insight

How to use this character for ubers: Keep your primary Hoto and Hoz as your first items and hammer skill set. Make your secondary weapon and shield CTA and Pali Bo spirit, with your secondary weapon attack as smite. Go into uber trist, Cast bo's with your cta then replace the cta with a Last Wish PB and make your secondary aura Fanatasism. Go stand in the fire in uber trist for 20 seconds or so, so you can cast fade with your Last Wish. Once fade is activated, be careful and kill mephi first, then complete uber trist.

Last Wish is absolutly essential for this build because #1 You need fade to max your resists and also give you a good amount of damage reduction #2 the 60-70% crushing blow is what you rely on when smiting ubers because that is what kills them #3 Life Tap, Last Wish has a high chance to cast the highest level life tap of any item in the game and is essential for ubers because you will rarely lose any life when it is activated.

At Level 92 you should have: Maxed Hammers and its synergies include concentration, you will do 13K-13K Hammer Damage. Level 36 Holy Shield (which is big for your smite damage). Level 22 smite(with only 1 point put into it). Level 22 fant(with only one point into it). 3K+ Life w/ bo's 500+ Mana w/ bo's and max block.

Hope you find this build productive, I sure do :)

good guide to make a cheap 2-in-1 character

however, one thing is missing:
ias

you will need 8 ias (with phase blade and lvl 22 fana) to have max ias
i would suggest having cheap ias gloves in stash, and use them when smiting (bloodfists will work as well, and have fhr and life as well)

the max damage you can have w/o pcombs with hoto and hoz is 13K-13K hammer dmg no matter what level you are. so not this.

If u want a little more bang for ur buck from smiting and are willing to sacrifice a chunk of dmg on ur hammers, there is another way to do it. Give ur merc Pride and dump the skill points from concentrate into Smite. You will still get over 5k with hammers which is more than enuf 2 kill minions and u can switch to smite 4 taking care of bosses and ubers. I have tried this build and it is very effective and extremely easy to play.

I didn't realize u used it for botting, i figured it was char u played yourself. My main bot is about as boring as it gets. Any fun builds i have are to play myself.
