Alright well here's what i throw down, been workin for a while because i do Ubers alone.

I do not use torch or anni for any of this because i like a smiter whos ready to handle anything and also available to pick either up.

Helm: Guillames Face (Crushing Blow, Strength, FHR)
Body: CoH (No question ED vs Demons (Baal, Meph, Diablo) and Resistances)
Weapon: Last Wish PB (My only source for life tap, also gives Fade which maxes my resistances WITHOUT torch or anni)
Shield: HoZ (Great Defense, Stats, Skills, all around solid)
Belt: TGods (Thunder Res, STR, VIT)
Boots: Gores (Crushing Blow, Open Wounds, Deadly Strike)
Gloves: Laying of the Hands (Very cheap, 300%damage vs demons (Baal, Meph, Diablo) and 20IAS)
Amulet: Cat's Eye (Dex, IAS, simple)
Ring: Ravenfrost (Dex, Frost resist)
Ring2: Dwarf Star (No reason, just what i have left, could be a better ring there such as BK or Wisp)


I keep a simple 3bo CTA on the switch, nothing special.
This smiter is WAY less than perfect, but can handle all ubers.
To improve him i will eventually Um or Ber the GFace Um or Ber the HoZ, get a better 2nd ring, Up my HoZ, Get a better Last Wish (Mine is borderline the worst 330/60)
I also keep an enigma on the switch for teleporting TO the key ubers.
Occasionally i will die on Uber Meph and to Iron Maiden, or if life tap does not Proc. I basically rely on life tap proccing, which almost always happens.
Not too expensive of a smiter, except for the Last wish.
(PS I have no charms, i like to fit as many Keys/Organs as possible on the character)

I only have 1.8k health and 1k smite.
This guy can get pretty wild...


decent setup assuming your using the 300 dmg to demonds for zeal switch..

thanks for support guys

fort blows as a smiter armor. gives a measly 30 resist, and ed isn't a good source of damage. all smites power comes from crushing blow, so ed is quite useless

alternate build that does well and is cheeper
ga for armour kira helm umed 4os 40+res elite paly shield 4 pdiamond
dracs goblins and 2 os heavans mite with shael shael and dungo use a dwarf a res ring and seraph's.
total build for this is less than 2 hr's value in gear
resistances are always maxed at 90
dont kill as fast but hell i spent very little on it and he kills just fine
upgraded to a shaeled stormlash which increased kill speed but still no expenses like 5 hrs and a mal for last wish alone

i use no pcombs or skiller charms at all as i do not desire to spend the bucks I use this guy for organ runs and to uber no problems I can do solo or with 8 in game

yep it works but the problem with really cheap builds is that they do tend to die a lot which can cause huge problems

2x shaeled heavens light +2 all (60 ias) or shaeled horizons tornado (70ias) works fine too

its good to look for ias over pricy equip, cause the dmg bonus and venom from grief don't add to smite dmg (any1 can confirm this? at least stats doesn't change when i have it)

guillaumes with a ias jewel socket is great

my prefered amu for this is highlords...20 ias and deadly strike..what else could u need?

bk + raven works great

zaka with p-diamon or ias jewel (if u dont need the res)

the real objective here is IAS, cause higher ias = higher life tap casting = always max life

i solo ubers without using cta anymore, i rly didn't need it cause of life tap

other armor you can use is smoke (nef + lum) giving +50 all res 20% fhr and some other stats <- cheap alternative to coh

oh forgot to say, maybe upg goblin toe can be as good or better then gores (33 crushing blow) ...but doesn't have the deadly strike bonus
