In this section of the guide i will introduce what skills and stats need to be used to reach the highest level of efficiency.
Max smite! This is your main attack and your very good friend.
Max holy shield! This also is your friend helping you greatly to get holy sheidl and a massive damage booster.
Max fanitism! Speed + damage. Key essentials for this build
Now after this your build is obviously done at quite an early level. Personally I would go with...
Maxing defiance! For extra defence and if you do decide to attempt to duel with this guy gives you more defence to help you handle melee characters better.
You may be saying why not salvation? The reason is we are going to use treachory to get fade before we attempt ubers. With this you can completely negate mephs conviction and then some!
Strength: Enough to use gear. Your highest item will be gaurdian angel which comes in at 118 strength.
Dex: If you go with silence phase blade your gonna have massive dex. So try to put just enough to use it. If you have to go black use just enough to get max block.
Vitality (aka life): As much as you possibly can.
Energy (aka mana): none. Your melee so you do not require alot of mana. Base is fine here.
In this section i will reccomend you the items that i think fit this build best on a low budget. If there is alot of uproar i can always add a middle class and high class gear section.
Helmet: Kiras gaurdian. This is a fairly cheap helmet on both nonladder and ladder.
Choice #2: Guillames. Nice mods. Great helm for a pvm smiter.
Choice #3: Vampire gaze- Massive dr. Its a shame ll doesnt work.
Armor: Guardian angel templar coat. Also cheap on both nonladder and ladder. Gives extra block and sexy resists.
To go with this have in your stash a treachory runeword armor. Easily made runeword and gives you fade. Fade = resist and dr. Frined :)
Choice #2: Shaftstop mesh armor. Life dr decent defence.
Weapon: Silence phase blade is your best bet. Skills good damage and speed.
Choice #2: Storm lash. Great smiting mods. If you cant afford silence get this. Black if the last alternative
Choice #3: Black runeword
choice #4 : Heavens light
Shield: Herald of zakarum shield. This is by far one of the better smiter shield and pretty cheap also.
Choice #2: Alma negra. Decent smite damage and mods.
Choice #3: Dragon scale. Very rare shield but seen to be pretty crappy. Very cheap
Choice #4: This next choice is ladder only! Any pally spirit will do. nice fhr (not that important) skills and resists.
Choice #5: Gris shield
Gloves: This is the most important piece of gear!!!!!!
Draculs grasp gloves!!!! Gives life tap which keeps you alive. Also gives decent strength and open wound mods.
If you cannot afford draculs im sorry this build just isnt going to work.
Belt: If you can afford this verdungoes is a really nice friend. Vitality, damge reduction.
Choice #2: String of ears. Damage reduction a few other mods...
Choice #3: Noferastus also works here.
Choice #4: Thunder gods vigor. Great mods and all around good belt.
Boots: Gore riders. Great mods decent defence.
Choice #2: Aldurs. Life resists second best choice here
Choice #3: Sanders folly
Choice #4 Just any boots with resistances will do.
Amulet: If you get silence phase blade use catseye amulet.
If you use black try to get highlords.
Other choices: Eye of elitch. Rising sun. Any old amulet with + pally skills or resistances.
Rings: Raven frost. Very cheap ring and can be easily mfed. Dex for silence and frozen mod. Use with both black or silence.
If you can get 2x raven frosts that would be great. Other alternatives are a low % bul kathos ring.
Other choices: Any old ring with resistances works here.
If you can afford get torch and a anni. If you cannot after killing ubers a few times hopefully you'll find a pally torch! Basically fill the inventory with resist charms or lifer charms. + to stat charms also work quite nicely.
Time to kill ubers
Step one: Have all 3 of your key sets. Terror,hate,destruction. Put one set in cube and press. You will get a portal go find either uber izaul, duriel, or lillith. Kill them get organ put in stash. STAY IN THE GAME!! Put the second set in your cube kill boss and get organ put in stash. Stay in the same game. Put in last key set kill the boss get organ. Now you should have a eye,brain, and horn.
Step two: With the organs in your cube. Walk to your inventory put on treachory and go to act 1 cold plains. Let the monsters hit you until your paladin looks ghostly.
Step three: Come back to act 5 and heal. Press transmute in cube and tada you have a ubers portal. Go in walk to the left and go around back. Walk in between the to furthest back houses then run bak really fast. If done correctly you should if brought only one of the ubers with you. Now run at him and start smiting. Your life tap should kick in then its just a waiting game.
If your fade runs out during any time that your not actively smiting. Go repeat the second step and get another fade.
Step four: After you have owned the first uber run in between the house and try to lure out another single boss. Own him and then repeat this steap to the las remaing boss.
Step five: After you have killed ubers there will be sohs and a torch laying on the ground. Pick them up go to cain. Id torch and be proud.
If you do make this character you will be very suprised at its abilities. If there is an uproar for screen shots to go with the steps i will gladly add them. If there is uproar to go with pvp i will nce again gladly add them, but i do warn you that this character may not do very well in pvp. If you do take this into a duel game and get killed several times don not let it kill your morale. This character is made for pvm purposes.
Once again im open to all comments and will answer all questions to my best ability.
Edit: Uber screen shots coming soon to go with the steps!!!
