Ive been trying to find out why smiters are the best for doing ubers but i cant find out why. The most logical thing ive come up with is because of their stun but then i remembered that barbs have a skill that stuns to. If its the stun im go to make a stun barb.
Please tell me why smiters!!!!:confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:
As can a kicksin. Did it once. It was harder than smiter, which kept it interesting, but not hard enough that I couldn't do it at all
assassin is probably second best to smiter. smite will always be best since it doesn't need attack rating to hit; however, with a good attack rating assassin is nearly as fast and may actually be safer due to crowd control abilities. (there were many times in hardcore that i had to use my assassin to clear ubers when careless smiters had been slain.)
edit: basically any char with a fast attack, good attack rating, lifetap, stacked resists and crushing blow can make short work of them.
that can be any char including a necro or sorc using runeword passion (for zeal).

they'll never see me coming.. life is a sequence of tragedies, inconsistent only by fleeting, elusive moments of pleasure,
serving only to ensure absolute vulnerability to the pain of their inevitable absence.
Yea. My char isn't even a smiter. It's a zealot.. which already has 1 pt in smite because it's a pre-req to Holy Shield. Make a Black runeword out of a Scourge, get a life tap dagger or wand from Malah in Act 5 and add some other gear for more CB and resists. Dracs are an almost must. I wouldn't suggest doing it without dracs. A renewed source of lifetap is pretty important. Other cheap gear are Goblin Toe boots for CB, rings with resists or dwarf star and raven frost for fire and cold absorb, a rare shield with resists, +2 pally skills ammy with resists, Tgods belt for light absorb, Guillames Face for CB, any life, psn dmg, resist, or ar sc's you can find. My Pally uses a Shaftstop only 'cause he already downs ubers perfectly fine without anything better. And I'm using all the gear mentioned above. 'Cept for a hoz and astreon's iron ward. But originally he was using the gear above.
Guess I should mention his skill tree.
Max Fanatisicm and 1pt pre-reqs
Max Holy Shield and 1pt pre-reqs
Required Level: 77
Strength enough for Gear
Dex enough for max block (holy shield will minimize the need)
