    Character Builds and Gear for Tristram

    I need to make a character to kill trist, as none of mine are strong enough for even lilith. I recently got a couple hr's from trading keys(lol) so i might be able to get some better gear now. I would really like to know what other people are using, and I also think it will help people to see what others have used to win in tristram.

    Thanks

    i heard smiters are doing great. as long as you got exile, life tap gets you crazy life leech.

    i had to kill meph, i killed baal and diablo with friend, but meph was too hard. we called on for help and a smiter came and killed it all by himself, with two other peeps in game. he pwnd him, totaly. only 2k dmg, but man it doest the job. i'd suggest smiters for tristram.

    The best build for Tristram is either a zealot or a smiter IMO. You may also want to try a barb. Look in the barbarian and paladin guide threads 4 these builds.

    Pougee's smiter/zealot DClone killer build is for the most part perfect.

    My barb owned this (life tap, pvm and cb are very useful).

    my zeal/smite pally doesn't have a exile and he killed the ubers 2 times and he will kill again when me and my friend get another key. all you need is dracs. took meph all by my self both times. smite him and the lifetap will cast...o yes it will cast :thumbsup: . i was using a hoz, non-upped.

    yeah, what i meant by "as long as you got exile" is that life tap is important, if not essential for ubers. since dracs got life tap, its the same thing. exile only makes it pop more often.
    make sure you got crushin blow too, itll be really useful
    never forget tho : never without a rubber.

    Just get a nec to cast it for you. For boot, you get 30+ distractions for mephy.

    summon necros'll get pwned by meph and baal
    conviction + fire nova + charged bolts = no more summons left.

    and keep the dead corpses for redemption or somthing
    maybe Grim Ward from barb would be nice for Minions to run away from you.
    yeah... should try this.

    Wait, did this thread said solo meph? It would be great for a duo, I mean.

    i know its for a duo, but your distraction wont last long... the idea of a necro doing lifetap is good, but not necessary. drac's or exile's do the job. if you absolutely want a necro, i would aim for poison nova/lower resist necro.
    it gets poison immunes monsters to like 80% resists, and you can manage to get 5k nova, 40k psn explosion
    bone necros are useless cuz of pit lords, immuned to everything except magic.
