    I'm getting ready to do Ubers for the first time (Nilathak needs to drop me freaking keys already). I have a lvl 90 pally and have got all my gear together (Grief PB, fort/CoH (recommendations?), gris shield, guillames, dracul's, gores, t-gods, ravenfrost, dwarf star, maras)

    Anyway, I was wondering how the mechanics of this work? I'm currently spec'd hammerdin and will respect to smite once I am ready to go through. However, do I respect after I kill uber andy/duriel/izual or do I go smite on them too? It looks like there's a lot of extra monsters around them that need to be wiped up too so should I just keep hammerdin spec for this? There's lots of guides on killing them in Tristram, but not much info on what to do to get passed andy/duriel/izual.

    Thanks! I'm excited to try out Ubers for the first time!

    Get a point in zeal to fight your way through to izual/andy.
    Having enigma also helps alot, especially if you just want to get to them fast.

    a good cta could be very helpful, and a lifetap wand/exile. Dont trust draculs to proc LT during the first few hits!! ;)

    Ah yes I forgot to mention that I do have a 6bo CTA, and a lifetap wand so I'm good there.

    Should I go with CoH or Fort? I'm thinking CoH for the extra resists.

    If you badly need the resists, then use CoH.

    I use forti, but Ive also got maxed lightres. And 65+ Fres with conviction on me.

    Im not sure, but they all hit harder than other monsters. My point is that without leech, youll have a harder time.

    I think the main problem is their insane health regeneration and high health bulbs.

    Melee fighters have the advantage of "deadly strike", "open wounds" and "crushing blow" over casters,
    casters can only rely on high amounts of damage, but with 75 to 95% resistances and high health...

    They drop the hellfire torch, so if you get a good pally or sorc one, it can be really worth it!

    but wouldn't the catch be that you need to already have a pretty good hellfire torch on you to be able to survive them, so you wouldn't be able to pick it up anyways? I guess the only way is to have friends to help or multiple d2 keys

    Apparently the torch isn't required to do them. Just gotta load up with some resist small charms.

    So, I have geared up and changed builds, but when I place the keys in the cube to transmute them, my dude says "I cant use this yet"

    Anyone know why this is happening?

    N/ figured it out and ended up with a 20/19 dtorch. Too bad it was druid :(
