I have been making more preparations towards the quest. Ashens dropped
a few keys my way and my pally is now level 79 and moving towards a
bigger build. He has a Kingslayer and maxed fanaticism and concentrate.
Zeal is in good shape and the sacrifice synergy has boosted damage. My
zon is kicking ass and my wife should be able to caryy her well on the
journey.

The paly merc has Duress and an eth Obediance. More presents from
Ashens (Um and weapon). I'm trying to get a Guillaimes on him. I just
bought a wand with level 5 life tap which I am sure will come in handy.
The pally merc is Might. What is your merc's aura. If it is Might I can
change mine. The merc kicks ass and I am hoping to keep him alive at
the same time I am zealing away with you.

The zon's merc has a nice Insight and will be wearing a Delerium during
the battle. Our resists are in awesome shape. The zon merc has
defiance. Hopefully your merc is not defiance also. When my pally has
moved ahead further I will have to have my wife run the zon with him a
few times so we get a good pattern of play down before tackling the big
boys.

When we face mepf I guess you will have the salvation on. Tell me if I
should go with fanat or conviction during that battle. Something tells
me you will want fanat which my merc loves. I forget which one you are
gonna use during the other battles, but I will turn on the one you are
not turning on.

When I get my wife to go hunting for the body parts I'll let you know.
We'll probably have to set aside two sessions - one for the lessers and
one for the majors.

I'll keep you posted.

> Nice. A shame that PMH does n't work with the U3.

Hi Misfit,

I suppose that "PMH" stands for Prevent Monster Heal...

If so, i think that it is actually working with Uber Trio. At my last
meeting with those party animals, i had to go back to town a few times
to ...refresh.
Going back to battle, their life line were at the same point they were
when i left. So, my conclusion was that my PMH was effective!

If not, sorry for my useless interference !

Two remarks here:

First, according to the updated Arreat Summit, Ueber Mephisto's Conviction
aura reduces your resistances with 176:

http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/monsters/act5-ubermeph...

So be sure to bring some extra res-all with you to be on the safe side.

Secondly, I read here a claim a few weeks/months ago, that two Conviction
auras cannot co-exist together, so that perhaps another option to counter
Ueber-Mephisto's Conviction aura, was to bring in a Paladin with a higher
level Conciction aura. However, this same Arreat Summit says a Paladin's
Conviction aura is capped at -150%, which means it will always be
lower/less powerfull than Ueber-Mephisto's Conviction aura.

Also, if the overlapping story is true, the Paladin's Convictin aura will
never be active, because it's overruled. Of course, it will probably
become viable/useful again after you have disposed of Ueber-Mephisto...

If someone on Europe SC Non-Ladder is ever going to create the portal to
the Uebers I'd really, really like to be able to join in, to see how my
ex-Ladder builds fare there, and/or how the general 'mayhem' looks like,
to prepare me for when I enter it on the (new) ladder...

Regards,

Patrick.

Oh my! Good to know about the potential stair trap. Okay we try in one
fell swoop then.

I'd be glad to borrow the Shaftstop if you have one. The Duress is only
an extra 15% CB anyways. With Fanat and an Obediance I think he will do
fine and that is a good idea on your part. If i get a Guillames Face
before then should I pop that on his cranium?

I'll tell Taz that the OKs are hers all the way. Should I hold off on
Zealing until it is clear that the OKs in our area are done? Now for
Izzy's place, should I turn on Conviction there, or will our physical
damage with Fanat be enough for the pit Lords - I imagine that fanat
will still be better provided Taz can take out the OKs. Buf if need be
I can pop the conviction on, as her the LF with her insighted merc will
dish out a lot damage. Let me know.

I have the stats on Lilith and her crew. I'll let you know in a later
post what her cohorts are dishing out and what we can expect. My
understanding is that she can be tough,afterall she is an uber, but the
right crew will knock her socks off and we have the crew. My guess is
that the mercs and valk will be taking a lot of poison damage and will
need to be recast and rejuved to keep them pounding away. Taz has to
keep her merc up so that his insight is working for her. That zon of
mine seems to have a ninfinite supply of mana as long as he stays alive
and the LF just never ends. The LF will be small compared to the CB
that we are dishing out but it will add up especially when we get them
down to less than 30 K life.

I am glad we are talking about this first. I am getting a good picture
in my mind of what I have to do and what we have to do as a team. I
really appreciate this Misfit buddy.

Okay thanks,

I have a Tal's Head I can put on him.

I thought the Life Tap is supposed to help, but if more is needed, then
so be it.

I'm suppsoed to be heading to EUS this Sunday to take on tristram with
Hmmm. So I will not be totally green when we get together.
