CS/LFury Zon Vs Ubers

Would CS/LFury zons be of any use vs the ubers? I have read how they slaughtered dclone in a few seconds. What chance will they have killing the uber three? Thanks and be sure to vote!

I would guess that it wouldn't be very useful considering how much lightning resist Mephisto has. Not to mention that many of the minions down there are also Lightning immune.

i was maybe thinking something crazy.

infiniti CA on me
CoH
5-5 faceted Perfect Kiras
ravenfrost
dwarf star or wisp
verdungos
maras
tearhaunch greaves or treks
magic +3 jav 20% ias gloves
19,17 zon torch
19,18 annihilus
5 x java GC's (2 w/ life)
4 x 15 res all GC's (2 w/ life)
10 x 20 life sc's

switch maybe a wand with lower resist charges or etheral titans and spirit but probably cta with spirit.

level 37 CS (after battle command) should give 10 bolts I believe for about 4,400 or so damage per (with +5 from facet) = 44,000 per hit.

should be about -140 to enemy light resist. i think my life would be about 2k pre battle orders, 25% dr, 40% chance of crushing blow, and resists would be stacked about 100%. With high dodge and avoide i probably will not miss the shield too much. The real questions are exactly what are the light resist/absorbs of the ubers and can I kill them quickly enough to survive on potions without life tap.

i got just about everything except the maras, gloves and a facet for the kiras but i really would like to know if anyone thinks this will work before put this all together and level the zon. any comments more than welcome.

(was not trying to hijack post. i just think your standard CS/LF will not be able to do any damage to the ubers because their resists are so high)

I beleive you are better off putting the infinity on merc and using a 20/-20 Monarch, since titans will help you out more.

Gogo Smiter! Much cheaper and most likely more effective x10243207230523

merc die in 5 seconds. that's the whole reason i tried to figure out a way to use myself.

smiter will always be better. just wanted to be different.
