First of all, lvl up a bit and max all synergies.
Get yourself some low anni+torch.
That should get you into the 9-10k range I suppose.
Th get more, get few (3-4) paladin combat skillers, +2 pala ammy (or mara)

the highest damage setup will be (not good at all because it's only focus on the max possible damage)
helm: +2 skill helm 20fcr
ammy: +2 skill ammy 20fcr
weapon: +2 skill, +3 conc, +3 hammer scepter 20fcr
armor: +2 skill armor
shield: HOZ (+2skill, +2 combat skill)
glove: I can't mention here (i am on uswest, they have a special glove in that realm ;P)
rings: 2x soj
belt: spider (+1 skill)
charms: anni (+1skill), torch (+3 skill), 9x pcombat gc
additional: Battle command (+1skill), shine (+2skill)

which makes it:
20(base bless hammer)+2+2+5+2+4+2+1+1+3+9+1+2= level 54 blessed hammer

20(base conc aura)+2+2+5+2+2+2+1+1+3+1+2= level 43 conc
which gives 19500 hammer damage with conc on.

If you have a friend you can focus on highest possible hammer level for your self and have a friend that focus on conc aura for you.

You focus on the highest possible level of blessed hammer:
helm: +3 comb skill helm with 20fcr
ammy: +2 pally skill ammy with 15+ fcr (for max damage use +3 comb skill ammy but you wont be able to reach 125% fcr)
weapon: +3 skill, +3 hammer scepter 20fcr
armor: +2 skill armor
shield: HOZ (+2skill, +2 combat skill)
glove: I can't mention here (i am on uswest, they have a special glove in that realm ;P)
rings: 2x soj
belt: spider (+1 skill)
charms: anni (+1skill), torch (+3 skill), 9x pcombat gc
additional: Battle command (+1skill), shine (+2skill)

which makes it:
20 (base level of hammer)+3+3(we are talking about max screen damage)+6+2+4+2+1+1+3+9+1+2= level 57 blessed hammer



Your friend which focus on conc aura it will be:
helm: +3 off. aura helm.
ammy: +3 off. aura ammy.
weapon: +3 off. aura, +3 conc. scepter
armor: +2 skill armor
shield: +3 off. aura shield
rings: 2x sojs
belt: spider
charms: anni, torch, 9 off. aura gcs
additional: Battle command, skills shine

which makes it:
20+3+3+6+2+3+2+1+1+3+9+1+2= level 56 conc aura

level 57 blessed hammer combine with your friend's level 56 conc aura
4659x 5.425= 25275 hammer damage ;P

If you are reaching 125%fcr (aka use a +2skill ammy with 15%+ fcr) which will make a level 56 blessed hammer combine with your friend's level 56 conc aura
4567x 5.425= 24776 hammer damage


If anyone can get a higher damage or a flaw in my calculation, please post it

Why do i think that skills are capped at lvl40(20 naked, 20 from items)? Has this changed recently or what? Atleast in 1.10 i had my hammerdin's blessed hammer at 40 and couldn't get past it with skillers.

and no my synergies are not maxed yet... still got to get blessed aim maxed.. :p, then will have over 12k dmg i presume

24-25k hammers would be hilarious in duels if you can pull it off, 1 hammer kills to any char with out 4500 life +

Re: Best build 4 hammerdin 4 most dmg?

My hammerdin (level 86) does 13k, here's his gear:

Shako (cham'd)
Enigma (Mage Plate)
HotO (39%)
Up'd Um'd HoZ
Up'd once Magefists
Arach
2 SoJs
War Travs
11/19 PTorch
Low(ish) Anni
20 Mara's

No pcombs yet, but I may get a couple eventually. There's no point going for absolute max damage, because then you're sacrificing resists and life for damage, which isn't worth it in the end. I'd rather have 13k damage than 15k without maxed resists.

It all comes down to the balance of living and killing power. In my opinion though, living > killing
