    I would go like this maybe
    wiz
    perf vipermagi
    crafted belt or perf string
    herald of zak or SS or even lidless
    silkweave
    magefist
    maras
    raven
    soj
    shako


    the problem with your setup is your lacking damage reduction. In order to get that I would use ss or you will have to ber your other gear.

    Yeah I was gonna get a rare ring with some fcr mods. I have a string which is probably what I'm going to use against melee, since I don't have a verdungos. I'm working on getting a shaft as well. So that should give me a little over 50 with shako. I think I'll use vipermagi against spellcasters because it is lighter and allows me to run a bit faster and most pubby spellcasters play defensively. But I use Gaurdian angel right now because of the added defense. What is also a unique/set ammy you would recommend? I cannot afford a maras. I have killed other characters with better gear than me even when I don't use a shako.

    my budget pally build @ lvl 80 does over 7k hammer dmg and wears :
    Wizspike (50fcr)
    guardian angel
    Hoz
    shako
    arachinids belt (20fcr)
    silkweaves
    10 fcr ring
    raven

    i really like this built, and it wasnt expensive at all. although i am aiming for a enigma and hoto by next week. then il begin to stack on sojs.

    Are you guys serious? You think this is cheap?

    Viper
    Peasant
    rare amu and rings
    frost/mage/bloodfist
    spectral shard/suicide branch
    Steelclash/rare shield with pd
    nightsmoke
    rare boots with resists and r/w

    this is cheap, and it works, maybe isnt the best but I've tryed it. On Europe Shako and HoZ are way to expensive for a beginner, these items are not often wanted but most people keep them, thus easy to get and not even close to expensive.
    But if you give awat Zakarums and Shakos on USW&E then I too would go with your eq, but this is what I'd recommend for a beginner.

    shako has gotton more affordable(still pricey for pple begining ladder) but HOZ's are a pain to get ahold of. People want ist's and stuff for them.

    i like geddas set up, cheap and works a treat, could even use rhyme shield for good res block and cannot be frozen.
    lso try shop for a pala weapon with 3 bh and other skills or if your lucky find a white one do quest to get 5 sockets and make honor. cow king boots are cheap and offer 20 dex- beat that for chipped gem boots.

    I personally like wizardspik, good resists, faster caster rate, and mana. I already have a shako but working on getting the HoZ.

    The best budget build for a hammerdin is prob Lore ( Rune helm ), Spectral Shard, Low res Skin, Lidless, 2 SOJs, Waterwalks, magefists, lenyo, and eye of eltich.
