    Extra PvM Hammerdin skill points?

    So I'm level 86, and my skill build is really generic:

    20 BA
    20 Vigor
    20 BH
    20 Concetration
    1 Redemption (First char, useful while farming with non-uber gear).
    ~10 in Holy Shield

    I'll probably level this guy up to at least 90... any suggestions on the last four points? Worth trying to get smiter gear and going 1 point smite / 1 point fanaticism / 1 point salvation, or should I just put the rest in holy shield? I figure I prolly won't uber, I'm more likely to farm and sell keysets to trade for torches, etc.

    Am I forgetting anything else?

    Thanks.

    1 in salvation for sure. It will be handy if you do ever uber, or if you face convict soul packs. Fanaticism is probably not important if you are using a fast weapon for smiting. (like grief)

    More defense is always nice when you just stand there and toss hammers. Less time running, more time attacking, more damage dealt. Granted it's not a huge defense per point investment but there aren't really other options. You probably won't really want to smite with that character although you probably could to some extent (but then why did you make a hammerdin in the firstplace?)
