Hammerdin Playing Help

Okay I was tired of dying with my soceress and I started a Hammerdin.

I followed the Hammerdin guide and am now 74 (in about a week - so not sure if that is fast or slow, but I mostly solo).

Blessed Aim is the only skill I haven't maxed out yet and it will be in the next couple levels.

I've finished Hell (with help) and people talk about their hammers doing 10k damage when mine only do about 1500-1700 each.

I am using it on the right side and right click. Not using an aura with them. Should I be?

How exactly are you working your hammerdin?

You have to be using Concentration just in case you didn't find that out

It adds 4k damage to my 7.5k hammers

How do you get 7.5k hammers?

What should I be collecting?

In hell my resists are all 90.

I have maxed out Blessed Hammer, Vigor, Concentration, and have 19 in Blessed Aim (will be maxed when I hit next level). My hammers at next level will be around 1700-1800 damage - without concentrations added percentage - and I'm not sure how to figure out how much that adds...

My equipment sucks - I know that, but I'm trying mostly to build a MF Hammerdin to help get him better stuff.

So -using Atma's Wail, Wizardspike, a +2 Paladin skills / + resists shield, Ptopaz Shako, Chance guard gloves, Tearhaunch Greaves (+2 to Vigor), and IK belt. Resistances Amulet, MF rings.

I appreciate you responding and hope you can give me this added information.

Thanks again and thanks in advance for more!

I get the 7k hammer by using Concentration it adds about 4-5k to my hammers

You're gear looks pretty solid
The +2 vigor from Tearhaunch WON'T increase hammer damage (synergies only come from points you put it not +skills)
I think you should change belt to Gloom's Trap or Arachnid Mesh if you have either nad try to replace Atma's Wail with ieher Skullder's Ire or a Skin of the Vipermagi

Thanks that helps! I have a couple skins of the vampri mage lying around I'll see what I can do with those.
