    Help! Why is my lvl 92 hammerdin's damage so low?

    :confused2:

    I've been playing for only six months so I'm still learning some things.
    I followed a guide in the strategy section of this forum on
    how to build a good heavy damage hammerdin. I just found out that my BH damage, which is currently at skill level 44 hammer damage is 3445-3471 is not as high as it should be for my level.

    So what did I do wrong?
    Firstly, I put one point in any prerequisite skill. Then maxed skills in this order:

    Blessed Hammer
    Concentration
    Vigor
    Blessed Aim

    I am in the process of maxing Holy Shield Which is at skill level 35 as of now.

    I have one skill point added to:
    Cleansing
    Meditation
    Redemption
    Defiance

    My gear is:
    hoto
    "cham" shako
    enigma
    magefist
    silkweave (also have war trav)
    arachnid
    "um" hoz
    soj x2
    Mara's

    Inventory:
    4 combat charm
    3 offensive aura charm
    pally torch
    anni

    OK where did I go wrong here? I DID mistakenly put one skill point into fanaticsm but don't know how that would make any difference.
    SO.....
    Why are some players saying they have over 6-10k hammer damamge?

    I may need to start a new build but before I proceed I need a better Ultimate Hammerdin build guide.
    I tell you, I feel sick about messing up my build after spending so much time on him. Is all lost?

    I hope someone can come to the rescue here...lol!
    TY all hope you are having a good Monday! :grin:

    Have you got hammers on left click and concentration on right?

    You didn't do anything wrong. You're looking at the damage of Blessed Hammer alone, by itself. When people quote damage figures like 6-10k (or 14-16k), they're including the effect of the Concentration aura.

    Select Blessed Hammer as your left mouse skill and Concentration as your right mouse skill. Then open the character screen and look at the damage listed there for Blessed Hammer. Don't use the skill tree numbers, since that excludes Concentration's contribution.

    OMG! Here's the part where I feel STUPID.
    I did what you said, and hit the character stats, looked at the damage and........

    IT'S 15K!! Lmaoo

    The old saying is still true.. you learn something new every day.

    I always use conc. aura on right click and BH on left.

    As far as I can tell you can not assign aura skills to the left click side for some reason.

    Wow this is a big relief as I am really attached to my hammerdin and I was planning on hosting and participating in my first ever
    Uber game as soon as I feel I understand the game strategy and rules for team playing.
    Thank you guys for you help!
    :D

    IYMK, I soloed this build for most of the levels and joined games only when I needed help for some of the bosses. I knew I'd get a few snide comments and this is why I hate to ask questions as you most likely will get made fun of by a few who must've never been new to anything b4 in their life eh?
    Must be nice... I just wing this game

    Thanks to those who helped me and didn't sneer at my noobness.

    The reason for the comment is, it would take many dozens of hours of magic finding from an experienced player to get that kind of wealth from scratch, and the question you asked is one of such an elementary nature. It is difficult to reconcile the apparent gap in knowledge.

    My brain hurts >.<

    sigh, must add info so this post won't be spam....
    if you plan on doing uber runs with your paladin, hammers don't do much to ubers and mini ubers, just the minions, use smiter build if soloing ubers

    Level 92? Wow. I still only have two chars over 90 after months and months of playing (too much) and neither is lvl 92.

    If people seem antagonistic: It seems suspicious that you have about ~25-30 hrs of gear, a lvl 92 char, and you've never looked at your char stats screen and seen the 13-14k damage listed their. Most people play for a ton of hours to get anywhere near this kind of gear and most people will look at you and assume you used unethical means to get this kind of gear based on your story, and we don't condone those kinds of actions here.

    I think I can speak for most saying:
    If you did buy the stuff off a site that sells items, then you deserve the implicit disrespect within these posts. If you didn't, and you mfed and traded your rear off, then we're extremely sorry, and you deserve all our respect for being very good at diablo.

    Edit: If you've got a friend who has a smiter, you can run keys and ubers really fast with a hammer/smiter combo. A hammerdin is not a good soloer, but paired up with a good smiter, can make for insanely fast uber runs (and a lot of profit: 4 keysets 4 hr –> 1 unid torch which on wscl sells for hr. Thus, 3 runs gives 1 hr profit, and if you can do this quickly, its a great way to build up great wealth quickly.)

    Sigh.. OK I'll make it so you can reconcile it for what ever reason if it helps you to figure out where I'm coming from. I know you all take this stuff very seriously...lol

    My son was into this game. He's really a great gamer, it just comes naturally for these kids. He had a high level character that he got all this gear with through finding and trades I guess.

    When he got his PS3 he stopped playing this game and I saw it here gathering dust and thought "hey maybe I'll give it a try". ( I bought the darn game for him anyhow)
    I use his hell character as a mule b/c I wanted to make my own.... You know I started playing a lvl 1 pally and found it fun. I stayed out of group play mostly since I wasn't a "pro" (if you ask dumb questions like I did earlier you get made fun of by what I can figure are kids around my son's age..ugh) I soloed my way with this pally that built from one of the guides.
    Lucky me my kid had this gear stashed so I put it to use of course!

    Are we making sense of it now?

    Just playing solo and having fun at it I never seriously paid attention to the damage. Once defeated Hell all is left I figured was to do baal and chaos runs until I heard about Uber and what damage I could do now really MATTERED.
    Lighten up will ya- it's a GAME! :grin:
    I play and it helps me to zone out and forget all the stress around me. That's why I play.
    Have a good one:)

    Tweezle, I reckon you are owed apologies from some people. Unfortunately people take this game ultra seriously and for them any form of cheating in any way is considered taboo. Now that you know how to check your stats I hope you have many hours of fun

    Jus admit it, u stole it from ur kid kekekeke....

    Just kidding! Don't hurt meeeeee!

    It's actually best to start from nothing because it's more fun and educational (ha, who says vid games aren't educa uhhhh something). You'll learn what skills does what and what items help your character more.

    Try posting in the player matchup forum to get similar minded people to help you out.

    Multiplayer Battlenet is a VERY FREAKING harsh environment for newcomers, especially nice ones like yourself; it's full of stress inducing bnet kiddies who are ******************************'s

    Oh, and welcome to Elly's forums.

    *steals pants and wallets*

    Hey no apologies needed. I left myself WIDE open for this when I posted. After one day using a forum have come to the conclusion :

    Don't say stupid crap and if you do be prepared to have very thick skin.

    If u ask a question make sure it's not construed as idiotic.

    PM's must be kept to one or two sentences.

    The majority of members are NOT kids.

    Yea I get it now... and yes I don't like cheaters either. I DO NOT CHEAT!
    The shako and magefists and some of the grand charms I found on my own on runs. Yay!

    No spam which I understand to mean blabbering on about useless stuff like this.

    This is where thie thread ends.

    Thanks to all:))

    Re: Help! Why is my lvl 92 hammerdin's damage so low?

    We were all stupid once. The Newcomer forum seems to be more forgiving than the other ones. I myself, on my first character ever untwinked, threw away a 22magic find ring in Normal act1 because I wanted unique items, not magic ones; a legendary SPF member who had completed two untwinked naked guardians, thought static feld radiated from the monster you clicked on

    A media stereotype, don't listen to it

    It takes a while to get used to the humour on this forum, but it's generally good natured

    I don't think anyone has said this yet, but welcome to the forums:thumbsup:

    It's kinda sad actually. This forums are usually very friendly but now it sounds like jsp or something :shocked:

    All questions are welcome imo.

    Was a lvl 90 for a long time too, I did LOTS of Baal runs to level up to 92. Thought I'd never get there. Baal runs give a whopping amount of points. Once done with all your quests what else is there to do?

    Ty for keyset info.
