    I'd suggest 1 in redemption just so you don't ever have mana troubles. Ditto for using sojs in the place of bks.

    And look for combat charms!

    I've been wondering about the best merc for my Hammerdin. I can see how Holy Freeze would be good in slowing down mobs so you can get close to em and hammer em, but does this make it the best merc? Do hammers benefit from a might merc? I assume they dont but I'm not totally sure. And, if they do, is it worthwhile? Or would thorns be of any use? I doubt it, but hey, cant hurt to ask.

    Thanks

    i dont think that hammers get more dmg from might, and your merc will get your concentration aura boosting his attacks quite a bit, holy freeze will slow them down though which is of great advantage to you..

    hammers do not get extra dmg from might. It only gets a dmg boost from concentration. Act2 nm combat merc is the best because of the holy freeze aura which slows down enemies so you can hit them easier.

    Try looking at the excellent hammerdin guide in the guide sticky at the top of this forum.

    Man if only Blizz let Lower Resist work like in .09 by lowering magical resists then my bone/summon necro and my mate's hammerdin would be laughing our heads off tag teaming and item running in hell :p Or if they had facets with +5%magical dmg skill/-5%magical resists but no......hehe
