Pure Hammerdin:

Hammerdin for pvp are essentially the same as pvm, only you might want to spend more on charms and the like for extra life/res which will give more survivability.

This may not be the BEST way to build one. But, here's how I'd do it (actually i wouldn't build a pure hdin, I'd build a liberator, which is what i did =]).

Skills-
20 Hammer
20 Concentration
20 Blessed Aim
20 Vigor
1 pt in Pre-req's
1 pt in Holy Shield
1 pt in Meditation
1 pt in Salvation (optional - some people like to have it)

From here you have options. You can:
Add to Holy Shield for def/less dex to max block
Add to Prayer for life regen from Meditation
Add to Resist Lightning Aura for the passive max res

Stats :
Strength - Enough to wear gear (factor in all bonuses, ie torch/anni enigma)
Dex - Enough for max block with holy sheild on (remember to cast BC 1st fo better Holy shield) or none if you don't want block
Vitality - Rest
Energy - None

Gear
The goal is 125fcr, max resists (after anya bug) minimum 9k hammer dmg and high dr.

Helm
CoA - 2sockets - berber - gives dr, fhr skill and res
Shako - life/mana, dr, 2skills - lets you play base str
Circlet - 2pally skills, 20 fcr, res, life w/e - socket with shael/ber/um/jah - your choice

Ammy
Mara
Rare/crafted - 2pally 10+fcr str/dex/res/life, etc

Armor
Enigma - most use a mage plate/dusk

Weapon
Hoto
wizspike - if you're on a budget
Grief - keep in stash to charge/smite bowzon's etc

Shield
Spirit - in a Pally shield (preferably sacred targe/rondache) with 40+ base res. Reroll it until you get 35fcr

Gloves
trangs
Magefist
bloodfist - if you get 125fcr w/o needing the fcr from gloves

Belt
Spider

Rings
Ravenfrost and
BK/SoJ/stats ring with life/res/wisp/dwarf, etc

Boots
Rares with frw/fhr/stats/tri resists
Waterwalks

Charms
2-4 pcombats - enough to maintain 9-10k hammer dmg
rest - sc's with life/mana and life/res
Torch/anni
