    Hoz vs 35Spirit for Hammerdin

    What do people think works best for overall killing power and speed? Basically, how much more valuable is a higher FCR vs +2 more skills and max block?

    Thanks

    How many leet hammerdins do you ever see using spirit? It answers itself really. Plus the hoz just looks better lol.

    Virtually all pvp ones use spirit:smiley:

    Spirit is also nice in pvm although I did use hoz on my previous paladin - it all depends whether you go for 125 or 75 fcr I guess

    spirit in every way.. hoz for switch if you run ubers with gear swap as a hdin.. or put hoz on your smiter... otherwise spirits just plain better... fcr > 50 skills always always... silly hdins 2/3 hammer kill anyway might as well cast them freakin fast :)

    I'd say spirit is better unless you have some *cough* unmentionable gloves or nice fcr rings, 20% ammy and 20% circ, which would give you good fcr. You would also need to find a source from for fhr, which you can get from boots or those tasty 12% fhr pcombat gcs.

    spirit sacred all the way.
    you can get max block without spending single point into dex, you just need +dex gear like rings, amu, wizzy with nice jewel or HoTO etc...
    you need about 135 dex with HoZ and HS, and about 164 @ lvl 95 with spirit sacred targe.

    125 FCR > 75 FCR

    Therefore
    PvP: Spirit > HoZ
    PvM: Spirit > HoZ

    Every good pvp hammerdin uses spirit, and I mean every... The real question should be how many use hoz :shocked:
    Also with holy shield they look exactly the same.

    where would be the best place to find said sacred targe of good resists?

    at the moment i am using HoZ until i can find one, plus it gives me nice resists!

    Well some people do prefer to run with the fcr rings, ammy and circ, mostly because some have ridiculous stats and that HoZ can have massive defense if it is eth and upped(upwards of 800), which helps in melee duels.
