Increasing Hammer Damage? I love my Hammerdin. He is now level 80. However, even though I don't have the best equipment, I do have some okay items. I have maxxed out Blessed Hammer, Blessed Aim, Concentration, and Vigor. I read all about everyone doing 7k to 10k with their hammers, but mine is only 4901-4983. How do I get that higher. I've started saving my points as I level now, since I'm not sure where to put them, past my hammer-build prerequisites. Depending on what I wear I always have 75-90 in resists in Hell (one of my armors gives % boost to max resists), but at 80 still can't solo Baal (or if I do it's about a 40 minute fight). I can walk through Pindleskin in about 30-45 seconds, yet I've never seen anything godly drop off him yet, but have gotten a few good items. Mephisto is pretty easy - the hardest part is getting there (don't have a teleport jewelry piece yet). Andriel is kinda fun, and the Countess is cake. The only thing in the Pits that get me are if there are a bunch of ranged shooters (but I just picked up some 40% w/r boots with 200% defense against missles which should help. Back to my oringinal question - What items should I be getting or what can I do to increase my hammer damage? With items: Strength - 135 Dexterity - 141 Vitality - 222 Energy - 17 Stamina - 365 Life - 1080 Defense - 1331 Mana - 583 Thanks in advance again! This board has been very helpful! OH - and I've gone merc-less up to this point... but would there be a merc that would give me higher hammer damage?
