    looking for some suggestions

    Hey guys I have a lvl 75 hammerdin, doing about 4k dam with best equiptment, but ive seem to have hit a wall as far as getting better gear. I cant mf in hell cause I need better gear and I dont find better gear in NM. I am used to playing with a friend which makes it easier to get gear. So I guess Im looking for suggestions on cheap but effective gear, and just general strategies on getting better gear alone. I appreciate the ideas.
    Ben

    Decent Hell armor would be a Griswold's w/ 3 PTopazes for MF

    A Spirit Sword and Shield make great mid level hammerdin gear, and aren't too hard to make or come across. The Sword in any 4 socket one with low str/dex requirements, and the Shield in any paladin-only shield with nice resists and block%. That's +4 skills, 110% FHR (awesome) and 50%-70% FCR, getting you to the 48% breakpoint easily.

    Lore (Ort+Sol) helm is another mid level wonder, +1 all skills, 30% lightning resist and 7 PDR. Peasant Crown is just as good.

    Magefists and Trang-Oul's gloves are the only 2 gloves you want to think about using. Each has it's pros and cons. Combined with the Spirit sword/shield can get you ro 75% FCR, if the Spirits' FCR add to above 55%. Faster casting will increase your killing speed by quite a bit.

    Spirit Shroud, Vipermagi, Que-hegan's wisdom, Skullder's Ire, Guardian Angel all make decent armours. Each of those grants you +1 skills.

    If you're lacking in resists, then Smoke (Nef+Lum) armour has 50 resist all, 10 energy among other things.

    Any amulet found or gambled with +1-2 Paladin or Combat skills and other mods is good.

    I like the 'Black' runeword.

    Thul+Io+Nef I believe.

    40% chance of crushing blow- put it in a knout if possible for the speed.

    I like to combine that runeword with and upgraded rattlecage armor (for it's chance for crushing blow)-you could have Larzuk add a socket for a P'topaz for MF if you wanted.

    I hit the 'wall' in hell, too, and adding the crushing blow got me through.

    Smite bosses, duh ;)

    Spirit Shield is probably going to be the best and most affordable item for you. Make sure to try and find a decent shield with good blocking and resists to make the runeword.
