For a hammerdin i would use a defiance merc or holyfreeze merc!

Defiance boosts defense and if you play ladder put insight on him (mana regeneration)

A third option might be prayer merc (life regeneration) + insight polearm (mana regenaration).

Duriels Shell
Set Winged Helm
Set Colo Blade

thanks for the quick and usefull replies....


i was thinking of a mega damage merc (for fun, and to take advantage of the concentration)
thats why i thought of the 2 merc types. (combined with concentration)

for a barb merc which is better doombringer or flamebellow (killing power and survivability)

and again thanks.

i'll save this thread to my hard drive.

edit: oh and regretably i play sp so no super runewords for me. (how i wish they were available on single player!

Well between doombringer and flamebellow i'd go with doomy cos it has ctc weaken curse which causes monsters to do less damage *and* adds 20% more life to barb merc + inbuild leech:D It is also a base -10 sword (champion sword) where as Flamebellow is base 0 (balrog) Hmm i think Crescent Moon r/w (Shael-Um-Tir) is availabe in SP but i suggest you consult the SP forum (i dun play SP) about that and the statistics forum regarding ias and frame per attack (fpa) rates on barb mercs and ias needed on different base weapon speed swords for optimim results :D

if you search the single player forum you can find a mod to add the newest runwords.
