**My Perfect Hammerdin**

OK. So I just went through a painstaking quest to create a Hammerdin and idealize him with the help of a few buds on open b.net. I crafted him to what I thought would be the best possibilities. I'd give you his stats, items, etc. and I want you guys to tell me any recommendations you might have. (He's level 99) So here it is:

Items:

Helm: Harlequin Crest socketed with a Shael (faster hit recovery)

Armor: Enigma--Archon Plate

Boots: Sandstorm Trek

Gloves: Magefist

Weapon: Heart of the Oak

Shield: Herald of Zakarum with a Perfect Diamond (cheaper than an Um)

Rings: Two Stone of Jordans

Amulet: Mara's Kaleidoscope

Belt: Arachnid Mesh

Weapon Switch: The Grandfather with a 40/15 max damage

Charms: 5xCombatSkills w/hp, 4xhp sc, Annihilus Charm

Skills:

Blessed Hammer:42 (Maxed)

Concentration:35 (Maxed)

Blessed Aim:35 (Maxed)

Vigor:35 (Maxed)

Holy Shield:24 (Base: 2 skill points)

Charge:35 (Maxed)

Meditation:16 (Base: 1 skill point)

Redemption:16 (Base: 1 skill point)

Teleport: 14 (from HOTO)

A couple requirements.

Stats:

Strength:209 (Base:73)

Dexterity:141 (Base:104)

Vitality:460 (Base:398)

Energy:42 (Base:15)

HP:2130 (2899 w/ Lvl 4 Oak Sage from HOTO)

Mana:648

Resists: 75 all

Defense: 10994

Chance to block: 75%

Hit Recovery: 40%

Run/Walk: 65%

Magic Find: 149% (easily raisable, e.g.erf Topaz in Shako, War Travs, Chanceguards)

Damage Reduction: 18%

Damage to Mana: 15%

Cast Rate: 80 (enough to hit 75 break point)

Hammer Damage: 13k-13k

Charge Damage(w/Gf): 4916-15k

Attack Rating(w/Gf): 5994

That's just enough strength so that I can use Gf and just enough dexterity to have 75% chance to block and the rest in vitality. My basic strategy is to just teleport in and beat the crap out of everyone with my hammers. Those few tricky strays that manage to avoid them get smashed when switch to the Gf and charge their butts. Works quite well so far. Keep in mind that most of these items are at their best possible mod values (20/20/10 anni for example) so this completely possible but close enough. I haven't thought about a merc yet, probably going to be a Holy Freeze, no telling what equipment though. Tell me what you think. Any recommendations for the whole thing?
