    Need critique on my SP Cheesedin build

    Hi everyone, I finally managed to pat my zealot in hell mode and have been tweaking his stats for a revised build that is efficient at 8 player mode. Here is his skill distribution at level 85:

    20 blessed hammer
    20 concentration
    20 vigor
    20 blessed aim
    1 in fana
    1 in fist of the heavens (+prereqs)
    1 holy shield (+prereqs)
    1 redemption
    1 salvation

    I figure once I get some +skills gear, I can have a pretty versatile fighter/caster with blessed hammer, zeal, smite, and FoH.

    What should I put the rest of my skills in? Should everything go into holy shield? Fana? FoH? Smite? Charge? Basically, the most bang for my buck. I'm leaning towards either holy shield or FoH right now.

    I'm planning on using the standard gear, focusing on high resists, 75% fcr and minimal str, high life, a bit of fhr (55% from spirit shield + charms). Thanks!

    You probably are aware that for each 2 points you put into one of the 3 resist skills boosts your maximum by 1. Might be worth considering too.

    I figured there's always T-god's and Waterwalk for that. I've already gathered most of my gear together:

    Fortitude Great Hauberk (aiming for Enigma mage plate)
    Shako/Vamp gaze (aiming for a good 20% fcr helmet)
    Trang's Claws
    T-God's (aiming for Arachnid)
    Gores/Waterwalk
    Spirit Sacred Targe (aiming for HoZ)
    dual fcr rings with resists + mods/ravenfrost
    Seraph's Hymn (aiming for Mara's or crafted amulet)
    Astreon's/HoTo
    CTA + Spirit on switch
    Angelic set jewelry on switch

    I'm a big fan of holy shield. My hammer pally currently is sitting on roughly 30% chance to be hit by most things in hell and a 67% chance to block. Makes for one very sturdy character, although I have never tried the resists auras so I can't give any advice either way on them.

    Until you want to put something in their place too. Its pretty much Holy Shield other wise. Although its kind of pointless without spending up on dex first. You definitely want HoZ though if you're going that road.

    Well, just found out FoH is kinda pointless since everything has so much life. It's fun to zap stuff in normal though...

    Holy shield seems like a good choice for me too, since smite can benefit from it. Replaced the Trang's with LoH since it gives good resists and damage. Throne room is very slow going and I die a lot but it's fun...

    I vote for Resist Lightning. You are a hammerdin, no need to smite things. Let merc take care of immunes.

    Holy Shield only if you are totally against incresing resistances. You can calculate the dex you would save, but with lots of + skills you won't save much at all as the increased chance to block levels out.

    Damaged to demons/undead doesn't work with smite.
