A Very Simple Attack Pattern: in open spaces.

Since most monsters will actually come to you to attack simply put up a field of hammers. As they get close enough to you to be a concern step back and to the left/right some*. Then let loose some more hammers. Rinse/Repeat
* You step back left or right so that you change the orientation of the monsters to you. This means that 1 they may wander into your existing hammer field, 2 your next hammer field will "fill" the gaps in your existing 1 as it were.

A Very Simple Attack Patter: in closed spaces.

Find an open space.

A Very Simple Attack Pattern: Bosses
Holy Shield, stand to the left and down a bit from your intended victim. Spam hammers, drink potions until intended victim is dead.

I recently started playing hammerdin just for fun to see how it goes. I am playing hardcore btw. So any mistake could cost me alot :). So I have like lvl74 pala atm, stats are ~100 str, 90 dex, 340+ vita, base energy. Using hoz, GA, peasant, suicide branch, maras, verdungo belt, raven/manald, frosts and few skillers and anni in inventry. And i am really worried how my pala will fare.. I think i am gonna R.I.P him some time.. It looks that monsters hit paladins more hard than my amazon :) My damage is ok, havent maxed last synergy yet, ~6.5k. But damn, it is hard to keep the distance, i guess paladins should have alot more DR to survive.. Even mages with maxed res seems to do quite alot damage(i guess with bone spirits).. i was in few situations than life droped for less than 1/3...
So my point is hmm, how to keep hammerdin alive :) I guess i have to work on my merc atm.. i am lvling act1 merc just for fun, did not want to go with regular act2 merc everyone is having.. so that might be the problem.
