    Doesn't sound that good. Can't see enough fcr(75) in the current build plan. Replace Frostburns with Magefist/TO glove for that extra 20% fcr. Too bad your circlet doesn't have any fcr.

    Also, enigma MP isn't so great for Pally's in general. Sure, it has low str. reqs. but also low def. Are you sure you can't afford something like Dusk/Wyrm enigma (12xx-13xx def)? Holy shield adds a lot of extra def. to every def. point available, remember that!

    Boots should be Sandstorm treks or Waterwalks, some people use Infernostride/Hotspurs as well (CS runners mostly).

    With rings you have many combinations, mostly 2xsoj, 1xsoj 1xbk3, 1xsoj 1xwisp, 1xsoj 1xravenfr etc...

    Also don't forget a CTA on switch, BO really helps.

    You need more fcr. Replace frostburns with magefists. If you can't find a pally circulet with fcr, try to go for a rare or crafted amy with fcr and pally skills. You could also replace one of your rings with a rare fcr ring.

    Your boots are ok if you are short on mana. If not, try getting some eth treks.

    it seems like your on budget gear but can afford some of the important items such as enigma and spider.. if so i highly reccommend you use shako. ive palyed hammerdins all my .10 days and found that fhr isnt all its cracked up to be on a hammerdin that uses charge. also with shako. you'll get that mana boost and even life boost your looking for.. allowing you to use mage fists and hit 75.. if you dont even have 75% fcr your not going to be very competitive.
    if you like to have a lot of mana.. which i do.. mine had over 1k mana using both wiz and hoto. then you can p shappire your shako. other options are shael (if you think you really need fhr) ber/ cham/ jah/ even p ruby.
    Good Luck~

    As of right now I cant afford Sigons. :lol:
    All of my Diablo Currency has been spent on the above items you see, so the pally circ will do for now but im soon to have shako. (I could always steal my sorcs) :uhhuh:

    yeah MUST get to 75% breakpt. put away the spider if u have too. i use a 10 fcr 24 fhr crafted belt. and the dam is not much diff. i think 8-10k dam is good enough. i can get up to 13k with a couple of gcs but i never use them.

    Hi this what i use on my hammerdin!

    Helm:Shako (ptopaz)
    Armor:Archon Enigma around 1370 def i think
    Gloves: Magefist (upped)
    Belt:Arach
    Boots:WT (for mf)
    Rings:2x soj
    Ammy:Maras
    Weapon:Hoto
    Shield:Hoz (p diamond)

    Switch: CTA (6/5/4) + Spirit
    Stash 4 pala combat + vita sc + 7% mf sc.

    With this i have around max resist, 75% fcr and 314 mf. Damage around 13 k.

    Works great for me. Sometimes souls are a pain but i use 1 whisp if i need or teleport from danger! :p

    On my pala I use:
    Helm: Crown of Ages
    Armor: Guardian Angel (Elite, 1432 def, Um'ed)
    Gloves: Chance Guards
    Belt: Arachnid Mesh
    Shield: Herald of Zakarum (pdiamond)
    Boots: War Traveler
    Amulet: Mara's Kalaidoscope
    Rings: Dwarf Star and Raven Frost
    Weapon: Hoto

    I wanted to have as high resists as possible, hench I don't want Enigma.. I have 90 res all, 14k+ def and 8.1k dam. As I can solo baal in hell, I'm happy with the current confics.. (EDIT: No troubles with Souls either..)

    But, forgive my lack of knowledge, can I ask what you mean by "upped"? Decebal, wrote he used a pair of "upped Magefist", but I'm not sure what it is.. Anyone care to elighten me?

    Well I got shako and was kinda bored and killing some bosses on hell and I thought it would be a good idea to swap out the Silkweaves For 45% War Travs and the Magefist for Chance gaurds because all bosses die really fast.
