    Probably about level 70 or so, tho it will depend on your gear aswell.

    Re: Question about hammerdins

    That is correct. Hammerdins high damage can kill far earlier than they can typically survive. In other words, if you're just starting out (untwinked) your ability to kill will generally be higher than your ability to survive. A Hammerdin should have Holy Shield, so overall defense shouldn't be an issues, it's generally lack of resists in hell mode that get Hammerdins in trouble. It's all about the gear.

    Ive beaten hell at level 65 with cheap gear.

    Tarnhelm
    Dual Spirit(Not even res on the base shield)
    Silks of the victor
    Magefists

    Easily doable.

    Twinked I think the level to be able to effectively do hell can be around level 50-60.

    So 70 should be more than doable granted resists are available.

    Wizardspike would be best:p

    Re: Question about hammerdins

    If you have a level 64 Hammerdin and:

    Have 75 FCR or higher
    Have max resists
    Have your points in Blessed Hammer, it's synergies, and some Holy Shield
    Have max block
    Have Insight on your merc

    Your gear is fine.
