    Holy Freeze actaully works against you. Try defiance. I'll assume you read the Hammerdin Guides.

    Anyhow holy freeze works agaisnt you because when your a hammerding you ahve a certain area of effect. Holy freeze sometimes makes it so taht mosnters come at you 1 by 1. That may seem like a good idea at first glance but monsters are so randomly spawned now taht you cant afford to stand stilla t times. What I mean is 10 melee 10 range.

    Say the melee rush you 2 at a time because your holy freezing them. This requires you to stop and hammer. And wait while the rangers pick you off

    Say the 10 melee rush you at once, then your first hamemrs will hit all and you can move on to the range faster.

    Also, ironically with a good Hammerdin setup you'll get 11k+ dfense which means they miss you alot. The same goes with your merc meaning he'll be safe and survive mlonger than a holy freeze merc ever will.

    My merc has 14k defense currently while I ahve only 13k. I ahrdly get hit and with holy shield on most hits are blocked so its very good to go defiance.

    Toasty has some good advice there, but it all depends on play style.


    Personally I use a might merc using a doom cryptic giving him holy freeze, but for the sake of single player advice we'll just assume he is a holy freeze merc. With all the monsters frozen I am moving around a lot. I don't like to stand in one place so I throw out 5 hamers or so then move a couple paces and send 5 more. this takes but a few seconds and since the ranged attackers are shooting slowly I have no problems avoiding their shots. For the most part I send up a couple hammers then run straight to the range monsters and hit them first. the Melee monsters being frozen are slow to react and so I can kill the range guys first then turn around.

    If you are lucky enough to get your hands on an enigma then the teleport accentuates this style of play. but it works well without teleport.

    Just wanted to show that it all depends on play style.

    Have fun
    SPAK
