I'd say a hammerdin as well. A untwinked smiter is going to have alot of problems during gameplay. You might want to think about what kind of gear your going to have access to while your playing through. It would be fairly easy of you to get dual spirit (weapon/shield) by doing some nm/norm cow runs. THen do countess runs for the runes. You could probably trade one of your forges for a guardian angel which is a very veyr nice armor. Hmm.. The rest of the hammerdin gear is very basic, and you can get with just pgems. Tgods/dwarf/raven/magefist/tarnhelm or peasant crown/waterwalks.
You can get all of that for pgems, which you can find by cowing with your hammerdin. A hr is 60pgems I believe, so it won't take you long to build up your wealth and get your pally an enigma and the rest of the cookie cutter hdin gear. GL
I guess I don't understand why this is even question. I mean what is it about pathetic damage and only being able to hit one monster at a time that made you even consider it for untwinked play, especially against the most cookie-cutter overpowered build in the game?
