Re: Suicide branch or Wizspike - What's your opinion?
A wizspike is a much better choice for a hammerdin. A hammerdin doesn't need the +1 skill from suicide that badly. With a wizspike and an extra pcomb in inventory you gain a alot more stack/mana than you would with a suicide with 3x 20/5 small charms instead of the pcomb. The huge stack from a wiz will increase your survivability a lot more than minuscule life you will gain from the branch set-up.
