    ultimate hamerdin gear

    I know that the best items for a hammerdin is arachnid mesh for belt, enigma for armor, shako for helm, Herald of Zak sheild, and heart of the oak for the wepon. What i dont know is what amy and rings he should use and what gloves and boots too. Keep in mind that all that im talking about is the very best elite stuff.

    My Hammerdin uses Mara's ammy and War Travelers(for 47% mf). You could also go with Silkweaves, or boots that add to your str and allows you to get more Vit points. One ring slot is a SOJ with a 30% mf ring for switch and the other is a Ravenfrost for the CBF. For mf you can also go with Tancred's Ammy and Boots for 78% mf.

    Ok he already uses frostburns so hes ok in that plus he uses a raven with a perfect nagel for mfing. all i need to get for him to finish him out is a maras and travs. After that i just think i should load up on the mf charms and combat charms too. thanks for yalls hlep.

    I'd say that frostburns is a very poor choice for a hammerdin magefists or trangs are way better

    the +2 vigor doesn't give synergy, and there isn't enough to recommend. I use eth treks with high poison resistances.

    I'm no expert but I doubt that Shako and Mara's are 'ultimate' gear for a hammerdin. They are both excellent of course but 'ultimate' gear would probably be outstanding rares that include fast cast.

    yeah, best amulet would probably be something crafted, or a rare, with +2skills, FCR, resists (if you need), life, mana, str, dex. Somewhere in that line

    Hiya Mack and all the other folks. It's been a while, but I popped in to read a few posts.

    wrt amulets and headgear, I'll voice my opinion on them.

    Since you're talking elite/ultimate, I recommend Mara. Why? Because it's generic +2 skills, NOT +2 pally skill. Therefore, the +2 Mara will add to Enigma's teleport or Call to Arms BO whereas Pally specific +2 will not. Besides which, it's far easier to get a Mara than a really good +2 pally amulet.

    Lord knows I've crafted and gambled hundreds of amulets and still don't have that ultimate +2 skill, 20 FCR, 30 F/R, 20 Res All, 25 MF.

    Same thing goes for Shako. +2 generic skill, not class-specific. Again benefits the non-pally skills gotten from elite equipment. Added that the only other thing that might be viable would be a circlet-class item. But armor class will be lower than Shako (so your chance to be hit may be a few percent higher) and circlets will not give you damage reduction.

    It's my personal preference that my Hammerdin has as much life as I can get. Let's me teleport into crowds without worrying too much about a nasty hit or two. So bumping up Battle Command and Battle Orders by using the generic skill boost outweighs the other factors in my opinion.

    best pally weapon on switch = 6/5/x cta man.
    Its godly to have arround 2.5k life in hell. So you can tank some attack.

    I have a Hammerdin on east sc non ladder, his gear is as follows:

    Cham'ed Shako
    Enigma Dusk-1282 def =)
    P diamonded HoZ
    13 resist all/11 life jeweled wiz spike
    Maras
    2x SoJ (also have 10%fcr, 7 str, all resist rare ring)
    Arachinds Mesh
    Viper Trample (Duped classic boots, meh (30%faster r/w,20%fhr,13 dex, 39 fr,38 cr, 15 pr)
    10x combats
    9x vita scs
    anni

    id suggest switching out boots with waterwalks/silks if you're ladder (not really sure on that), and HotO if u really want to, but just pefer wizspike myself. other then that, not much more you could do.

    -Edit- oh yea, on weapon switch, 6/6/1 cta flail and lidless, def. need cta nowadays. gives great life bonus and +1 skill

    "Its godly to have arround 2.5k life in hell. So you can tank some attack."

    Heh, I find that kind of funny, esp. since this thread's asking about "ultimate gear". Even with somewhat decent but not godly gear, I know I can get at least 2.4k+ without BO. I have 2.5k+ on my Smiter (no BO).
