    Usefulness of Phoenix on a Hammerdin?

    I'm wondering if a Phoenix shield might be more useful than a HoZ on my Hammerdin key runner? I'm thinking that the redemption would add to the corpses that quickly made unusable for Nith's Corpse Explosion (I plan on using Nature's Peace but I worry about my merc killing things). And will that nice damage bonus apply to the hammers? Thanks!

    HoZ is much better IMO, i really wouldn't worry about the strays that ur merc kills. btw i have a hammerdim and a lite sorc, my lite sorc is a much better key runner. I only use my hammerdim for rushing folks for ancients and/or chaos runs..

    A good PvM Hammerdin should have a point in Redemption, and keep it on a hotkey for quick switching. Hammerdins already meet the prerequisite skills, it only needs 1 point. With +skills it can out-perform Phoenix's auto-Redemption, and allows you to keep yout HoZ/Spirit. All you need to do is learn how to quickly flash it up when need be.
