    I personally like to get at leat 65% blocking on all my Paladins who use a shield. You cannot get to that level of blocking at high clvls (i.e. 80+) without investing in dexterity.

    Kepp in mind that despite being a Mage a Hammerdin has to be in the middle of the action to be effective, and he has no life leech.

    My hammerdin has 136 dex without any +dex item. With all the equipment, he has reached 75% blocking. So I guess you can aim at 120-130 for dex.

    A good Hammerdin needs to maintain 75% block with Holy shield active, so you'll have to invest into dex no doubt.

    Life leech is not available, but Enigma armor does provide +14life/kill - good enough if you don't get hit often.

    As I use HoZ(75 % Block), Guardian Angel(+20 % Block) and HS(+36 % Block) for my pala, he only has 115 dex or so (EDIT: He's lvl 92, btw).. What you need is definately MAX BLOCK! If I can, I always go for max block, even on sorcs..

    HoZ is 82% block. With that equipment (138 block) you only need 101 dex for max block at level 80.

    Don't put too many points in dex. Consider your end game equipment that affects block - Guardian Angel (20 block), Mara (5 dex), Shako (2 dex), Hoto (10 dex), anni (10-20dex), ravenfrost (20 dex).
    It's easy to put too many points into dex too early on.

    I have max block exactly.. But I get your point.. The lvl of dex i stated is including +dex from equipment.. Probably should have wrote that for starters..
