    what next for my hammerdin? (gear related)

    alright, i made my hammerdin a little while ago when i was dirt-poor (diablo wise) because i figured if anyone can do well mostly un-twinked, a hammerdin can... and it's turned out pretty nicely. a friend donated two soj's to my cause and after that he rolled nicely along through numerous baal runs and questing around hell.. now that he's managed to trade for and find some decent gear, my question for you pally-experts is.. what piece of gear should i go for next?

    im not looking for mf gear suggestions (although with vigor at 24, he can litteraly 'run' meph) but rather, gear for maxium damage and survivabilty in hell.

    i know there is a very good maxium damage hammerdin guide, but im looking for a more personalized suggestion on the next couple pieces of gear i should upgrade.. more like 'where is the weakness in my gear' ... and i know a hoto would be great, but i still cant' quite afford that.. so think of something below that price point (us east, non-ladder) ... with that said, here's where i stand

    ____


    hammerdin, lvl ** .. 6.8-6.9k hammer damage


    blessed hammers - 30
    blessed aim - 26
    vigor - 26
    concentration - 26
    holy shield - 21
    a point in redemption, plus prereqs

    (all additional points are going into holy shield)

    head - shako w/ ptopaz
    weapon - wizardspike
    shield - zak w/ pdiamond
    armor - shafstop
    boots - ik set boots
    belt - string of ears
    gloves - vemon grip, unique gloves
    rings - 2x soj's
    ammy - +2 to pally skill lvls, 43 fire rest. 3 rest resist

    it's a decent setup on the cheap.. ive got more than max resistance with wizardspike and zak.. and nice damage reduction with the shafstop and soe's... i could look for a better ammy, but this one is nice. ... is there anything i could improve on before stepping up to a hoto ?

    Switch that string to tgods. If you like to do baal runs, you'll need it. Also, you might wanna try to get hold of a mara or something. Change gloves too. If you plan on staying at 11 frames fcr, you can always use frosties or something. I would use other boots. I guess waterwalk would be alright. Meh, why get a Hoto? Hammers are overpowering anyway. Wiz spike is the best caster weapon there is in my opinion.

    Umm, I haven't used my hoto in like 2 months. If I used hoto, I would have to use arachnid to reach the 75% fcr bp, which would mean no tgods. Also, I don't like my mana with hoto.
