Why do hammerdins use HoZ? I am using spirit myself in a [email protected] sacred targe and I find this option superior - because with a plain 10% fcr ring, I reach the ultimate cast speed. Worth the 2k damage less imho, because the total damage output is higher, also faster teleporting is a very comfortable thingy. What does zaka offer, except the 2k hammer damage, what spirit does not have? Resis? Spirit is better. Life? Yeah, you get +20 vit and you need like 30 points of dex less, which is another +30 vit.. spirit, on the other hand, increases your BO level, which gives a similar effect if you have life skillers or other +life items. defense? Spirit hammerdin has a lot of it, 13-14 k, so it doesn't matter anyway. +20 STR? Fun thing, but if you use mp/dusk nigma, you don't need it. So in fact the only bonus is the damage, but isn't higher fcr breakpoint more important than that? You can get the highest breakpoint with zaka too, but you lose shako, which is an insane mana/life source, and maras, which has great resists, some skills and increases your life/mana by increasing bo levels. So in fact that version is much weaker hp/mana wise. Perhaps I missed something about Zaka?
