Hammerdin is an especially popular build from Diablo 2, and we have a build that offers a similar experience to the original. The build in this guide offers something new by taking the traditional Hammerdin and adding Lightning Bolts that strike enemies from the sky, creating a playstyle that is flashy, fun and highly effective!
The build offers exceptional performance. Hammers fill the screen and zap enemies with Lightning that then chains to other enemies, which makes clearing packs of enemies an easy and satisfying experience. Hammers can also shotgun, and you're able to throw three at once which affords the opportunity to create an absolute Lightning storm of procs.
This setup doesn't require any Unique to function but gains tremendous damage scaling from Devotion and defense from Bastion of Honour .
Overall, the Hammerdin is a fresh take on an ARPG staple while also being fully capable of defeating all of the content in the game. It's easy to play, has great Damage and is relatively tanky. If you are looking for a new and flashy twist on an iconic playstyle then this is the build for you!
