I just started a hammerdin, he's level 19 and I'm just now using the hammers. (Which are a huge pain to aim, but I digress)
What sort of control scheme to do you suggest? I'm assuming I want the concentration aura activated when casting to increase BH damage, but that just leaves me with my left click to cast hammers, which means that while the hammers cast fine if I click on an enemy, if I miss, he goes running right into the middle of them, as opposed to remaining still while casting hammers when using the right click.
Am I making sense or overlooking something? Thanks in advance.
I also recently started a hammerdin and had the exact problem. I pondered on what was an optimal control scheme, and on the end decided on left-click hammer and aura on right. Usually I click on the enemy to cast, but if you are afraid that you will miss and go runnining in, you can shift+click to cast . Hope this helped
I have experienced the same problems you guys have with the shift key and aiming the hammers. I finally got him to Patriarch status though. So far, the Hammerdin has been my least favorite Paladin build but at least now I will have a good Pit/Baal runner.
