    Yeah, only if you can somehow teleport/charge through the hammerfield and not get hit by any of the hammers once you actually get to him, which is unlikely.

    Since the hammers are magic damage the DR% and Res are useless when facing him, your best chance would be stacking as much magic absorb/reduction as possible, but since hammers do so much damage its still pretty pointless.

    Yeah, just for reference, there are only 3 mods that reduce magic damage:
    - magic protection (crafted safety shield, maximum 10%)
    - magic absorb (spirit sword, maximum 8 absorb)
    - magic damage reduced (various items, more or less 30-40 iirc)

    But all in all, it's nothing but a drop of water on a hot plate,
    it'll only hold 200-300 damage while you still receive several 1000's (each hammer)

    Get your hp to 6k+ and use charge... And be lucky ofc, and you might kill him once or twice..

    For Magic damage reduced, what does it mean? When it says reduced by 3, does that mean if they deal 25 magic damage, it ONY gets reduced to 21? or is it different?

    25 - 3 = 22.

    Can you score couple kills on hammerdin? Yes
    Can you beat a decent one in ft5? Nope

    Specially hard if all he does is joder around the moor. Telestomping with oakstack works sometimes, quick blind spots work if stops for a second etc.

    Re: Can a Smiter kill a Hammerdin?

    So on overall, smiter needs a lot of skill/concentration/special build/luck to beat a hammerdude,
    dude needs his left mouse cursor to stay down and can go have a drink/shower/... meanwhile ^^

    EDIT: perhaps they should invent a skill similar to throw item? (throw shield? )
