    Re: Can a Smiter kill a Hammerdin?

    The problem for a smiter is that if telestomps a hammerdin he'll be masacred. If he goes for desynch he'll still lose. The solution hinges on the weakness of a paladin, as a paladin, similar to a barbarian, was meant to be a tank, not a blaster, yet without the same level of crowd control as the barbarian. This opens up an exploitable weakness of any paladin. (In general, the paladin was supposed to be able to stand in a crowd of meelers and casters (paladin's have the easiest getting high resists) while hitting many or take out single big enemies, whereas the barbarian was supposed to single out targets with crowd control and through high hit points and clever use of combat skills and the environment, prevail. Therefore a paladin cannot single out and caputre any single target, unlike the barbarian. Which ironically is also why a paladin is one of the worst choice when dueling casters, especially druid's and necro's, but sorc's too. Weapon - Eternity. Apply minion stacking. Use large melee minions, and don't go for amp casters. A paladin can only hit one target at a time. Unless he has hacks, his blessed hammers won't hit you. Telestomp him with 10 revives and you can safely smite away, and win: http://diablo.incgamers.com/forums/s...ve-in-duels-if. A typical duel game lasts for ~20 minutes. Revives lasts for ~3 minutes, so you'll need to revive 7 - 8 times, that is 70 - 80 monsters. There should be plenty.Make sure you've enough ort runes + chipped topaz's [~ 8 * duel games] (or whatever the recipe is) so you can cheaply repair the charges.

    Re: Can a Smiter kill a Hammerdin?

    LOL of course you can kill him, but first u need to change ur gear, with that gear i doubt it, u dont even hit the 6 frame smite with that gear and ur damage is low,dont need so much CB, put ber in Zaka ect ect,change COA use Shako, Grief PB, 9 Combat sks, put 2 bks, or str/dex life ring...and second of all u need to have a dueling strategy.
    I'll share with u one
    What Hammerdin does is teleporting on top of you, to slow him try to put charge on attack and holy freeze aura and charge around, if u see hes coming close at u, quick switch to smite/fana and use shift-smite before he teleports on top of u and he will land right on top of ur smite lol, he will be slowed and u have a chance to kill him if u do a good amount of damage,because u do the first hit and he will be stuned from smite too, but u have to be realy quick with charging and switching to smite and switching auras. Another trick is to try to charge always south of him, so his hammers cant hit you, because u know the way they row.

    To all the guys who are saying it can't be done, watch n learn, this V/t raped him 10-0 easy, with the same strategy:
