Were rifts in the game when this guide was written? If so, how does the build do in rifts? Lots of tankiness... sounds like it might be good.

They were not yet, but as far as I know, this build suffers in rifts because of the range issue as well as narrow hallways nullifying hammer circles.

Sadly even if the narrow corridors werent a problem, hammerzon cant do decent single target dps, not even with battlemaiden, at least when i tried. Or probably there is a way if you somehow stack lightning pierce, and use umos/effigies to boost your physical damage and use magnetic field on bosses, but that would probably be still worse than some other build with the same investment.

Looking into old patch notes it looks like Askari Call was added in 1.3, so prob since this guide was written - is it worth investing in that (as a single target skill)?

That seems to mean lots of points in Stormcall and 1pt in Askari?

They are in the same skill tree, but dont let that fool you. Hammerzon is a wdm build, meaning you stack flat physical damage, dex, ewd with a high damage weapon, meanwhile storm zon (askari call and stormcall) is a caster build, focusing on spell dmg, lightning pierce, energy, energy factor. With hammerzon build, even if you max askari call, you will do exactly 0 dmg with it.
