So I logged into my lvl 74 hammerdin and tried out Disintegrating aura with Iron Spiral, Hammer Vortex and 2/2 catapult, and I have to say, it feels better already. while I still had decent AoE from the orbiting spiral, the AoE on the hammers themselves help clear faster and the damage seems better then when I was only doing hit based damage. current % I am getting according to char stats, 309% throwing Dmg, 112% Void dmg, 69% over time dmg. also got 34 Str which isn’t that much str but it works.
I did notice you can grab some good void leech nodes real easy in void knight so you can leech off the void over time you are doing.
Overall I think the setup works just fine in endgame but at this point the skill trees level fast enough you can do all the tree pathing testing you need by yourself
And yeah, Crit doesn’t effect Damage Over Time at all so its not worth grabbing unless you want to swap to on hit. Also I’m not sure what you mean by “zealot’s conviction” I can’t find any reference to it in the passive or skill trees I have.
Edit: do you mean Guardian’s Zeal?
