Description

Temporarily
Stun
your enemy by bashing it with your shield.

Always Hits.

Smite
always hits a target in range, so Attack Rating does not matter when using this skill.

Smite
does not work with Life/Mana Steal.

Smite
is a weapon skill and thus is affected by Attack Speed (e.g. '
Fanaticism
') and is not affected by Cast Rate (e.g. -of the Apprentice).
Smite
works with any "X% Chance to cast level Y (spell) upon striking" ability on your weapon.

Smite
does not receive added damage vs. undead with the
Sanctuary Aura
.

The Fire/Cold/Lightning damage added to attacks with the
Holy Fire
,
Holy Freeze
, and
Holy Shock
auras do not add onto
Smite
damage.

Smite
can steal life with
Life Tap
cursed on target.

Smite
can also deal crushing blow and open wounds damage, but not deadly strike and elemental damages.

Using
Smite
will reduce the durability of your weapon not shield.

Lore

The sword of a Paladin represents the might of righteousness and his shield symbolizes the strength of his faith.

Both are tools he uses to mete out justice.

Just as righteousness can give his spirit the fortitude to overcome the attacks of the unjust, so too can faith be a weapon to strike back at those who work to defeat him.

To this end, the Paladin has developed several combat techniques that use the shield not only for defense, but also as an offensive weapon.

The following things Works with Smite

  • Bonus damage from strength (each point of strength adds 1% Enhanced Damage).
  • + Skills (increase damage a great deal).
  • Crushing Blow (including Crushing Blow on the weapon; e.g. Black runeword).
  • Weapon range.
  • Weapon speed (see below).
  • Life Tap
    (charges can be found on wands and daggers, save this for tough spots).
  • Hit Blinds Target (From all gear, including the weapon and the shield).
  • % Chance to cast (including from the weapon).
  • Prevent Monster Heal.
  • Open Wounds. NOTE: Open Wounds does not work when a monster is at full health. This means that, if you are Smiting an undamaged Physical Immune, Open Wounds won’t take effect and you cannot rely on this method to kill a Physical Immune (of course, you could use a weapon like Crescent Moon which has a chance to cast
    Static Field
    ).
  • Enhanced Damage which is off-weapon.
  • Damage +X, which is the attribute that the above items have, is added directly to the shield damage just like the
    Holy Shield
    bonus. This means that any % Enhanced Damage bonuses which work with
    Smite
    will apply (e.g.
    Fanaticism
    ).

The following things do not work with Smite

  • Leech (life/mana).
  • Knockback (apart from the standard Knockback on the skill).
  • Elemental damage from equipment or charms.
  • Elemental damage from auras (e.g.
    Holy Shock
    ) (the area effect will still work, just not the applied damage).
  • Magic damage from
    Sanctuary Aura
    (the area effect will still work, just not the applied damage).
  • Gear and charms that add a set amount of damage. except for those items which have the Damage +X attribute (e.g.
    War Traveler
    will not add damage to
    Smite
    except for the strength bonus).
  • Enhanced Damage on the weapon.
  • Enhanced Damage to Undead.

Smite speed is dependent on

  • Base weapon speed.
  • % Effective Increased Attack Speed (EIAS) from
    Fanaticism
    .
  • Increased Attack Speed (IAS) in gear.
  • 6 frame
    Smite
    is the fastest possible.
