Smite is a melee attack skill that strikes an enemy or location, creating a lightning bolt that damages all enemies inside an area. Hitting enemies grants the player a temporary aura that adds lightning damage and shock chance.

Skill functions and interactions

  • The area damage caused by the lightning bolt is not melee damage: it does not benefit from melee damage modifiers, and cannot be used for effects like Fortify.
  • Each target can only be hit once by this skill: Enemies damaged by the melee strike cannot also be hit by the lightning bolt's area damage. Overlapping lightning bolts from a single attack cannot hit the same enemy.
    • However, this skill has a known bug/interaction where an enemy can be hit by both the melee damage from an additional strike target (such as from Ancestral Call SupportAncestral Call SupportSupport, Melee, Attack, Strike
