    Fortitude ED questions for smite and charge

    Hi! I'm working on 2-h/1-h charger mostly for fun PvP and I want to have smite as a backup attack (when I'm using 1-hander obviously).

    I absolutely don't want to use Grief (feels like cheating:p) but rather try different weapons for which I couldn't find any use before that (stonecrusher and such, all work with charge:smiley:).

    So yesterday I took another paladin I have (zealot, no +dmg weapon) and tried forti on him. While it gave a nice boost to zeal damage, the damage increase with smite was pitiful (like +3min and max). So, does the 300% enhanced damage from fortitude actually work on shield damage for smite or only on +dmg from weapon? Or maybe it doesn't display?

    My second question is, is forti of any use for charge? I have a feeling that with huge damage from synergized charge it won't be very significant and +skills might actually add more damage..

    Well, in any case it's a fun build but the knowledge might come in handy for future 'efficient' builds:wink2:

    1: fort and grief dmg bonuses is now shown on character screen for smite. the real damage is calculated different for smite. use below dmg calculator for any type of weapon/shield etc...

    2: fort is usefull for charge too. but true as u say, an enigma would be better for +skills to charge dmg as it increases with skills much. but fort increases more. just try and see what is your dmg.

    20 charge + 20 vigor + 20 might and 20 fanat aura gives ~%1700 dmg to charge. %300 would make it ~%2000, just think if it would be beneficial or not for your build. i suggest use some other if maxed synergies.

    22 charge + 20 vigor + 20 might and 22 fanat aura gives ~%1800 dmg, just see difference.

    %1700 means dmg is 18 time of weapon damage. for 100-200 weapon it is 1800-3600 without extra mods and str/dex mods. 1800-3600 is not so low than 2100-4200 (with fort)

    grief damage on smite does NOT show up on character screen so you have to look it up on a calculator. as for fort im not sure since i dont use one but i believe it does not show the added damage of smite on character screen as well. if you use a grief on a full smiter its not unreasonable to see 5-6k smite damage.
