Smite range question

What is the range of smite? Is there any way to increase or decrease? Probably 1 and probably not any way to increase, but does anyone know? I finally found a barb I couldn't kill because he would only ww on the very outskirts of where i was and he had 2 x botd cb's so I couldn't hit him without moving and if I did, I died.

a phase blade's (silence pb :)) is range 2

any scourge is range 3

basically (well always....) look at the range of the weapon, your smite will be that range, make sure you have a range 3 weapon vs a barb who know about the range crap.......if you had a scourge you would have beat him had you used the right skill, not that you dun have any, but with a range 3, that narrow the odds down quite a bit, what were u using anyways?

I guess a doom scourge would be the weapon of choice for barbs like this?
Well then what is the best weapon for fighting these barbs? Zerker doesn't have the range does it?

Zerker axes are range 3. And they have decent speed. WSM 0 makes sure you need something like 55% IAS + lvl 20 fanat for max smite speed IIRC.

on my vindi/temp, I used a silenced zerker. There are many experienced vets who would back me up in saying that it is one of the best smiter weapons available. Good range, ias, fhr, resists, skills...etc, you get the idea. 35 ias isn't that hard to pick up, and the range can really help you if you know how to use it. It is the only way I could beat up on fast hard hitting wolves, zealots, and others. Range 3 over all!

with 27 Fanaticism you need 50%IAS for base 0 Weapon ...

I would say for no manner duel Doom Zerker/War Spike are pretty good.

Other wise Silence Phase or Silence Zerker should be default for smiting unless you can find 120 dmg Redeemer or 85/4 Iron Ward

Why would you use a war spike of a phase blade? I mean , IIRC war spike has a range of 2 , but a phase blade is faster.

Doom War Spike is for IAS setup to still have 6 fps Smite when facing against other Doom Users.

Hey guys, when did Phase Blades turn into range 2?

Diabloii.net says 1 while Arreat Summit (assuming arreat summit's right) says range 2.
