    Smiter Questions

    I can't seem to find a guide about Smiters in general so I figured I'd post here.

    This is what I was thinking of in the way of gear for a PvP Smiter.
    Upgraded Gores
    Upgraded HoZ
    IK gloves/belt
    Highlords/Cats
    Shako
    Shaft/Stone Ethereal Armor
    Ravenfrost/BK ring

    As for a weapon I'm not sure
    -6-Socketed Berserker Axe s/15% IAS jewel, 4 Ums, something else
    -Redeemer
    -Upgraded Headstriker

    This is what I was thinking of in the way of skills.
    20 Smite
    20 Holy Shield
    20 Defiance
    20 Fanatism
    1-3 Charge
    1-3 Zeal

    Could get around 30K defense (with stone rather than shaft) 100% OW, and smite at the fastest speed possible provided I added correctly.

    Would this work for PvP? Any thoughts or suggestions on how to improve this? If you have a Smiter can you please post your skills and gear?

    you need IAS from gloves or something else to get fastest smite with zerker axe. Try using a phase blade and you won't need anymore IAS.

    25% from IK gloves and belt, 20% from Highlords or Cats, 15% IAS from the zerker (if I decide to go that way) and Fanatism should give me 60% IAS to hit 6fpa Smite correct? The only reason I opted for the zerker over the phase was for more range.

    Anyway, how is the damage on smite calculated? Does it increase when you add points into strength and/or dexterity? Will deadly strike help smite?

    str n dex will add dmg, deadly strike doesnt work w/smite.
