    your damage is higher. But the +damage from grief isn't shown in the character screen.
    You have way better gear then me, and I can do ubers easely, so just give it a try:)

    You can count it:

    Min Smite Damage = (Shield Min Damage + (Damage +x) + (Holy Shield Min Damage)) * (1 + (Strength + (+x% Enhanced Damage) / 100)))

    Max Smite Damage = (Shield Max Damage + (Damage +x) + (Holy Shield Max Damage)) * (1 + (Strength + (+x% Enhanced Damage) / 100)))

    Damage +x is the +dmg from grief, in the enchanted damage you put all your off weapon ed%, such as 300% from forti, xxx% from fana and so on.

    Hmm... So, I was right in assuming the +damage from Grief was added directly to smite damage BEFORE all multicators. Also, it seems like strength provides 1% ED per point, huh?

    In this case, one REALLY can smite with a cracked buckler and no Holy Shield, with great success.

    Yes, str adds 1% ed per point.

    Don't know about great success, but basicly yes, you will still do decent damage.

    as mentioned, grief +damage doesn't show up on the Lieing Character Screen (just ONE reason why it's called the LCS)

    to put Grief in another context as how it applies to Smite:

    even the crappiest +340 damage Grief on Battle.Net is the equivalent of a +90 to Holy Shield weapon with regards to Smite damage.
