Strategy[edit | edit source]

A cheap direct damage spell, useful for damaging enemy minions or removing Divine Shield. Holy Smite can also be cast on the enemy hero for a spike of damage to finish off limping opponents, or be used in combos with cards like Prophet Velen and Malygos for massive burn damage. In Wild, this card is less efficient for face damage than Mind Blast, but can be used to supplement Mind Blasts in combos, especially since it can be cast for free with Radiant Elemental on the board.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Smite is a priest spell from World of Warcraft, renamed from "Holy Smite" prior to the game's release. A simple cast-time attack that deals Holy damage to the target, it is the first spell that priests learn when they begin the game. While priests levelling in Healing specs may use it deal damage to mobs, at higher levels its use is less important, since these specs generally focus on healing rather than dealing damage. However, Discipline priests use their Atonement passive to allow their Smiting to generate healing for friendly targets, making the spell a regular part of these priests' rotations, especially during quieter periods.
