You can save up to a single use of this skill, Extra smiting allows you to save up to 3 uses. A single use refreshes every 3 minutes, Extra Smiting halves the refresh time to 1.5 Minutes.

Divine Wrath

Divine Wrath grants scaling Attack Bonus (AB), Damage (Dam), Damage Reduction (DR), Regeneration (Regen) and Saves.

Level AB Dam DR Regen Saves
5 +1 +1 5/+3 +1 +1
10 +2 +2 5/+3 +2 +2
15 +3 +3 10/+4 +3 +3
20 +4 +4 15/+5 +4 +4

Divine Smite

Divine Smite grants scaling Damage based upon the difference between the smiter's alignment and the alignment of the recipient of the Smite.

The full amount of Smite damage (100%) is delivered at opposite ends of the Alignment Chart, meaning a Lawful Good smiter and a Chaotic Evil recipient (or vice versa). Partial Smite damage is delivered based upon the following:

  • Start at 0% Smite Damage (same alignment)
  • Each difference on the Law <-> Chaos axis is +10%
  • Each difference on the Good <-> Evil axis is +40%
  • A small, unknown RNG amount is then added to help prevent alignment metagaming

Lawful Good (LG) Neutral Good (NG) Chaotic Good (CG)
