Accessing the Greater Smite ability (centering the blast on the player)

Once a character obtains 21 levels of Paladin, Blackguard, or Champion of Torm, they will automatically gain the ability to perform a Greater Smite. Players must relog their character for this change to display in their GUI so it can be used. The Greater Smite ability manifests itself as a touch-range radius blast centered on a target (player, monster, or ground). This ability can be found in the Special Abilities menu, as illustrated in the picture on the right.

Ability Properties

As a touch attack, Greater Smite has the following offensive properties:

  • AB: Equal to the player's level (including legendary levels), plus 1 point for each level of a smiting class (Paladin, Blackguard, or Champion of Torm) taken, resulting in a maximum AB of 100
  • Damage: Damage dice (dX) for Greater Smite are determined by the amount of Great Smiting feats the smiter has:
    • No feats: d4
    • Great Smiting I-IV: d8
    • Great Smiting V-VII: d10
    • Great Smiting VIII-IX: d12
    • Great Smiting X: d20

Greater Smite will do (Charisma Modifier * 4)dX damage of a selected type. The damage types available depend on the class and can be selected with SIMTools commands:

  • Paladin:
    • !damfi - Fire
    • !dampo - Positive Energy
    • !damma - Magical
    • !damdi - Divine
  • Blackguard:
    • !damco - Cold
    • !damne - Negative Energy
    • !damma - Magical
    • !damdi - Divine
  • Champion of Torm:
    • !damso - Sonic
    • !dampo - Positive Energy
    • !damma - Magical
    • !damdi - Divine

Additionally, if the character has 21 levels of Paladin or Blackguard, does not belong to a quasiclass, and possesses the Great Smiting II feat, they will additionally do (Charisma modifier)dX Sacred (Paladin) or Vile (Blackguard) damage. The damage done by Greater Smite will never heal an enemy; if the damage type selected would normally heal an enemy, the enemy will not be affected by the Greater Smite.

  • Usage: Greater Smite is usable an unlimited number of times per day, but it only works if you have smites available. The base time the ability must recharge is 6 minutes, though several feats can reduce this amount:
    • For taking Great Smiting feats (up to Great Smiting X): -20 seconds each (up to -200 seconds)
    • For taking the Extra Smiting feat: -40 seconds

A character with all 11 of the above feats can use Greater Smite every 2 minutes. Resting also recharges the ability. The character must recharge the ability after dying.

  • Important note: a Paladin or a Champion of Torm can target Evil foes. Blackguards can affect any foes they wish.
