Build Overview Summary/Rating/Interactions


  • This build is played as a Paladin! Using several skills to proc smite: Lunge from distance as a movement skill, javelin as a banner spamming smite every 0.8 seconds, and hammer throw having a chance to proc smite on every hit it does, we aim to get as many hammers spiraling around as possible and getting our mana low so smite hits even harder!

Main Interactions

  • Getting tons of adaptive spell damage by wearing a shield + having lower mana and utilizing devotion amulet
  • Using hammer throw and chance to proc smit on throwing attack idols to have tons of proc’d smites.
