Smite, originally called Holy Smite, is the first priest spell, known by all priests from level 1. Priests that specialize into Shadow will have this spell replaced with [Mind Flay].

Tips and tactics

  • Smite is the staple damage spell for Holy and Discipline priests used to fill space in the rotation while other more powerful attacks are on cooldown.
  • Thanks to [Atonement], Discipline priests can use Smite to heal their allies.

Trivia

  • Holy Smite is a basic Priest spell in Hearthstone. The flavor text reads: "It doesn't matter how pious you are. Everyone needs a good smiting now and again."
