What Does Smite Do in Minecraft?

Last Updated:

Minecraft provides players with a variety of ways to improve their strength, including manufacturing new weapons and armor, producing potions, and using enchanting goods. Enchantments, for example, allow players to specialize against certain dangers, which may be highly advantageous for players who know exactly what they’re getting themselves into. The Smite enchantment is an example of this since it is incredibly precise but extremely strong in its use. Players that are unsure what it accomplishes or how to obtain it should look no further, since applying high-level Smite enchantments on weapons is really rather simple.

What are Smites really about in Minecraft? 

Smite is a weapon enchantment, which means it only works on swords and axes. Smite boosts a weapon’s damage by 2.5 (or 1.25 hearts) for each level it has, although this damage is only applied while fighting an undead mob. It’s typically not a horrible compromise because there are so many of these in Minecraft. 

For comparison, the Sharpness enchantment enhances all damage by 1.5 every level, thus Smite is really quite a bit better when it comes to dealing with the undead. Skeletons, zombies, zombie villagers, withers, wither skeletons, zombified piglins, skeleton horses, zombie horses, strays, husks, phantoms, drowned, and zoglins are all affected by this enchantment.

The Smite enchantment may be upgraded to level 5, and Smite V adds an extra 12.25 damage to undead monsters when applied to a weapon. For the purpose of comparison, a Wooden Sword enchanted with Smite V will do more undead damage than a Netherite Sword without any enchantments. It’s simple to see how this enchantment may be beneficial from there. It’s vital to remember that Smite and Sharpness cannot be combined on the same blade or ax since weapon damage enchantments are mutually incompatible.

The Smite enchantment may be obtained by enchanting a sword or ax at the enchanting table. This will need the spending of the player’s levels as well as some Lapis Lazuli, and even then, the enchantments accessible will be determined at random. If a player entirely surrounds their enchanting table with bookshelves, they may be able to get Smite V directly from the enchanting table.

How do you use Smites in Minecraft? 

To enchant a weapon with Smite, players must first create an Enchantment Table, which requires the gathering of many objects, including 4 Obsidian Blocks, 2 Diamonds, and a Book. After crafting the Enchantment Table, players may use it to enchant any item by right-clicking on it.

The player will then be sent to the Enchanting Screen, where they must first select the weapon they desire to Enchant with Smite, and then power the procedure with a Lapis Lazuli. After that, the player only has to add the special powers to their weapon using the Smite Enchantment book.
