Template code

If looking for a Dervish profession-specific build, see the Smite Crawler section on this page.


  • "Dodge This!" "Dodge This!"
  • "I Am The Strongest!" "I Am The Strongest!"

Warrior Warrior: +7 in Strength:

  • Signet of Strength Signet of Strength

Paragon Paragon: +7 in Command:

  • "Go for the Eyes!" "Go for the Eyes!"





  • Zealous Scythe of Enchanting.
    • Players looking for maximum efficiency will want a customized 9-24 q3 Zealous Scythe of Enchanting, with 3 points in Scythe Mastery. However this particular weapon is completely optional and the build will work fine without it.
  • High energy staff with an enchanting mod.


Ice Wastes, detailed.

The Chamber / The Labyrinth

  • Use your team of heroes to clear the path to the Ice Wastes. A regular meta team like Mesmerway will easily dispatch foes on the way.
  • Stay behind when facing Aatxes, you don't want Death Penalty when facing Smites.

Smite Crawlers

  • You can easily aggro multiple Smite groups at the same time. Be mindful of your positioning.
  • Cast Drunken Master and Vow of Piety a few seconds before aggroing each group.
  • Ball your foes on top of each other.
  • Cast Sand Shards, "I am Unstoppable!", Grenth's Aura, Mystic Vigor. If your energy allows, also cast Vow of Strength. If not, begin autoattacking then cast Vow of Strength. After the third or fourth autoattack, the group will be dead.
    • It is also possible to precast all your enchantments with your staff equipped before switching to your scythe, however most of the time it won't be necessary.
  • Repeat the same procedure for every Smite Crawler group in the Ice Wastes.

Skeletons of Dhuum

  • Before engaging a Skeleton, check for problematic patrols which could disturb you. If everything is all clear, proceed.
  • Under your enchantments, simply autoattack the Skeleton until its death. Recast Grenth's Aura whenever possible.
  • There's no real risk of death against the Skeletons, you can very easily 1v1 them.
  • With experience, you can ball a Smite group with a Skeleton, allowing you to kill both at the same time with your spike !


  • Feel free to study the little patrol map on the "Usage" section to familiarize yourself with the Ice Wastes.
  • For this to work safely and reliably, having the exact armor and equipment recommended is mandatory.
  • Never aggro Coldfire Nights. Learning their patrols is a key part of Smite Crawler farming.
  • Walk backwards when engaging under an IMS so the enemy Smite group does not lose aggro.
  • Using alcohol will make the build even faster.
