|Drain rate||40 points per minute|
Smite is an overhead prayer unlocked at level 52 Prayer. It was the highest level prayer until the July 2007 introduction of Chivalry and Piety. When active, attacking another player will cause 1/4 of the damage done to be drained from their Prayer.
Use in multi-combat areas in the wilderness (PvP)
With smite and ancient mace's special attack it is possible to drain an amount of 100% of the damage dealt plus one fourth of the damage. This is used by groups of players in the wilderness on multi-combat areas to obtain items that normally would be protected by Protect item prayer.
- Prior to 12 January 2017, if prayer was drained to 0 by Smite at the same time players died, their prayers would remain active, and Protect Item would still take effect.
