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.

This prayer is popular among player killers due to the fact that it can be used to prevent their opponent from using the Protect Item prayer. Prayers are deactivated the moment prayer points reach 0.

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.
