Smite in Minecraft is an enchantment that is applied to swords and axes. This will maximize the number of damage players will do to undead mobs. Minecraft is a world overflowing with violent and lethal undead mobs.

What is Smite in Minecraft?

In simple terms, the Smite enchantment is fairly straightforward. This is used as a buff for the damage dealt. If we talk in more detail smite increases the damage inflicted on the undead mobs. It consists of 5 stages and it can only be added to swords and axes. After the completion of the first stage, each additional level raises the damage by 2.5, which can be fatal.

– Skeletons

– Zombies

– Zombie Villagers

– Husks

– Phantoms

– The Drowned

– Wither Skeletons

– Zombie Piglins

– Skeleton Horses

How to Use Smite in Minecraft

Smite is applied to a sword or ax by using an enchantment table. In order to enchant a table in Minecraft, players need 4 blocks of obsidian, 2 diamonds, and a book. The higher your level is the better the enchantments you can get. This is the reason that you will e lower-level attachments earlier on. If you put a bookstore near an enchanting table with a buffer area of one block, you can also improve your enchantments.  A bookshelf boundary of a total of 15  must be built to get the best results.


Open up your enchanting screen by right-clicking the enchantment table

The enchanting screen will show the above menu with options to place items and 3 buttons.

Select the sword or ax to be enchanted

Power up the enchantment table with lapis lazuli:

When you place the item, three randomized options appear on the right of the GUI.

The glyphs do not do anything to enchantment, but hovering over a presented enchantment shows one enchantment to be applied.

Choose the smite option:

The choices that are available have a level requirement equal to or below the player’s current level. A lapis lazuli requirement is equal to or below the number of lapis lazuli placed in the table.

How to remove smite in Minecraft?

If it’s Smite, Bane of Arthropods, or Sharpness, you can easily replace it. You can only have one sword at a time.

Sharpness Vs Smite

Smite and Sharpness are both very important enchantments for your main swords as both of these enhance the weapon’s damage. Since you already know that you cannot use Smite and Sharpness on a single blade. So according to you which one is better?

We already know about the Smith thing now let’s have a look at how sharpness stacks up:

First is Sharpness l: Add on 1 additional damage.

Second is Sharpness ll: Add on 1.5 additional damage.

Third is Sharpness lll: Add on 2 additional damage.

Fourth is Sharpness lV: Add on 2.5 additional damage.

Fifth is Sharpness V: Add on 3 additional damage.

If we see the list above, it is clear that smite is more powerful than Sharpness. But there is a thing that you should never forget is that you only use Smite on the undead Creatures.

At last, the debate is to the purpose you want to fulfill. For undead mobs such as the wither, Smite is the better option.

Fully pumped up by level V. Smite can also add a whopping 12.5 damage. This is to any weapon of any base damage. In case you have a diamond sword, it will be even more effective. You can kill mobs without vigorous effort.
