How to use Smite in Minecraft

Battling mobs is a big part of Minecraft if you decide to reach the end. It involves gathering all sorts of resources, many of which come from mobs that are difficult to kill. Players can use different grades of weapons to defeat mobs and they can use enchantments to make the best weapons more effective.

Smite in Minecraft

Smite is an enchantment in Minecraft that can be applied to weapons. Specifically, it can applied to a sword or to an axe. Other weapons e.g. crossbows and bow and arrow cannot be enchanted with Smite. 

Smite will add more damage when a weapon with the enchantment is used to strike an ‘undead’ mob (all variations of Zombies, Skeletons, and Phantom). 

In order to enchant a weapon, you need;

  • An enchantment table
  • The weapon you will enchant
  • 3 Lazuli Lapis (found by mining underground at level 32)

The most difficult item to obtain for crafting an enchantment table is diamonds. You will have to mine for them and you must use an iron or higher pickaxe. Diamonds are found below Y level 16

Obsidian is easy to craft: pour a bucket of water on a source lava block. The tricky part is break the block once you have it. You need a diamond pickaxe for the job. In total, you need 5 diamonds (3 for the axe, and 2 for the table).
