Smite is a rune effect in Frenzy, a Fury-generating Barbarian skill.

This rune effect grants a 20% chance to call down a bolt of lightning that stuns the target for 1.5 seconds, making it a useful tool when trying to control an Elite during a battle. Stun tines are lessened on higher difficulties, which prevents this from being a full time stun lock, as a high level Barb with a fast weapon can deal more than 5 Frenzy strikes in 1.5 seconds.
