Trivia[edit]

  • This skill was modified in the August 21, 2008 update to effectively remove it from PvP. Its modification was explained in that update's developer update.
  • This skill is considered by most to be the paramount example of a nerf and thus, has given rise to a nickname known as Smiter's Booning (or simply S-booning) or "[to] 25/90 <a skill>" (in reference to the new energy cost and recharge), or simply "booned." (example- "The skill got booned!") It is most often used when players cry out for the nerf of a particular problematic skill or when a skill has been made so underpowered it becomes unplayable in serious builds.
