Holy damage is a damage type strongly associated with and inflicted by many Monk Smiting Prayers and Dervish Mysticism skills, as well as several other skills. It is also inflicted by wands and staves linked to the Healing Prayers, Protection Prayers, and Smiting Prayers attributes, as well as the unique Divine Favor wand Stormray and Anniversary Hammer "Verdict".
