One of my baron steals (bad camerawork):

My match history up until about 1600 Elo: http://puu.sh/1uosm

Is taking smite mid just being troll, or does it have any viability by taking both blues at level 1?

It's viable if you can reliably steal their blue through some badass co-ordination. But in all honesty, it's just troll.

Kiss slowly, play hard, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything and have no regrets. Life's too short to be anything but happy.

If you're laning with smite, it'd only be viable on morgana or lee. Lee and morg have spell vamp, and if you build stuff like Wota or gunblade, your spellvamp increases. Lee receives about 180hp I think from Max W and with increased spellvamp from gunblade it would only increase. Morgana has a passive that has a % spellvamp but I don't know how much, I ran Lee with smite top, a 250s cd heal versus a 90 or 60s smite is nothing to scoff at. I didn't do any math, but assuming that max W which is around 180hp times the amount of smites are up should be more than heal.

Ryze's ult gives spellvamp, and I think smiting cannon minions has saved me from some deaths :3

I had 4k gold and asked the enemy Galio, "What should I buy?"

When the gold runes and masteries first came out, I used to run Smite on morg mid to see how much money I Could get by 20 minutes. I'd also get the mastery that grants money for smiting minions. I'd get two or three GP10s, farm and farm and farm, smite whenever possible.

By 20, I'd have 2 Rabadon's. Funny.

Outranged by every ranged dude in mid lane. All they'd need to do is to dodge your axes and they'll be fine.

It's being troll because what it says to the other team is:
I'm new at this game and still have no clue what this spell does
or
I'm not taking this seriously cause someone picked the champ i wanted so i'm going to fuck the game up for them
or
I just wanna troll


If you are generally awesome with it, capable of stealing consecutively, denying everything you can with it, then its great. However, taking it does put you at an offensive or defensive disadvantage. Because you're taking smite, you have to choose between either flash or ignite.
If you don't take flash, you run the risk of getting caught without the ability to escape, thus getting you killed. You also lose some chasing ability
If you don't take Ignite, you run the risk of missing several kills that ignite would have gotten you.

Force them to fight away from tower. They either follow you or lose buffs.

Food for thought: Smite on Olaf is 50 health and 10g every minute. Double the health later on.


Shame exhaust is so useful :/ If I didn't have to pick exhaust/ghost, I would definitely consider smite as a viable choice.

Remember when Heimer got a lot of mid play? That's the only time I would take smite.
