Will the elmemental damage of Tiamat's Rebuke be added to the Paladin attack Blessed Hammer?

1 Answer 1



All the "Adds X to Elemental Damage" work only for melee attacks.

Blessed Hammer is a spell, and spells generally benefit from "+ % Elemental Damage" or "- % To Enemy Elemental Resistance", but Blessed Hammer is pretty unique and it deals not elemental, but Magic damage. AFAIK, there are no items with bonuses to it. So the only way to boost it is from "+ X to Skills" bonuses and from Paladin's Concentration aura.

  • Is Smite also a spell or is it a melee attack? How to know, if a skill is a spell?

  • @ceving Smite is a melee attack, but once again - it's special because it's a shield strike and not a weapon strike. So not all bonuses work for it, see this post with nice description of what works for Smite diablo2.io/…
