  • Zapper/Burster and Smite

    As they are limited to self could they enhance their bolt power?

    Bolt as an instant power isn't smiteable.

      As Radecliffe notes, smite affects an existing weapon but bolt doesn't exist until it is activated and it resolves immediately. There's no time where bolt is a valid target for smite.

      Limiting smite to Self limits it to the character's natural weapons (usually unarmed strikes) and generously any weapon the character is actually using; dropping or handing off the weapon would end the power early.

      Think of smite as the burster / zapper sheathing themselves with their energy to make attacks hurt more. If you think of it that way then it's easier to parse the limitations.
      I hope you find the above post useful. And not insulting, because I was trying to be helpful, not insulting; being a pedantic jerk, that isn't always clear.
