When i play Warwick if have always the question how good is smite.

its a very good spell and you can jungle faster whit it.
that will give you faster xp and money = items.

i noticed that when you take smite, you have a strong early, and a very strong mid game,
but in the end/lategame the spell it tends to get weaker and weaker.

thats the point i want a ignite or something like that.

so i ask, what is youre experience?

I use summoner spells as a "helping start": so to get quicker at higher lvls..

Also I think a strong midgame is probably most important: if you do well in mid, you can easily make a gab with the other team that they have to be lucky and you have to make a mistake if they want to win. - You can force them to defend (and thus you can eventually take the nashor).

Since smite deals high damage to monsters and not champions, it is better in the beginning because your champion cannot deal much damage yet. In end-game, people could even skip it for finishing off boss monsters or buff monsters and rather go with an ability for the same damage.
So yes, Smite is EPICFACE in beg-mid game but I don't find it useful in end-game.

Edit: Smite can though be used to killsteal nashor in end-game.

Use early game advantages well enough and there wont be a late game. If there is, and you suck in it, you need to work harder during your early game.

If you are purple and you ward baron so you got vision on him, you can use smite to steal their buff if you time it well. You need to calculate the dmg smite does though, to prevent using it too early. Smite has its purposes even late game.

One Smite per team is nice for stealing dragon / baron without risking your life.
Its also good against pets, so if you have to fight a Heimerdinger, Annie, Mordekaiser or Shaco (not absolutely sure about that one) you have a nice counter to them.
Also, pushing back Super Creeps is easier with Smite.

The main purpose of Smite later in the game is to speed up killing buff creeps, and maybe to snag some gold quickly while passing through a minion wave. Yeah, its usefullness falls off, but look at it this way:

The purpose of Smite is to provide you with better jungling, giving your team another solo lane and therefore more XP. It allows you to utilize the jungle better early in the game and should end up providing a strong mid-game advantage if nobody screws up.
