The last point about Life Tap is very important, since the item Dracul's Grasp grants the attacker a chance to cast Life Tap on each strike. This has made the Smiter a very powerful character on Battle.net, and has made him favored in taking down the three Uber Prime Evils in Chaos Tristram. Thanks to his attack that never misses and constant life tap with 50% life leech that he can apply, he is capable of taking on the hardest challenge in Diablo II on his own.
The sword of a Paladin represents the might of righteousness and his shield symbolizes the strength of his faith. Both are tools he uses to mete out justice. Just as righteousness can give his spirit the fortitude to overcome the attacks of the unjust, so too can faith be a weapon to strike back at those who work to defeat him. To this end, the Paladin has developed several combat techniques that use the shield not only for defense, but also as an offensive weapon.
