I once played with a WW who said smite was for noobs.

The enemy team had a jungle Eve.

WW went 0/9/3.

Eve carried.

(This was back when Eve was still considered trash)

There is no dispute. You should take smite. Smite allows you to secure your buffs so others don't steal them. It allows you to jungle faster and (in some cases) allows you to do level 1 Golem. It also allows you to have some health left over after you defeat golem and lizard, and that gives you a fighting chance in the event you get ganked in the jungle.

You might not need smite if you are up against a team that won't harass you in the jungle, but better teams will find you and will give you a hard time if you're jungling. If you play against these teams then you should either have smite or you should be laning.
