      Here is my Mage, currently I am rocking the WD but it is very tempting to switch over to Sniper+Determination. I know that WD is better for PVP but is that the only reason?

      Thank you in advance

          Yes PvP is pretty much the only reason to stay with WD/tankie mage build. Given that PvP is a HUGE part of the game tho it's a pretty big reason. I'm at about 3k crit right now and nowhere close to a "tankie" mage but I stick with the crit build and do "decent" in PvP. That's at about 74k BR however and against true "tankie" WD mages I am at the mercy of my crit chance. I'm stubborn though so I stay with it and am hoping to bump up to around 3.7k crit within the next month.

              Yeah this is exactly what I was talking about. If I time brut rune/50% timer/Thunderer correctly I can pull off some HUGE crits against people with similar BR (25-30k+ against mages and around 35-40k+ against knights/archers) but unless I hit that crit I'm just kind of sitting there like a moron hoping my Block astral can mitigate enough damage to keep me alive or my Thunderer slowed them so I have enough time to build rage for another Thunderer.

              Another big factor is RoF crits. They can mean the difference between 2 or 3 rounds of troop clearing at 70+ as well as dropping a knight or archer who is at low health right before they turn me into paste with their Dephic.

                  Well It'll be a while for me to get there but the top mage on my server has just over 4k crit and he crits pretty regularly. The only real problem is that unless you are equal or higher level than your target your effective crit rating takes a passive hit. Not sure on the specifics of the hidden numbers but it works pretty much the same as passive damage reduction for level difference.

                    so if you fight people higher level than you, you have lower chance to crit?

                      Exactly. It works in reverse as well. If you are higher level than your target your crit chance is passively increased. Same thing for damage. You can see it pretty easily with the new BG brackets as well as in MPs (you will crit much more often in GoD than DT NM if you are level 65).

                        does this apply for block too?

                          I honestly don't know if block has the same passive level difference effects on it.

                            The last time i tried with 3.2k it doesn't seem to make any difference. Will update on here when i'm free to test it out again
