    Is Guardian Angel harmful for crit mages?

    I saw it mentioned somewhere on the forum in an old thread that GA is counterproductive for crit mages, but there wasn't any explanation why. If it hinders the ability to make crit heals, I think it could still be useful in pvp..

    Can anyone here give me some information on the interaction between GA and crit mages? I changed to crit fairly recently, so any info is appreciated. If it's no good, I would rather feed my GA to another astral...

    You crit rate is not affected because you are not hitting critical on yourself and GA affects yourself , not others. That's the reason.

    So in your own words...
    How did you conduct your testing?
    I tested thoroughly before ditching it completely, same conditions only GA taken out of the system for days.
    I run in this moment +8k of crit and obviously getting a lot of critical healing.
    I spent 2 about months with crit 6k+ and GA. Before I add GA critical heals where pretty frequent, after none, when I took it out it started happening again. Magic? Maybe, since we're mages...
    The GA Astral reduces the possibility of receiving a crit, no matter of what type, getting a critical heal has a lower chance than hitting a critical, let's say in a na archer or knight, you know the other factos that influence the chance I hope. When you reduce with GA by a high % the chance goes to near 0.

    the only drawback on it is if you use chaos when they heal it will reduce the crit chance but thats not very often
    The texto says and I quote "Chance of receiving crit reduced by x%". Oponent is never mentioned since the astral works on yourself.
    Yes it pretty much reduces to 0 the chances of critical heal yourself, I run with it myself for a couple of months until I figured out why I could crit heal everyone in my party, but myself.
    Apart from that I don't think there's any other effects.
