I have been wondering about this as well. Somebody in my guild told me that raising your crit number does not increase your crit damage. It just increases your chances of doing crit. She said for every 100, it gives you a 3% chance of critting. If that is the case, why do you see people with 10k+ crit stat?

Crit based damage is to variable to test really. I can hit with same skill and crit both times yet the damage amounts can vary as much as 30k (With slyph) and as much as 810 k out of slyph mode. What determines crit damage amount ....and why can it be so different for same skill, i dont know. IE arrow strike crit hit 18 k damage..arrow strike crit hit 26 k damage on same target...ummm huh???

Ok. I did short test to provide some data.
Had 2.4k crit, 4.5k crit and 6.4k crit.
Did it the way Arlad suggested. I took off my troops and used auto attack on the monster from lvl. 58 mine.
Important stats: 39.2k MATK, lvl. 9 Determination.
2.4k crit  10 critical hits, damage range  39k to 48k
4.5k crit  10 critical hits, damage range  39k to 47k
6.4k crit  10 critical hits, damage range  38k to 48k

For purposes of tests I made ~202 hits with LB on my friend mage.
I had 6.4k crit and my crit rate turned out to be 3940%.Last edited by Caballero1321; 06232014, 06:28 AM.

She is wrong for sure.

I am not concerned about the chances. I just want to know if it increase the amount of crit damage you do.

While doing tests I dealt 10 critical hits per every tested amount of crit value.

Also if you are a knight or archer with maybe 6k crit, what you might lose IF there is any gain by having crit gems to increase critical, is negated to an extent if you put them in mdef, by taking less damage from mages and magic sylphs!
My own feeling is that I can see no reason whatsoever why we can't be advised officially exactly what the critical formula is to avoid any misunderstandings. Then all players can decide exactly whether or not to use gems and astrals beyond a certain point, based on fact, not speculation!  HowieLast edited by Howie1; 06242014, 07:20 AM.
