Crit Strike is the chance to critically hit an opponent with a weapon.

Some weapons have a really high crit but generally lower damage - for example, maces hit harder than swords, but swords crit more.

If a character has a high Crit Strike, their weapon will crit more often, resulting in a higher overall damage output. Assassins and Rangers tend to have the most crit - and usually try to hit the hard cap of 50% crit rate. Chanters, Gladiators and Templars also benefit from a high Crit Strike.

Crit Strike can be increased with consumables and with socketing Crit manastones.

Percentage to CritEdit

The chance to critically strike an opponent is (Crit Strike - Strike Resist) / 10, with maximumlimit of 50%.

Crit Strike - Strike Resist Chance to Crit
300 30%

340 34%
360 36%
380 38%
410 41%
420 42%
440 44%
460 46%
480 48%
500 50%
700 50%

0 to 500, 10 points = 1% increase
500+, 10 points = 0% increase

Strike Resist Edit

The 1.9 patch introduced Strike Resist. Strike Resist negates Crit Strike values. Attacking higher level/grade monsters and player characters with enchanted armor requires more Crit Strike to penetrate their Strike Resist.
