    a level cap increase is where they're going to completely fuck us for crit I think. The only reason we're able to get our stuff so high atm is cause gear has gotten better but we haven't gained any lvls. Whenever they do raise the cap, I bet our crit will drop tremendously, cause I'm surethey don't want the game to become like eq2, at least stats wise lol.

    I think it will have a bigger effect then just next expansion. 60% self buffed crit with T2 raid gear will probably go down to about 50% or so.. depending on how it's applied. For example, if you're 40% crit from stats and then take % modifiers, will it scale back your gear first because of the modifiers (applied first) or after?

    I'll hop on test tonight to mess about.

    32 assassin with the crystal is also pretty damn close to melee-sab and is getting a boost, but the crit nerf will effect both builds equally.

    I think it's actually a stealth warrior nurf. They scale horribly with ap, and depend on high crit rates for their dps. With a crit nurf and some rogue buffs it should even out. Mages also stack sp vs crit so will be scaled back less.

    Maybe in their dps models for the different classes they forgot to factor in stacking a specific stat which lead to warriors leading the pack in dps and mages lagging behind. With this correction it might even out and be more balanced.

    Buffs that give % crit do not get affected by DR.

    Someone did some testing on the offical forums and came up with 1050 as the number when diminishing returns start to hit. The reason is resonance from bard, the % stat buffs to dex... which tells me it's not an exact number. If someone goes for the crit stat then resonance has no effect, but if they're indirectly getting crit from dex then resonance will push you over cap.

    Either way, I'm too lazy to min/max it and will go with the 1050 number unless someone else wants to do the research to get a more accurate number depending on build and pure dex/+ crit mix.

    After the soft cap it becomes ~100 crit per 1% from ~30 crit per 1%.
