Ninja 4/05/17 Buff False Alarm

Being that S.A. isn't our only skill you have decent crit. I currently run dual rbf in main hand and dual black spirit in offhand, which sucks because feels like less damage than when I used double crit.

Translates roughly as "100% crit chance added to skill description for Serpent Ascension".

Another damage buff. Serpent meta, boiz.

I'm going to test it tonight. I jumped on the buff train early because it felt like it didn't always crit. This may just be a text change.

I did a little test yesterday and I´m still not sure... a guildmate lowered his equip and took off evasion and I took of the most equip too but its nearly impossible to count the crits ... :D the dmg tended +/- 30% which could be through the crit but also the rest evasion could be a thing...

You use a draining elixir. It heals hp for every crit.

As for the tests, I forgot to do them earlier. I'll be back with results in a few minutes.

Updated the original post.

This is a text change, not a buff. Serpent already has 100% crit chance.

Some other things I discovered while testing this: Skills with no critical hit chance % on them have 0% or very low critical chance. This translates as valor gems basically being your basic critical hit chance.

So are the valors worth even? Does it make more sense to go single valor single precision or even double precision.

Valors give the skills without critical chance a chance to crit. I didn't do extensive testing or # recording, but 1 crit seemed to be <10% chance, so +4% crit chance for 1 bar is probably correct for the gems. You're better off going precision, if you ask me. You can run add-ons instead to make up for it.

Guess it depends if you use any of our other skills or not, aren't SA and Drastic Measure our only 100% crit chance abilities? Katana shower, Seamless, blade spin, and shadow stomp don't have 100% crit chance.

yea of course but the question is the added 4 accuracy ect ect going to outway criting on the rest of those skills, im in the process of testing, for grinding it seems the 5 crit is better, havent done a node war in a few days ill see tonight

In Pve at least the loss of crit is very noticeable for me as you said. Katana shower has always for me been inconsistent damage in pvp, the loss of crit on it makes it feel extremely weak, the same can be said about vacuum slash since it only has 100% crit chance on the 2nd half of the ability. Testing I can even see a difference in murderous Intent damage since at max level it only has 50% crit chance.

 

So my personal experience is the loss of crit is too big for my gear and playstyle. For others it may be different but seeing as how between crit multiplier and crit offhand gems I don't see the jump in accuracy helping much unless they were running nothing but liverto/kzarka for accuracy in the first place.

 

It doesn't appear that were going to have the luxury of running no crit like warriors can.

Agree. Run the crit. After testing tonight running the crit is still superior.
