What is up with the description on this item? What is "+12 spell critical"? Twelve spell critical strike rating? +12 damage to spell critical hits? +12% critical chance?
Why is this phrasing different from every other spell enhancing piece of gear i have seen in the game? JoshuaRodman 12:33, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
It gives 12 crit points. About 22 crit points equals a 1 percent increased chance of having a critical hit. It adds 3 percent bonus damage to your crits. If you crit for 2500 damge, then your new crit about is 2575 damage points, if the 3 percent applies to your 2500 damage total. I think it's a dps meta gem. If you crit 30 percent of the time, you are adding .3 x 3 percent or .9 percent damage to your attack, plus 12 crit points. Oldragnar 00:38, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
Crit damage effect the new spell critcal ticks? Edit
Wondering if this will effect the damage of my "critical" corruption and unstable affliction ticks? Has anyone tested it?
