      How much critical should you have?

      Hi,
      Title says it all...
      After watching a video, someone explained that now after the update you really only need around 700-780 critical as a max wizard to have a good critical stat. Is this true? Can anyone give me input as to why this is?

      I understand that it is now a comparative stat rather than just a percent, I just don't understand how the goldilocks number has changed.

      Thanks!

      Re: How much critical should you have?

      Because it's comparative, it's so hard to tell.

      Here are some things we know for sure:

      If a mob has no block, you should only focus on damage, and have at least 1 crit rating. This is because you will always have a 2x critical.
      If a mob has really really high block (for the sake of argument, infinite block rating), then you should focus on damage, because your opponent will always block the entire critical.

      This means for really easy mobs (like mobs until Celestia), or really hard bosses, you should focus entirely on damage than critical.
      For everything in between, it's impossible to tell, because KI hasn't released the formulas, to my knowledge.

      TLDR: I don't think KI has released concrete formulas, so I can't really give a good answer
      Since it's comparative, this answer will be different for almost every single mob/wizard you battle.

      KI hasn't released the formulas but several players have already derived it. There is even a calculator now available.

      Re: How much critical should you have?

      It's a complicated question to answer because it's not just how often you're getting the "Critical!" effect, but also how much damage those criticals are actually doing.

      I'm currently rocking about 650 critical on a Fire wizard, and I'd still say I'm getting the "Critical!" effect 95% percent of the time. It is likely, however, that my critical multiplier must be much lower like 1.1x-1.2x. I haven't really been keeping track though. It would require a bit of testing or math to figure out what a 1.0x hit should be and then determine much higher my criticals are.

      Pirate101 has a system where critical hits would display as "Epic Hit", "Mega Hit" or "Super Hit" (from weakest to strongest) based upon how strong a critical attack's multiplier is. I think it would be nice to implement something similar in Wizard101.
