So i kinda thought that Crit damage was all the rage and we want big juicy crits and nice flashy numbers in shiny colours and all that.
So i went about trying to stack a bunch of OA and add a fair bit of +Crit dmg thanks to OK buff supplying 46% of that.
So i have 3400OA selfbuffed, jumps to 3800 with Ascension, and almost hardcapped FB for additional 330DA shred, and a neat little 96% crit dmg getting spiced up to 113% by Dying God at times.
… and my dmg/crits are kinda underwhelming 100-120k, “big” crits at 200k with everything up and running and RR stacked… which just, doesn’t kinda seem worth it…?
basically i was hoping for something “glass-cannon’ish” but kinda ended up just way more glass than “cannon”, and rearranging gear to be more sustainable just lowers the dmg further, while also not fulfilling my “aim” of hardcapped Firestrike line - Brimstone with passthrough for combined big aoe/big dmg
^that’s the girl, low armor, scary low phys res, low attack speed (combined with low dmg) means the sustain is pits with mere 10%ADCtH, - like i said, glassy, but not the cannon to back it up despite the OA crit and +dmg bonuses
so do i just accept that +100% crit does “nothing”, rebuild for less glass; suffer the dmg loss and come to terms with just being a sucky approach and that it not be worth a pot of piss to celebrate anything?
Or can the idea of a hardcapped firestrike line be salvaged to do some decent dmg at least (- while not dying to the first baddie merely raising their eyebrow)?
^the “thought” kinda being that OK crit + hardcapped firestrike line with massive oa/da shred would make up for the loss of not being a Purifier
(sustain-wise i’ve tried rearranging gear to accommodate more phys res, changed points to blast shield and ascension, the attack speed is still crap/lowered dmg means a bit extra LL does help but not “much”, ditching dying god for ex ghoul helps fairly here and there)
idono, did i misunderstand crit and its value, or is it just not “as effective” for “everything”?/ how does crit dmg eventually scale and is it “equal” for all things ?
cheers for bothering to “teach”/provide input to this traveler still learning the ropes it seems
