I do not think GGG can do much about crit. Even if they cap it somehow, crit will still out DPS non-crit DPS builds.


They can. Crit isn't that strong by itself, if you had 100% crit chance with basic 150% crit multi that would be just 50% more dps. Of course, getting even close to 100% shouldn't even be possible without seriuos investment, as it is, many builds can do it effortlessly.

Compare it to level of dedication your char must have to get RF bonus or low life. Building crit should be harder, much harder.

Even skills with a mediocre 5% base crit can go into 50% range quite easily, and with, say, 400% crit multi that's double dps right off the bat. Virtually nothing else you can do on passive tree at any cost can give you that much. We won't even go into the kind of craziness a build with 10% base crit weapon and more crit multi can pull off.

So, a step in right direction would be halving all crit-related bonuses and removing crit multi support, similar to what they did to item quantity.



Reducing the gap is not an issue, it is making crit builds be on par with non-crit builds. As long as crit builds do more DPS than non-crit builds while maintaining similar defenses, most would opt with going crit since there is so much benefits from it.


Sadly, this game falls in the trap with many other games I played that has the whole "crit or gtfo" mentality.

You can try and justify this item all you want, but the fact is that untill crits are changed it is lackluster. And making weapons that are not about crit will produce weak items. And none of your weak attemts of defending will change that.

Block+crit, that is what poe is about. Everything else is miles behind and weak conmparatively. Once it is changed then maybe this item will be somewhat good.



I do not think GGG can do much about crit. Even if they cap it somehow, crit will still out DPS non-crit DPS builds. Crit also has the advantage of causing status ailments as well. You either keep crit as it is or remove it completely. I may be narrowed-minded on this, but I been in games that has had crit capped, and they can still somehow dominate the ones that do not crit.


Also, another thing, this staff has semi-decent base crit, so you can still make a crit build out of it. May not be the best one, but it is better than nothing.


Again, I do not care how dominant crit builds are, as long this unique staff can make me viable in maps, then I am happy. While I prefer it to be optimized, as long I am having fun with the item, the rest.........I do not care.
