Respect for making this thread as a lv90 Mage yourself, and whilst this would be a considerable nerf I feel that the damage is the problem, you could still get lucky and get all crits Either way, this would be a good nerf, +1
Then you realize that Berserker (Berserk) is bugged. Says it gives +15% crit chance. But with testing it doesn't. Icri
How did they figure that out? It couldn't have been like "well we just did 5 Wounding Strikes in a row and only 1 Crit instead of 3 so therefor its bugged!"
"• Berserker's Ultimate increase your crit chance by 15%. - It doesn't. We were the first surprised. What started as a routine test on raw damage ended up as a test for an ultimate no one would believe to be broken. Results were not the one we expected. From the statistics, berserker's ultimate doesn't seem to increase the crit chance at all. If you believe our echantillon of strikes to be too low, we encourage you to try for yourself, you'll notice a trend. First try: 127 strikes with a supposed 16%+15% crit chance. Result: 20 crits out of 127, which gives a 15.7% crit chance. Second try: 128 strikes with a supposed 20%+15% crit chance. Result: 26 crits out of 128, which gives a 20.3% crit chance. Third try: 102 strikes with a supposed 16%+15% crit chance. Result: 15 strikes out of 102, which gives a 14.7% crit chance. Fourth try: 253 melee hits with a 5% crit chance weapon. Result: 13 crits out of 253 melee hits, which gives a 5.1% crit chance. Note: this last one could just be berserk not affecting crit chance on melee, but on other skills."
Hmm... I guess that seams reasonable. Still, maybe they were just really unlucky? But I will give u that that's a hard bug to prove...
