- Removed bonus 10% crit from lights 1 and 2
Everything I’m going to say is about Cataclysm difficulty.
There are many situations where you are kinda surrounded of strong monsters and you don’t have time/space to land the 3th or 4th hit, at most you can only hit twice or heavy attack, then block. (Block -> land at most two light hits -> repeat) or (Block -> heavy attack -> repeat).
Notice I said “Kinda surrounded of strong monsters” that doesn’t mean a full horde of monsters.
You feel heavy in that situation, like you will recieve dmg soon cause all talents/trait are off and seems the only thing you can do is blocking and dodging, so the sooner you trigger the talents/trait up, the better.
Most Kerillians will agree with me that situation happens a lot. When that happen you are praying for that critical hit ASAP. Remember that heavy attack don’t have bonus crit.
Removing light 1 and 2, will nerf the most usefull hit of Dual Daggers, the first one.
Because the first light attack is what you use the most cause you are constantly blocking/pushing/using an item/swaping weapon.
That being said I encourage you to let the bonus crit of ATLEAST the first light attack and remove/nerf the rest if you want, but the first one it’s way too important to remove it.
I thought about some IMO good options, but I don’t know if it must be rounded numbers or not.
Right now Option 1 My option Experimental Light 1 = 10% | | Light 1 = 10% | | Light 1 = 10% | | Light 1 = 7% Light 2 = 10% | | Light 2 = 0% | | Light 2 = 5% | | Light 2 = 6% Light 3 = 10% | | Light 3 = 10% | | Light 3 = 0% | | Light 3 = 7% Light 4 = 10% | | Light 4 = 0% | | Light 4 = 5% | | Light 4 = 0% Total 40% | | Total 20% | | Total 20% | | Total 20%
With the Experimental one you lost the 30% chance you can reach with items, but still have good overall crit chance.
As you see, my examples still respect the 20% nerf, but it would feel way more confortable ingame than with the one you proposed. IMHO would be better to have 10% on the first light then 0% on the rest, rather than 10% on the 3/4. Understand that we’re always mathematically talking. I am not saying that DD will be useless.
