Crit rate buffs seem to be stacking rather unimpressively. I might just have repeatedly bad luck, but here's what I'm seeing:

__Expected crit rate:__

- Endgame base rate: 42% (?)

- Bracers level 2: 4%

- City research bonus: 5%

- Statpack enhancements: 3%

- Grimstim: 5% (?)

- Eggnog: 5% (?)

- Monocle: 5% (???)

Total: 69% (?)

I had bad luck and couldn't get wheel spin.

__Actual crit rate:__

.:*~*:.C.:*~*:.R.:*~*:.I.:*~*:.T.:*~*:.S.:*~*:.

.

* Hits ............................925 100% *

. Normal ..........................377 40.76% .

* Critical ........................225 24.32% *

. Staggering .......................146 15.78% .

* Crushing .........................67 7.24% *

. Mutilating .......................46 4.97% .

* Annihilating .....................64 6.92% *

.

* Total hits: 925

. Total criticals: 548

* Crit percentage: 59.24%

Very quickly in, it settled down into a 56% range, until I switched to Arbothia and Teshen, at which point it bounced up to 59%ish. Do different target types affect the rate?

Am I having terribad luck? Do I have some numbers really really wrong? Are certain buffs not applying right? Share your own rates, maybe? I really wish that crit rate was displayed in AUDIT. Report 1740!

5,612✭✭✭✭✭I'm wondering if the thing you are hitting matters for rate? Or maybe there is some weird thing at play with combos? The Teshen I nearly all killed in 1/2 of a SSL combo.

851✭✭✭✭✭EDIT:

I found this table on the old Achaean forums. I assume we use the same numbers for crit chance. 'Gain' is how much your crit chance improved from your last level.

EDIT2:

Why can't we change the font on the forums anymore? This is a bit annoying. Here's the link http://www.achaea.com/forum/critical-hit-guide.

5,612✭✭✭✭✭851✭✭✭✭✭You have scored 26708 staggering critical strikes!

You have scored 15493 crushing critical strikes!

You have scored 9140 mutilating critical strikes!

You have scored 12463 annihilating criticals!

You have scored 110326 total criticals in a total of 158608 attacks!

Your current critical strike rate is 69.56%!

I have a level 4 crit bracer, the ylem bonus, and I occasionally use grimstims/hunt in areas with the compendium crit bonus. Also, not sure if I ever swapped class to bash in a class where I wasn't tracking the attack message and it just let the crits tick up. Fairly sure these numbers are pretty accurate, though.

851✭✭✭✭✭You have scored 97 critical strikes!

You have scored 72 staggering critical strikes!

You have scored 38 crushing critical strikes!

You have scored 20 mutilating critical strikes!

You have scored 34 annihilating criticals!

You have scored 261 total criticals in a total of 522 attacks!

Your current critical strike rate is 50.00%!

My crit bonuses would be artifact (8%), research bonus (5%), augmetics (3%), as well as however much the monocle relic provides. This should add up to at least 58% plus however much the relic bonus is. Seems to be pretty off to me. Seems to have balanced out after continuing bashing:

You have scored 1632 critical strikes!

You have scored 940 staggering critical strikes!

You have scored 528 crushing critical strikes!

You have scored 348 mutilating critical strikes!

You have scored 479 annihilating criticals!

You have scored 3927 total criticals in a total of 6708 attacks!

Your current critical strike rate is 58.54%!

5,612✭✭✭✭✭Expected crit rate:

- Endgame base rate: 42%

- Bracers level 2: 4%

- City research bonus: 5%

- Statpack enhancements: 3%

- Monocle: 2.5%

Total: 56.5%

- Grimstim: (?)

- Wheel bonus: (?)

Audit display: 62.73%

So either grimstim is less than the 5% we all believe it is, or both grim and wheel are only like 3%?

851✭✭✭✭✭/sadface

5,612✭✭✭✭✭148✭✭✭You attack, there is a chance to crit. If you successfully crit it makes another crit check to upgrade to the next crit level. Repeat until it fails to upgrade to the next level or you hit annihilating.

So, it looks like you guys are counting annihilating crits as a single crit, when really that's five successful crit rolls stacked on top of each other. If so, you should calculate:

Normal hits as 1 roll, 0 successes

Critical strikes as 2 rolls, 1 success

Staggering as 3 rolls, 2 successes

Crushing as 4 rolls, 3 successes

Mutilating as 5 rolls, 4 successes

Annihilating as 5 rolls, 5 successes

I could be totally wrong, just feel like somebody told me this is how it worked a long time ago.
