Leveling a melee/spell proc hybrid mage (Mana Strike to be specific) and I have gone over 30 levels without so much as seeing a critical hit. I have made this character since patch 0.6 release. Character sheet shows 15% critical chance but I am getting absolutely 0 (Zero) yellow text.
Now that I reached 31 and am starting to run the arena I figured I’d attempt more to see if maybe the yellow text was no longer a thing for critical hits. First I started by de-specializing Mana Strike and started leveling it from scratch; thinking that having the Celestial Precision node may have been bugging it out (I have 150+ mana, and 15% crit chance). And I went to the dummy in the first town to whack away. With about a 100 attacks (Mana Strike + Mana Storm) I still had 0 critical hits (aka yellow numbers) so now i’m thinking the yellow text is no longer a thing. I watched the numbers, swinging slower so that I could tell if any of them were larger and were crit-like. Still no crits. So now I figured I’d check with more crit chance.
So, I grabbed a sword from the vendor and added ‘Added Melee Crit Chance’ up to +3%, and when equipped my critical hit chance goes up to 19% (and I currently DO NOT have Celestial Precision). Within a few hits I saw yellow text, and this continued about every 5 hits (aka. around 19% crit chance).
I still have yet to see a spell crit (aka the Mana Storm, or those I’ve self-cast trying out various options).
I’ve since got my spell/melee crit up to around 17% and am seeing 0 yellow text. Is there some hidden minimum requirement to crit? Having 17% crit for both spells and melee has been completely useless thus far.
