I would appreciate if someone could assist me in establishing if the critical chance shards I have equipped are bugged or working as intended.

Let me explain where this inquiry is coming from.

- Characters would seem to have a basic 5% critical strike chance.
- I have one character that has 2 critical chance strike shards equipped on items, one of 20% and another of 25%. This gives that character a critical strike chance shown of 7% (5+ 1+ 1.25, rounded down).
- I have another character that as a spear equipped that grants Melee Critical Chance Strike of 4%, and that character shows a critical strike chance of 9%.

My question is, are the Critical Chance Shards are working as intended by giving a percentile increase of the base figure, or are they bugged and should be working as per the other example of the spear (3)?

I am aware that whilst melee has its own specific critical strike chance shard, spells and thrown items do not, but this game is in early access so would like to be sure.

Many thanks.
