In game when you mouse over Critical Strike Chance it says “Chance to deal a critical strike with hits that DO NOT have any SKILL SPECIFIC crit modifiers. The base critical strike chance is 5%”

Shield Throw has a node that adds 4% base crit chance to the attack…since that’s a SKILL SPECIFIC crit modifier does that mean I actually LOSE 1% crit chance or does it add that 4% to the 5% base that all chars have?

The way they word the base crit chance in char stats sheet is very very misleading
