View Full Forums : Critical Affliction Numbers

Well it seems that SOE has given us a new AA called Blood Tithe that does 2%/2%/2% extra on DOT crits.

Now this is pretty sweet but I have been trying to find the other numbers and I cannot seem to find anything concrete.

Critical Affiction:
Improved Critical Affliction:
Affiction Mastery:
Blood Tithe: 2%/2%/2%

Now I have heard that Affiction Mastery does 1%/1%/1% but have not confirmed this. I have also read that Critical Affliction 1 does 4.25% but once again nothing substantial.

Has anyone run any parses? Anyone have SOE's ear and see if they can provide numbers now that they have done so with the latest AA's?

IMHO DOT's are now our main form of DPS but it would be nice to know some exact numbers.

again, using the research i did for the spell calculator, i believe each level is such:
switch(ca * 1) {
case 1 : ca = .03; break;
case 2 : ca = .06; break;
case 3 : ca = .09; break;
case 4 : ca = .12; break;
case 5 : ca = .15; break;
case 6 : ca = .18; break;
case 7 : ca = .20; break;
case 8 : ca = .22; break;
case 9 : ca = .24; break;
default : ca = 0;

so if your numbers are correct, CA12 should be 30% chance to crit on dot.

Errr someone else can do the math... but I found this on, the bard messageboard/site:

"Improved Critical Affliction - Req. Crit Affliction 3 and Level 67/68/69
This ability grants damage-over-time spells an increased chance to have a critical effect each time they are active. (3% addition chance to proc per level, 18% chance to crit on each tick of each DoT doing double damage with CA3 and ICA3)"

I'm not at all sure if it applies to druids or if the bards are correct! =P The above I had posted in this druid grove thread:

With max (pre TSS) DoT Crits I'm running at around 25% crits, which matches Aelfin's figures.

... and both Aelfin's and Seekers' numbers match with what the bards say too.
