Crit %

Yeah, the person posting 35% crit unbuffed is flat out wrong.

Crit is one of our least favorable stats since, in each of our builds, there's talents that guarantee crits for one of the main dps abilties we use, thus anything towards crit for those talents is useless.

Anni-Spec: Crit made useless by beserk (which is up quite often)
Carnage: Free crits on Force Scream
Rage: Free crits on Smash

I'm hovering around 28%, fully buffed. I have a whole awesome 85 to my crit rating and I'm stacking Power like a mofo. I'm also using rage spec which gives 15% crit to vic slash and vic throw, 6% to force attacks, and auto-crits to smash so that's probably why I don't stack crit % at all.

So with Anni and Carnage, maybe you can get a couple more percent.

Basically follow this rule:
Accuracy to 100 (110 on specials) --> 75% surge --> 30% unbuffed crit % --> Power

And from everything I've seen it's 1 Str > 1 Power.

My watchmen sentinel (annihilation marauder) is sitting comfortably at 30% crit fully buffed and stim'd. Aug'd for strength completely (to help increase that crit) so that I can use more power mods.

Crit% is almost irrelevant, as it's dependent on main stat, Crit Rating, and IA buff.

The only component of that worth talking about (because it's the only one you might conceivably remove for something else) is Crit Rating.

123-329 Crit Rating seems to be the window in which you get your greatest benefit, depending on spec and PVP/PVE, and you're basically fine if you're within that window.

If you're over 300ish Crit Rating, you should focus on getting it down.

If you're under 100ish Crit Rating, and you're not primarily a PVPer and spec'd Rage, you should try to get it up a bit. Both Annihilation and Carnage (and Rage in PVE) benefit from some modicum of crit chance, and the ROI on the first 100-120 points is fantastic.
The only post in this thread that isn't filled to the brim with ignorance and misunderstanding.
