Low crit chance with crafting

I have been noticing a much lower than expected crit chance when crafting with high level companions so I stopped an made sure to track a group of items I was crafting to make sure I had real information.

I just crafted 30 Bonded Attachments and had 9 criticals. The character is lvl 75. Synthweaving is lvl 700. All crafted with a lvl 50 companion and the game says it has a 75% crit chance.

Granted, that is only 30 attachments but I would have expected much higher numbers if it was truly a 75% crit chance vs the 33.3% I just observed.

I am open to ideas as to how my understanding of all this is wrong or what I am missing. Pretty sure Bioware would not make the information in game this wrong.

Actually, incorrectly displaying the crit chance is a persistent bug that keeps coming back. It's not like they're intentionally making it display wrong, but it's displaying wrong nonetheless. Correct bonuses for a 50 affection companion have consistently been +75% time efficiency and +25% critical.

Thx for the information.

I had thought the crit chance has read 75% for quite some time, well before 6.0. I take it from your post this is a recent bug since bioware would not intentionally.

While I had thought 75% chance had been the max crit chance since BW revamped the companions a few years ago, I am clearly wrong since as you say this is not intentional which would mean we can hope BW would have it becomes intentional neglect and I would hope that would not happen with something so obviously wrong.

Here all all the base Crit rates that SHOULD apply to Crafting
+15% MAX= Hidden Subscriber Bonus +10% for all crew skils, +5% more if it's NOT orange
+25% MAX= Companion Affection Level * 0.5% (still slightly bugged in that it rounds Down to the nearest whole percentage)
+3% MAX = Legacy of crafting, +1% per level (3 available)
+2% Max = Guild Fortune Set
+5% Max = Guild Perk: Professional Training Skill
+3% Max = Guild Perk: Critical _____ # (three categories, crafting, gathering, "mission", each with three levelss, of +1% per level)

BASE_CRIT = Crafting Max Crit = 53%, Gathering/Mission Skills Mission Max Crit = 50%

AFAIK the new amplifiers (Max Bonus 13,5% crit, 18% Efficiency) is calculated differently and is actually
{AMP_CRIT * (1 - BASE_CRIT)}
Giving a New Max of 59.345% for crafting, and 56.75% for other crew skills

Thx for the very detailed information. Hopefully BW fixes this after the more serious issues introduced a couple weeks ago are rectified.

By orange you mean legendary?
Cause that's yellow/golden.
You can't craft oranges anymore.

Difficulty, not products...

Crew Skills have color rated difficulties (and reward different points while leveling)
Grey (0 pts)
Green (1 pts)
Yellow (2-3 pts)
Orange (4 pts)

+10% critical chance, all crew skills (crafting, gather, and mission skills)

it's probably the oldest running bonus we have. IIRC it's actually a holdover from before F2P, and used to be the Base critical chance. it's NEVER been displayed on the UI though.When F2P became a thing, it was only given to subscribers.
If it moves, shoot it.
if it stops moving... shoot it again.
