with all the new gear... I am seeing a huge chunk of Crit rating items, well over the last quotas.... has there been a stealth change to the crit ratio, and the devs thinks we should be stacking crit again?
I have had a good look around the websites.. and cant see anything mentioned.... but I am curious if there is now some real intent to all these stats on our sets.
so do we stick to the Hard cap from 2.0 level.... or is that now going up?

I throw the bone out for ppl to chew on.

They just took the lazy way again and simply copy-pasted the exact same horrible stat distribution from the last 3 tiers onto the new gear without any thought into it.

And crit is still crap like before.

The Combat Team stated they would be changing the gain from Crit Rating soon in one of the class question responses (I think it was the Sorcerer one.)

bioware's obsession with critical rating and alacrity es frightening, looks like they want to evade the power-surge mods-enhancements as long as they can

Its it possible to get 100% crit multiplier and at least 30-50% alacrity?

I have now with all buffs about 25% crit rate and 70% multiplier nad 4.5% alacrity... pathetic...

this is exactly why I posted this thread... IF there is a future change planned in crit or it had happened already, it would make cence to put the gear out.. and tweak the calc later. if you have a link to that discussion I would appreciate it.

OK. found this reference by a dev relating to CRIT rating
Crit and other Qestions answered

QUOTE:"The Critical Rating stat is currently adjusted to a level that grants a critical chance with which we are not completely satisfied, and this means that some specializations lacking a built-in auto-crit are at a disadvantage, while specializations like Madness and Corruption that gain utilities and advantages when they critically hit are at an even bigger disadvantage. We will be working to rectify this issue with the Critical Rating stat in the future, and that should alleviate some issues for Madness, Corruption, and many other specializations within the game.

I guess that does imply that all this extra crit rating on the gear will NOT be totally ridiculous with the current CRIT cap... and implies that there COULD be a change on the cards in the future... the fact is we have no timescale... so I think I am going to continue to swap out these big crit bits , and put them into storage for a future change by Bioware
But saying that.. PLS update this post with ANY news you have of future or stealth changes to this rating.

They have said it before.. You need to work towards perfect itemization. It wouldn't be much fun if they handed you perfectly itemized gear.

I dont know what class you're playing, but I'm a Sage Healer. 85% of the mods have crit, which I use none of. This is too much work considering it takes a week just to get one piece of gear.
