    Critical Rating On Rank 4-5 Epics

    Hi!

    As most of you know, some of the newer rank 4 and 5 epics grant "+1 critical rating" per activation. When you scroll over the critical icon, it displays, "increased criticals":

    I don't know if the effect is infinite/adds to an obscure stat, or goes away after the end of a round. Does anyone have an idea how it works?

    Stat increases are always temporarily. Ones that occur from epics such as riposte 3 go away right before the next planning phase.

    Fine

    Re: Critical Rating On Rank 4-5 Epics

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I would read that to be an increased chance of a Critical hit whenever Overwatch activates.

    From my understanding of it, whenever Overwatch triggers, you get +1 critical rating for the round. So, in a round, Overwatch can trigger 3x, thus a total of +3 critical rating. This +3 critical rating is not for just when Overwatch activates, but for your attacks in general during that round. Once the round ends, the buff will disappear.

    As aforementioned, it's just like Riposte 3's increased dodge. It triggers 3x in a round, 1x=+15 dodge so 3x=+45 dodge rate. It wears off after that round. --Note: That's why I love giving my swash companions Riposte 3 in higher levels like Valencia II, since that +45 dodge rate makes all the difference! (For me, at least) So following the Rank 3 of epics, I believe this idea would also apply to increased criticals.

    You're right, it's most likely until the end of the round. How much would "+1 critical rating", be, anyways?

    As for that, I'm not sure what the calculation for that is, or what is that 1 out of--Like, I see the critical doubloons, the swash shadowdance critical buff and stuff, but they aren't really clear on what it is
